Feature Friday – Sully & Co.
Today’s Feature Friday spotlights our first retail partner in Colorado: Sully & Co. Located in Denver, the store celebrated its grand opening last month. Mark Snipe, the shop’s owner, worked in the fashion industry for seven years. During that time, he realized it wasn’t always easy to find shops that offered well-made men’s clothes. Snipe decided to open a store that would do just that—simplify shopping by offering only quality clothing that he (and others) would want to wear. Sully & Co. carries a wide selection of casual and dress menswear. Like Dapper Classics, Snipe is committed to American manufacturing. Sully & Co. exclusively carries Made in USA brands.

Introducing Dapper Classics American-Made Trousers
We’re excited to introduce the inaugural line of Dapper Classics trousers. Dapper Classics trousers are hand tailored in Brooklyn, New York at a factory with nearly 100 years of tailoring expertise.
The inaugural Dapper Classics trouser collection includes four unique styles: a 100% Worsted Lambswool Flannel in light gray; two Super 120s Wool Flannel options — mid gray and winter blue; and a 100% Cotton Moleskin in camel.
Dapper Classics trousers are cut slim, but not skinny, with a mid-rise. They are expertly tailored with a flat front, rear-split waistband, zip fly, button waist closure, and lining to the knee. Our trousers have an unfinished inseam, making it easier for wearers to personalize their look. Complement your trousers with a Dapper Classics necktie and Dapper Classics socks for a complete dapper look.
Feature Friday – Oklahoma City Museum of Art
Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Oklahoma: Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The OKC Museum of Art is the first museum to carry Dapper Classics socks.

The museum’s impressive collection covers a period of five centuries—highlighting American and European art from the last three centuries.

Oklahoma City is the capital and largest city of Oklahoma. OKC was founded during the Land Run of 1889. The city features one of the largest livestock markets in the world.

OKC has been home to many well-known figures, including Johnny Bench and Vince Gill.
Introducing Dapper Classics American-Made Neckties
We’re excited to introduce the inaugural line of Dapper Classics neckties. This limited run of handcrafted, Made in USA neckties includes six pure silk styles in navy, gray, purple, burgundy, and hunter green–all designed by The Dapper Classics Team.
Dapper Classics 100% Italian silk neckties are handmade in New York by a seven-person team. The first person lines up the fabric, traces the pattern, and makes the initial cuts. The second person sews the pieces together inside out. The third person inserts the lining and turns the fabric on its proper side. The fourth person irons the fabric. The fifth person completes the hand bartacks. The sixth person inspects the ties for quality. The seventh person is responsible for the final step–attaching the labels.
As we say, “Dapper is in the Details.” By adding neckties to our brand, we’re simply becoming even more detail-oriented. Pair Dapper Classics neckties with Dapper Classics dress socks and look dapper from head to toe.
