Four score and... well actually two and a half or so years ago, I started this blog as a way of documenting my personal style to share with other sartorially minded folks. Back then, I lived in a tiny town in Southwest Virginia, worked for my alma mater on the most entry of entry level salaries, and no real understanding of the fashion industry. Fast forward to the present, I am leaving Washington, DC after opening two of what some may say are the best non-independent stores for men in the city to move to New York to be a part of the Carson Street team and star in my own version of How To Make It In America (RIP). This blog, as well as my Tumblr, have taken a marked change since I started working in "the industry" back in May. Fewer posts, even fewer questions answered, and virtually no activity here on the .com. Though I've always maintained that I do this as a hobby, I'd be lying if I said that each and every person that's followed me here or on Life and Times of C. Benjamin didn't help me get to where I am today and I thank you. That said, I think it's about time I officially bid adieu to Dapper Demeanor in this form. I haven't really had the time or energy to produce the level of content that I've wanted to for quite a while now. My Tumblr, however, will remain and I will be doing my best to do more than just reblog pictures of Rashida Jones. I will also be working on pieces for Carson Street, so be sure and stay tuned for that. May this new year bring all of the followers of Dapper Demeanor health, wealth, success, and most importantly happiness, and always remember to holla at a player when you see me on the streets.
