We are Vicky and Charisse Pasche, partners in business, partners in crime, and partners for life.
Vicky (pictured left) used to shop in the men's department, and not only was it an uncomfortable process, but men’s clothing isn’t made to fit the curves of a woman’s body. And although the clothing never fit her properly, there was still something about it that gave her confidence. She felt like she could really be her true self. Then she imagined what it would be like to have androgynous style clothes could actually fit her body properly and realized how many other people feel the same exact way. During her research, she found that this wasn't just about gender, this was about FIT, STYLE, and CONFIDENCE. That’s when she and her wife, Charisse started Dapper Boi.
Dapper Boi is a gender-neutral, everyday clothing line for androgynous individuals of all body types. Our goal is to make people feel comfortable and confident in their own skin. Not only is our clothing stylish, but we thought through all the details to make our products fit properly and functionally. Unlike women’s jeans, our jeans have deep front and back pockets; our coin pocket can even fit a large smartphone.
Our button-ups actually have room for curves and we even added hidden snaps on the button placket to ensure there is no chest gap. The list goes on.
This journey started in April 2015 when we launched on Kickstarter. We released a pair of slim-straight, androgynous jeans and when we exceeded our funding goal, we knew that we had something there was truly a need for. Following our Kickstarter campaign, we had more people purchase our jeans and give us testimonials on how their jeans made them look and feel; then we knew that we had something really special! Check out our Kickstarter video below!
Our mission is to create clothing that not only looks good and provides functionality but to also provide clothing for every BODY. It was important to us to make sizes 26-48 available. As we grow, the sizes will increase and we are excited to develop a wide variety of styles to fit all body types.
