Why do we value these high-end fashion brands more than black-owned businesses? #DapperDan pic.twitter.com/Dy2eCo1TjB
People out here saying fuck Dapper Dan but they’ve never fucked with dapper dan before or been in the market for apparel at his price point to begin with.
So they’re outraged about something that has no bearing on their lives.

I literally had conversations w/Harlem Street legends who wore Dapper Dan. This man is so legendary to Uptown & to see him align with capitalistic entities that want to erase the original ppl who supported him—shattered my heart into a million pieces. He sold us out!!!
Fashion icon, Dapper Dan opened Dapper Dan's Boutique in Harlem, New York in 1982 and sold custom clothing that used logos from high-end luxury brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Fendi. Though he is famously associated w NYC, his roots are South Carolina. Watch this:
Dapper Dan will always be a trendsetter. He did it by himself , without the help of anyone. His clothes were bought by drug dealers, Wall Street executives and celebrities. Fake woke people will never tarnish his legacy. They wouldn’t be able to survive in the 80s
If you praised KanYe’s Forbes article yesterday then trashed Dapper Dan’s Breakfast Club interview today, you need to retool your sensibilities.
That Dapper Dan interview on the Breakfast Club was interesting. The first half was great when he was talking about his history in Harlem....
But that second half of the interview left a certain aroma in the air
Man I just watched a very interesting Dapper Dan interview on the Breakfast Club please protect this man at all cost coz he's a walking encyclopedia
The influence of Dapper Dan is so entrenched in mainstream fashion most people don’t even realize it. Giant polo logos on Ralph Lauren shirts? Dapper Dan. Logos all over clothes? Dapper Dan. Billions of people around the world right now are wearing his influence.
There is no FUBU, Roc-A-Wear, Sean John, or any other hip hop artists w/ their own clothes without Dapper Dan. Your iconic 80s hip hop album covers? Dapper Dan. Farnsworth Bentley or André 3000? Dapper Dan. High end fashion lines clothes and shoes copying urban style? Dapper Dan.
Dapper Dan on the breakfast club ... He never lied 🙌🏽
I don’t think twice about ONE motherfukca on Twitter that I don’t know personally.
Dudes in here dissing #DapperDan I BEEN fucking with him since 80something in 125st.

Legendary designer Dapper Dan's new memoir is an invitation to explore everything that led him to where he is http://vntyfr.com/azFPO2f
To sum up...dapper Dan just said he doesn't want to make brands people of color can afford because capitalism! #breakfastclub
In my eyes Dapper Dan will always be a winner. The teachers, the cops, judges and the newspapers all said the urban youth wouldn’t be shit but he made more than millions of dollars and has legacy that will never be tarnished. pic.twitter.com/SW1hjuzlOr
