A dandy (also known as a beau or gallant) is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self.

Historically, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain, a dandy, who was self-made, often strove to imitate an aristocratic style of life despite coming from a middle-class background. -per wikipedia

Some famous dandies include:

Beau Brummell
Lord Byron
Oscar Wilde
Berry Wall, king of dudes

In the next couple days I will present some dandies I found in fiction.
