A 19th century-ish term for what is basically a metrosexual
. A dandy
, if you will. Usually high-cultured, well-dressed, very social individual who enjoys fashion and parties and prissy things like that. Perfect personal hygiene. NOT always gay, though often so. Often cannot actually afford this expensive, high-class lifestyle but somehow tries to live it anyway.
"What is he doing wearing that $200 shirt when he can barely pay his rent? Fop!"
