The Nordiska museet in Stockholm has on view, through May 11, 2011, on of the most delightful exhibitions of menswear (perhaps) ever assembled.

The installation asks –

What is a dandy? What does he look like? Some say a dandy is a particular person. Others say a dandy is a way of life. The key to finding a dandy lies in the details. Here we look at the dandy from every possible angle, so join us on our dandy journey!

Most importantly the material exhibited is beautifully staged, with full design credit to Form Us By Love. Exquisite stuff. This, and the Drawing Fashion exhibition in London both push garment and fashion based exhibitions to new levels of display.
