I appreciate that Wellington enjoys using the word "dandy". He cultivates a persona - not a costume, but a character. Walking thru his neighborhood he got a lot of attention (more than the white folks with the camera following him!), and this older fella walked passed and said, "I'm glad they're still doing it". I understood, but it's hard to put in words. Back in the day pretty much everyone was expected to dress more formally, but now it is a choice - and can be a bold decision.
