Hi, I’m Stephen, one of the founders of Dapper Set. I was once a young aspiring financial planner. I found like most young professionals, starting out can be intimidating. You’re expected to know everything, impress everyone, and never be caught off guard. Part of being on your 'A' game is looking sharp. The clothes don’t make the man, but they can add something important. Confidence. Confidence creates an image people respect and trust. Confidence is what makes you believe you can get that next promotion, that you can close that new client. When you believe in yourself, the people around you follow suit.
I always wanted to help make the road a little easier for new gentlemen coming up. As the years passed, I became more successful, but I began losing our most precious resource, time.
The dream of starting Dapper Set started to seem more unrealistic. Along comes Ally. Ally has experience building start-up retail businesses; she understands marketing, how to build a website, dealing with suppliers - all the stuff I would’ve had to learn from scratch. They say every man with dreams needs a woman with vision beside them. For me, that’s Ally.
From this Dapper Set was born.
Building a respectable wardrobe can be daunting. There are so many combinations and rules. Not to mention suiting can be very expensive. So where does that leave the young professional? Often, overwhelmed and underfunded. Enter Dapper Set.
Neutral suit, white shirt, dark shoes, we’ll do the rest.
Hi I'm Ally, one of the founders of Dapper Set. With my experiences in small business management and marketing, together with Stephen, we were able to combine our knowledge and passion to create Dapper Set. His vision of helping others build confidence in themselves and their presentation - the way he built himself - is our inspiration and goal.
