An interview with Endurance Nweke: What is Dapper

An interview with Endurance Nweke: What is Dapper

Dressing up dapper is never a bad option because you can wear it essentially any social setting, whether it’s for a job interview, first date, networking event, or party. Dapper isn’t only about suiting up from head to toe. It’s more about being creative with your style and getting out of the norm. In preparation for the 4th annual Dapper as **** this weekend, YPOS had the chance to interview local fashion blogger and fellow Seattle Gents influencer Endurance Weke of The Curator of Cool to grab a few tips!

YPOSOne of my favorite parts of the Dapper As * * * * party is the fashion. The guys really bring it! What is one of the easiest things guys can do to dress up and standout?

Endurance Nweke: Now we all know that women bring it every day, so guys we need to bring it once again. The easiest ways to dress up and stand out are to introduce subtle details to your outfits that make it pop. For example, utilizing a seersucker dress shirt gives you a textured look that you can play with and add other patterns and accessories to make it cohesive.

YPOSBrightly patterned and funny designed socks seem to be all the rage right now. How can someone show off their personality and still look dressed up?

EN: The best way to show off your personality is to utilize accessories or take the time to craft your outfit selective so that each standalone piece still says something about you. If you’re opting to use accessories, it’s all about placement. Having a bright pocket square is a nice touch, but you can also have your go-to watch or bracelet and couple that with a lapel pin or broach that you can attach to your blazer that will also add some panache.

YPOSOne size never fits all. What’s an easy alteration you would suggest for everyone’s wardrobe?

EN: An easy alteration for most guys would be to have your trousers custom-fitted. Going to see a tailor is just as important as seeing your barber. Think about it – you only let one person cut your hair because they know your head like no one else does. Getting a tailor is beneficial because they will know your body will change the more you work with them. They can tailor your jeans so it’s a slimmer fit and not such a loose or airy look.

YPOSAccessories really ramp up our outfit for “dapper.” Would you suggest tie, bow-tie, or none at all?

EN: If I had to suggest one, I’d say go bow tie. Have faith in your fit and let the bow tie bring all the attention to your face.
