Dandyism

the founder of this look was Beau Brummell, who inspired England, the United States and the whole of Europe with a taste based on simplicity, plain colours and the restrained use of accessories. Also played a role in establishing black as the colour of the gentleman's festive suit. At the turn of the 19th century, young Englishmen (called "dandies") strove to make this new fashion permanent; this simple, elegant suit was composed of long trousers, jacket, waistcoat and coat.
