Dapper Classics – Year Six in Review

A style from our first-ever Cashmere Collection

Today we celebrate six years in business. This past year has been an exciting one for Dapper Classics. Below are some highlights from our sixth year:

-In the last year, we introduced our first collection of Cashmere socks. These luxurious socks are knitted with a cashmere blend that makes for an exceptionally smooth fit – perfect for the gentleman looking to take his “sock game” to the next level.

-This past year we also introduced a limited run of Italian Leather satchels. Available in three colors, our satchels are handcrafted near Florence, Italy by craftsmen with more than 25 years of expertise with leather goods.

-Over the last year, we continued to expand our Five to Nine Collection – Made in USA socks for smaller shoe sizes – and our hand-tailored trousers offerings.

-At this time last year, our socks could be purchased in approximately 240 fine men’s retailers. Now our socks can be found in more than 280 specialty stores throughout the United States.

-This last year witnessed more collaborations with our friends at Keeneland and Kentucky for Kentucky, along with exciting new projects with other organizations and custom and private label programs with retailers.

Thank you for supporting Dapper Classics over the last year. We look forward to year seven.
