A happy follow-up to a post I did on Dapper D, the first local clothing company to my knowledge that explicitly markets to the LGBTQ community with their designs of "men's style clothing for women." Back in May, I wrote about the Kickstarter they were running to get things off the ground, and then shortly after we featured the couple behind the line, Vanna and Rasha Pecoraro. In the short months since, their Kickstarter succeeded, and they opened for business at the start of this month, garnering press from places like Curve Magazine and Seattle Gay News. The clothing is simple and meant to be for everyday: shirts, hoodies, and simple accessories. It'll be interesting to see how things evolve, though, if the concept takes hold.
