Dandies Project Press

The Dandies Project is creating positive buzz.  Check out some of the media coverage below.

“The Dandies Project” is a hardback, full-color photo book of Twin Cities men of color who, according to the project’s visionary exemplify class, style and sophistication. Complete with the gentlemen’s bios, the book tells a story with pictures and words.”

By Harry Colbert, Jr., Insight News

Added Moody, “If we can get young men to understand it’s about application. You don’t need to have a lot of money to have style, but you have to have a style to present yourself with to get in the door.”

The Dandies Project Coming April 5, 2014

The Dandies Project is a photo project designed to highlight the positive impact that many men of color have brought to their own community not only doing it with a sense of purpose but a sense of style!!
The Dandies Project in its physical form will be a yearly coffee table book that will highlight various dandies style and backgrounds.
Our mission is simple, “giving new life to the story of the “man of color.”

The goal of this yearly book would be to bring more
positive light to the role of men of color in society and to also bring light to local and national charities who are making positive strides in bringing positive impact to the community.

Overall there are roughly 17 dandies to be featured in this years book that will take place at Handsome Cycles on Saturday April 5th from 7pm – 10pm which will include prints from the photo exhibit and copies of the book for patrons to view and pre-order.


The Mission
The Dandies Project was designed to highlight the positive influence & impact that men of color have in their community while keeping a strong sense of individuality thru personal self awareness and style.

The Dandy Description
(dan·dy): a gentleman who places particular importance upon physical aesthetics, refined in language and leisure. His life pursued with the importance of individuality while having a driven purpose.
