I stopped by Wale Oyejide's home in Philly on my way back from the Seersucker Social in Washington DC in June 2011.   We walked around his neighborhood and people stared and the old lady on the corner asked him who he was to be getting photographed and we got to know each other a little.  I know him from his blog Less Gentlemen, and found out he is quite a musician, originally from Nigeria, and also a lawyer.

One might not consider him a dandy - that illusive term - because his style is somewhat understated, but he takes such care with his clothing and all the details...what else could it be called?  If not dandy, then what?  Is there another term we should be using?  Well, he is certainly a gentleman.  And he understands that dressing well is revolutionary in a world of sweatpants and sneakers.
