We thought it was high time to let Boston dapperQs provide us with some holiday and New Year’s Eve style inspiration for our long running HS/WS project.
Molly followed Sharpe Suiting’s founder and CEO, Leon Wu, around with her camera for a day and learned all about his LA-based company that creates gender-neutral ready-to-wear clothing and custom suits (and now dresses!) for all body types and all identities.
He Said/We Said brings you masculine-of-center interpretations of the last Band of Outsiders collection at a gorgeous old-time paper mill in Vermont.
In this edition of He Said/ We Said, dapperQ features the masculine gender queer style of some amazing queers in Toronto!
Bright colors, eclectic prints and carefree dress are featured in this edition of He Said / We Said.
Including Autostraddle’s own Lydia and A-Camper Magda!
Part sapeur, part Janelle Monae, a recent spread from Blackattitude titled “Dandy Queens” is down-right stunning.
“Yes, the queers have always been a force in fashion, but they’ve been behind the scenes. Queer Fashion Week puts us in the spotlight. The mission was to showcase artists, stylists, and designers who create work for all body types and genders.”
We’ll be back in Cincy shortly, but in the meantime we have returned home to catch up with some of New York City’s finest dappers.
For our 21st edition, we’ve invited some dashing and stylish queers of Cincinnati to show us their swag.
Don’t let an all-black dress code get you down. Use pieces you already own to create pulled-together looks worthy of the holiday season.
dapperQ showcases “that Philly swag” and the city’s beautiful architecture.
It gets bleeping cold in Vermont, so the dappers there are not playing around when it comes to style that is both fashionable and functional. The collection is rugged, stylish, and perfect for cold weather wardrobes.
Like a boi band.
For our 18th edition of HS/WS, we returned to Cali, this time focusing on SoCal style.
dapperQ just came out with their second list of 100 most stylish individuals, and boy, does it deliver on the dapper!
“After a lifetime of having to conform to an image of femininity that weighed on me like a suit of armor, I cannot express how empowering it felt to be embraced and celebrated for my authentic self.”
Only a set reminiscent of a Dexter crime scene would suffice in capturing the killer outfits we have for you this quarter.
“Once my people were maligned; tonight we are the talk of the town.”
The DapperQ Fashion Show, is an act of revolt. It’s a fist in the air for dykes, queer people, gender neutral people, trans people, all the fucking fabulous beautiful people to shout We belong here and We will create our own spaces.
