We’re excited to introduce our new Grenadine Collection. Our silk grenadine ties are woven on one of the few remaining antique looms in the world–making them a classic addition to your wardrobe and a great conversation piece. Like all Dapper Classics neckties, these are handcrafted in New York City by a team of experienced artisans. These truly unique ties are available in very limited quantities. Get yours while supplies last!
Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Florida: Rosenblum’s. Frank Rosenblum founded Rosenblum’s in 1898. Rosenblum’s is now in its third-generation of family ownership. Rosenblum’s has two locations – Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach. Both stores offer fine clothing and accessories for men and women. With over 100 years in business, Rosenblum’s has become a staple within the Jacksonville area.
Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the contiguous United States and the largest city by population in Florida. Jacksonville is named after President Andrew Jackson. The city, a popular tourist destination, is home to two United States Navy bases.
Pi Kappa Phi was founded in 1904 at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Over the last 110 years, the fraternity has grown from a membership of 3 to more than 100,000 – with chapters in nearly every state in America. Recently, the fraternity reached out to Dapper Classics to see if we could make some socks exclusively for Pi Kappa Phi. We were happy to knit a unique design which features the fraternity’s colors and star and swords logo (pictured right).
Pi Kappa Phi’s mission is “To create an uncommon and lifelong brotherhood that develops leaders and encourages service to others for the betterment of our communities.” The fraternity’s alumni features leaders across a variety of fields, including Henry Fowler (former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury), Randy Owen (lead singer of the Grammy Award-winning country band Alabama), and Rich Eisen (sports journalist). To learn more about Pi Kappa Phi, visit their website.
Dapper Classics is glad to knit custom socks for fraternities. If your fraternity is interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
