  • Model Bridgette In Her Jeans

    We heart Bridgette.  She's been in quite a few of our fashion shows as well as some fun social media photoshoots.  She's also a loyal Dapper Boi customer, fan and really just an awesome, down-to-earth human being in general.
    We LOVE our loyal customers and we LOVE receiving feedback on our products, so we thought we'd start interviewing people and sharing with you all.  Who better to start with than Bridgette!  

    Here goes!
    1.  What is your favorite way to wear DB jeans?

    Cuffed, with either flip flops while walking on the beach or wearing
    my fav biker boots as I ride up the coast with the ocean breeze.

    2.  What inspires you?

    I’m inspired by positive forward thinking, success from within one’s
    self, and the ability to fail forward.

    3.  What is the perfect Friday night?

    An easy walk under the sunset after dinner;  a glass or two of wine in
    the hot tub, a soothing warm oil massage to sustain the mood, and a
    cozy nap followed by a sexually delightful wake up in the middle of
    the night.

    4.  What is your favorite way to wear your DB jeans (with button up,
    shoes, etc)?

    I love to wear my DB jeans with my DB “V” Neck T, my snap back and a
    pair of funky boots to compliment the funky DB seam and bowtie.

    5.  What compliments have you received on your Dapper Boi jeans?

    The way they hug my big round “ass” the cool bowtie at the cuff, the
    sexy dark blue denim, and the all-around look in everything I wear
    them with…

    LOVE LOVE LOVE, thanks Bridgette!

  • Long Hair? Don't Care.

    Eighteen. That’s how old I was when I admitted to myself that I was gay for the first time. Having gone to catholic high school and elementary school, it was engrained in me from a very young age that being gay was not something that you wanted to be. I didn’t even know how to be gay, let alone how to express myself. Once I graduated, I moved to San Diego and started learning and exploring about what it meant to be gay.

    I began with the stereotypical items, flannels and snapbacks. While these items did help me express myself, there was still something missing.

    One day I knew what it was, and the thought itself made me feel very anxious.

    I wanted to get rid of my long hair; I wanted to cut my hair short.

    But I couldn’t just cut off all of my hair could I? What would my parents, who are immigrants from very traditional countries, think about this? How would my life change? Would I walk around all the time wondering what people thought of me? Would my friends and family disown me after realizing why I cut my hair?

    All of these thoughts raced through my head for months, down to the very last second that those scissors made the first cut. There was no turning back.


    Fast-forward a year later, and my hair is long once again. You may ask, “but what made you grow it out?”

    The answer is as simple as it is difficult, I was tired of listening to all of the negative remarks that my family threw at me whether they were intentional or not.

     “I miss your long hair.”

    “Are you going for the boy look?”

    “Why don’t you wear a nice blouse or a little heel once in a while?”

    “Oh I see, you’re going for that dyke-y look!”

    And the most painful one, asked by my mother...“Well how do you expect to get a job looking like that?”

    Ouch Mom. Nice to know that you have more faith in what my hair looks like to get me a job rather than my personality and skill sets.

    That very question was the reason that I decided to cut my hair again, because this is who I am.

    Short hair gives me the confidence that long hair will never be able to give. Short hair perfectly expresses my masculine gender expression that I prefer. My haircut does not define who I am, but my haircut is a part of who I am.
