Introducing Swing Dandies: Modern & Vintage Lindy Hop Fashion Photo Website
The new website Swing Dandies has a very simple purpose:
We asked a group of our fashion-loving swing friends that if they ever saw someone wearing something they liked, to simply take a picture and we’d post it.
“We” in this case is Laura Windley from Lindyshopper and me, Bobby White, from Fine & Dandy. And the friends we have asked so far are none other than some of the scene’s most noted sartorialists. In alphabetical order, they are Bobby Bonsey, Mia Goldsmith, Beth Grover, Chris Harm, Jo Hoffberg, Yossef Mendelssohn, Pontus Persson, and Kevin St. Laurent.
Overall, we’re not going to discriminate: Our correspondents, as some of them travel the globe to teach swing dances, and others travel the photo archives and vintage stores of the country, have been given only one rule: If they think it’s cool and swing dancers should too, then we post it.
Currently, this website is an idea we want to try out; we may add crew members over time, to make sure we’re covering all corners of the scene. We’ll give it a year, and if it goes well enough, we’ll continue.
So, please enjoy SwingDandies.com.
