About this project

Dapper+Dash celebrates this vintage men’s accessory by adaptively reusing vintage clothing and other vintage materials to create a product as unique as the man who will wear it.

In the heart of Downtown Phoenix, Dapper + Dash begins with the essentials. Only the best vintage ties and materials are considered. Once they pass the test, these materials, often found buried in closets and long forgotten, find new life. The materials are repurposed, cut by hand and stitched into one of three patterns to create dapper bow ties for a dashing man or wo-man.


This Kickstarter project will fund our new subscription service that we want to start in Fall of 2013. We have all the pieces in place and now we need your help in funding this project.

The packaging is produced locally with an eye to sustainability: each bow tie is distributed in repurposed sturdy, lightweight handcrafted tube, stamped by hand with the Dapper + Dash logo then sent to its final destination.

Adrienne Gonzales is The Createable Lady Sewing & Design guru.  She's pretty kick ass for everything that she's done with Dapper+Dash products and how they come to life. 

Safwat Saleem is an award winning graphic designer, filmmaker, artist and overall bad ass based in Phoenix, Arizona. If not for Safwat, we probably would have just made our Kickstarter with an iPhone, a kazoo and a donkey.  Do yourself a favor and check out SafwatSaleem.com

Thank you for considering funding this Kickstarter. If you have any further questions please feel free to message Dapper+Dash.

Risks and challenges
