That Dapper Chap is a collaboration of creativity, gentlemanly style, and fun between four friends, George, Celeste, Mikaela, and Laura. Our label was born out of a desire to have quality handmade accessories that mean more than a price tag.

We felt that something special had been lost over time, something tactile and traditional, and that something was the art of tying (and wearing) a bow tie.

Combining technology, craftsmanship and locally sourced materials, we handcraft specialty accessories for the men of Melbourne and beyond.

We produce classically styled self-tie bow ties with a view that no bow tie should be perfectly symmetrical and we believe that imperfection is what makes us great, what makes us human.

Our range of contemporary accessories is our tribute to you; to the doers, thinkers, and sleeper-inners. This label is our tribute to the creased shirts, and spilt coffee; to achieving new heights, and to enjoying the quiet moments.

We hope you love our bow ties as much as we love making them.
