Recap of Dapper as ****
For the second year in a row, we partnered with the Young Professionals of Seattle to host the 5th annual premiere summer party Dapper as ****! We had such a blast partying with 500+ of the most fashion-forward, influential young professionals in the city.
There were so many fun things about the party: DJ, several bars, lawn games, photo booth, and other activities. Representatives from our sponsors DITA Eyewear and Indochino displayed some of their products so that guests could stop by and explore the brands.
It’s always a great time mingling, meeting new people, and introducing ourselves to a group of young professionals who might not have even heard of us! If you didn’t get to attend Dapper as **** this year, stay up to date with our upcoming events.

Gloria Cropper (Bottom) has her own business where she takes people’s dogs on adventures and offers training sessions and overnight boarding. They both love fashion and enjoy getting style inspiration from local experts. Check out below the outfits they chose!
Most people wouldn’t think of thrifting shopping at Goodwill. It’s a hidden secret that you can find some beautiful and great-quality pieces for cheap prices. Do you ever struggle with what to wear at a date with that special someone, networking event with other professionals, or happy hour with friends? Well, to prepare for the Dapper as **** party, we are hosting a panel of local personal stylists to talk about the do’s and don’t’s of fashion in Seattle!

On June 19th, we hosted a very special Whiskey Wednesday to celebrate Dapper as **** with the Young Professionals of Seattle (YPOS).
Dapper as * * * * was launched by YPOS back in 2014 with intentions to provide the growing young professional community with a unique event experience, promoting fashion and networking while celebrating the close of a beautiful Seattle Summer. For the second year in a row, we have partnered up with YPOS to enhance the event experience and help bridge the gap between local fashion, social media influencers and young professionals.

Last week, we had an incredible experience getting our community together for the launch of the new Rodd & Gunn store at Bellevue Square! Rodd & Gunn is a New Zealand lifestyle brand that offers a range of men’s apparel, from casual to formal wear. We had such a fun time getting to know new faces in our community, the Rodd & Gunn staff, and sipping amazing wine that they brought all the way from New Zealand.
The best part of the event was the style session that a few of the Seattle Gents influencers led! The influencers picked a couple guests, went through the store to select an outfit they think would best suit the guest, and had them try it on. The influencers then presented the outfit that the guest wore and explained why they styled him that way. To wrap up the event, we drew raffle tickets for 2 guests to win a $500 gift card to the store. The evening was a fun celebration of the new store and we’re happy that guests walked away knowing more about the brand!

We recently hosted an event with J. Hilburn & Weldon Barber in Bellevue, WA. It was an incredible environment for those who were looking to learn more about stepping up their style and network with other like-minded individuals.
If you missed the event, here were some of the event highlights:
- J. Hilburn talked about the importance of fit, why details matter, and understanding your own personal brand. Shannon also went through a custom shirt selection to see how many design details there truly are and how one’s individual brand can be expressed just through a shirt.
- Weldon Barber talked about current grooming trends and how Weldon adapts to them. They hosted a raffle drawing for two guests to each win a $50 gift card and product of their choice.
- J. Hilburn & Weldon provided small gifts for guests as well as complimentary food, beverages, and neck shaves!
If you are interested in exploring J. Hilburn products, Shannon Bennett from the Bellevue showroom is personally offering $10 off of your purchase if you mention Seattle Gents within the next 3 months!
