The Top Ten Best Dressed Famous Men of All Time: Number 8

Coming in today at number eight is a man who is certainly a dandy, and he is an individual that could easily be number one on other lists. Yes, number eight is Richard Merkin. Richard demonstrates some of the most beautiful outfits I have ever seen, and I love his tweed suits, cream linen suits, dandified hats, walking sticks, and favoring a boutonniere over pocket squares. In addition, his footwear is remarkable. For example, notice the kiltie loafers he is wearing with his cream linen suit. So, if Mr. Merkin could be number one on other lists, why did I choose him for number eight? The answer is mostly for his dandy style. It suits him, but I cannot choose a true dandy for the number one spot. This is of course WASP 101, and not Dandyism.net.
