Our Story


Who are we? Who is That Dapper Chap?

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) quality mens accessories.

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 and ties, with a view that no one should be perfectly symmetrical. 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 products as much as we love making them.

We are proud to be Melbourne made and owned.

The Dapper way is simple. The making process of your bow tie is simple. There is no middle-man, just the Dapper man. We are from Melbourne, and for Melbourne

We source our hand picked fabrics from local stockists, and strongly believe in supporting local businesses. They support us in turn, by supplying quality materials for quality products and people. 

We draw our style from those that walk the streets of this city, to bring you on-point designs and trends. 

We draw and sketch, sip and chat, then cut and stitch to bring you an entirely unique, one off creation. No two are the same, and each is made by hand, just for you. 

We are big believers in imperfection. It is what grounds us, what reminds us that we are human. Perfection isn’t always symmetry. Perfection is in the creased shirts and spilt coffee.

So we take what we see, and use our hands to make something beautiful that reflects this place, it’s people, and the dapper way.
