More about JC and Being Dapper…

Being Dapper was established in April 2011 by JC Donaldson as a men’s fashion blog. The topics that were discussed etiquette, travel, men’s fashion and financial literacy. Soon after the blog was established requests started to come in for men’s clothing. Being Dapper had never designed garments, so they started off small by just making men’s flower lapels in 2015. Relocating from TX to Arizona Being Dapper found that a good deal of men did not dress up and were very casual. The idea of the gentleman’s t-shirt was created, in which a man could still remain stylish yet casual. As well as sending a message when the clothes were worn instead of being labeled ranked. We believe that Being Dapper is a lifestyle and encompasses everything that a man wears and does. Our apparel is heavily influenced with the art deco movement. We have only one goal that is to help men Stay Dapper but not just designing clothes but showing them how to live that lifestyle through traveling, etiquette lessons, financial literacy and fashion.
