Robert Sacheli is an American writer and graphic designer. With a background in the performing arts, he brings a raffish bohemianism to his approach to fashion. He is a columnist for Dandyism.net, where he has written about style icons such as Fred Astaire, Gerald Murphy, Anton Walbrook, and Noel Coward. He has also written about Coward for theater companies in Washington, DC, and New Zealand. He has worn a codpiece, cravat, and Regency sideburns onstage, although not simultaneously. He is fond of collecting 19th-century art, travel, fine dining and cigars, and being called “raffish.”
