104-Year-Young Grandpa Has More Style Than You (And Less Years Than Internet Says)

104-Year-Young Grandpa Has More Style Than You (And Less Years Than Internet Says) | Dandyism | Scoop.it
Fashion is something that changes with time, but certain fashions are timeless. Take this elderly gentleman, Günther Krabbenhöft, who was recently photographed in Berlin near the Kotbusser Tor station. While some other sources incorrectly reported this man’s age as 104, the grandpa himself says on his FB profile that the Internet has doubled his age. Various other sources say he's between 68-70 years old; the fact is, modern day hipsters could take a few lessons from this guy.

New Republic From the Stacks: Was Oscar Wilde's Outlandish Personality More Influential Than His Writing?

New Republic From the Stacks: Was Oscar Wilde's Outlandish Personality More Influential Than His Writing? | Dandyism | Scoop.it
Henry James called him a "fatuous cad," but we all know he was just jealous.

 

"I was a man who stood in symbolic relations to the art and culture of my age," said Oscar Wilde in that curious literary document, De Profundis. "Few men hold such a position in their own lifetime, and have it so recognized." He was wrong so far as his own lifetime was concerned, for the late Victorians would have been shocked or amused at the thought that this dandy, with his defiant creed of amoralism in the cause of art, should be regarded as anything but a deviant from the general current of the period. Yet, with a historical irony Wilde himself might have regarded as a vindication of his own playful doctrine of Life imitating Art, the symbolic relationship he demanded has been granted tacitly by posterity.
