Who am I?
A graduate who wishes to indulge in his love for fashion and dressing well, before diving into a monochrome world of suits, suits and suits.
Why did I start this blog?
I love dressing well. I’ve always believed that dressing well meant putting the best version of yourself forward, and let’s face it. Everyone wants to be their best. Then one day a friend of mine asked me to start a style blog, and I thought seriously about it. After all, it was a good alternative platform apart from instagram to feature my outfits, as well as gives me a little more freedom to write more about how I pieced the look together.

Are you not afraid of being laughed / mocked?
I am terrified. While I like to pride myself as being thick-skinned, the truth of the matter is that I care about what others think of me. Being afraid of getting mocked was the biggest con of starting this blog. I know this blog won’t last very long. I’ll probably shut it down once I buckle down and get ready for work. Heck, I might not even have time for it once school starts. But I started this blog anyway because I wanted to do something for myself. This is what I want to do. So I basically just told myself to man up and get to it, and hopefully
this whole thing I won’t turn out to be a joke.
If you happen to chance upon this blog, be kind! =D
Why “Hello, Dapper Dan”?
There is no particular reason why I chose “Dapper Dan”, except that the name stuck when I was watching Modern Family S3E22. The Dapper Dans are a barbershop quartet group that performs in Disneyland. They are always dressed smartly, with a little bit of quirkiness and fun thrown in with the pinstripe suits, top hats etc. Since I was trying to find a suitable name for the blog using the word “Dapper”, thought I might use it. =D
