sock it to me!

Seven hundred and some pairs of socks ago, I had an aversion to licensed characters on my hosiery. I felt they were too much commitment when I only wanted festive socks that supported my clothes. Well, today’s a new day, it would seem… The biggest haul in awhile now. I mean, the Fairly Odd Parents […]

it’s a sockness

Obsession, amusement, sickness. Let’s go with sockness. This has been creeping up on me for over three years now, the last two with a partner that full embraces and enables my obsession. (Almost a foot shorter than me, the only clothes we can share are neckties and socks…)

tying the knot anew

A friend posted a link to a how-to over on Facebook. I was curious. It is called the Eldredge knot. It has limits as to the pattern that can be used with it; the smaller, the better. Here’s the how-to, over on black lapel.

pushing past the mood

It may be easy to notice that dapperkink has been light on content recently. A move last year left me in a space in dire need of attention. So much so, that I don’t even have a decent backdrop for photo-shoots. This has been halting me from documenting anything in terms of my evolving personal […]
