Interviewed by LEON, explaining the original meaning of dandy.
Since this word has already well established image in Japan, you can use this word as compliments in Japan. I recommend you not to use it as a compliment in the UK.
I also explained why this cultural misunderstanding happened.
“But a dandy can never be a vulgar man. “(By Charles Baudelaire)
I have also contributed two artiles to LEON December issue, released today.
