The Transitions Collection features six themes with each containing a range of bowties, ties, pocket squares and cufflinks with all fabrics sourced from Phillips Shirts, the longest running menswear label in Melbourne.

The closing of the Phillips Shirts factory and shop on Little Lonsdale Street created an opportunity for the Dapper team to buy up big from the iconic labels factory.

“We snapped up what we could in the hope to preserve our own little snapshot of Melbourne’s rag trade history,” George says.

“We hope to continue the legacy of Phillip Phillips and Alex Peterfreund, the original dapper chap’s of Melbourne, along with Andrew Peterfreund, son of Alex, who has run Phillips since 1988.”
