About me

Kelvin. 31.

Notoriously Dapper is a body positive men’s fashion blog that displays daily looks to inspire all men to embrace who they are. I started this blog after a shopping trip that unfortunately left a bad taste in my mouth. Ever since then I have vowed to never feel that insecure or ashamed of my size again! I started posting outfit looks to inspire and show men of size that you can be stylish regardless of our sometimes limitations when shopping or viewing clothing advertisements.

As an artist I view fashion as an outlet. It is one’s way of expressing themselves to the world. Your body is the blank canvas and your clothes are the medium. Whether it be the shirt, pants, shoes or accessories worn; the outfit is the art making process and the final product is your fashionable creation.

In this blog you will find a daily look book of my personal style. I believe imitation is the sincerest form of flattery; so feel free to get inspired and take risks. Thank you for your support!!

    Your sense of style is very appealing. It is wonderful to see that you are teaching others about art. It is also great when you have a passion for what you know and work at.

    It’s nice to see a guy’s perspective on fashion, and you have a real flair for combining colors and textures.

    I just had one of these moments in my life — at the tender age of 30 I finally pulled all of my life back together and did some things I doubt anyone could have foreseen. Hell, I even went back to school, graduated, and landed my “dream” job. Except programmers sit a lot more than 3rd shift grocery stockers; I hadn’t accounted for that. Finally being able to afford enough food and sitting 10+ hours a day ended up netting me like 60 lbs before I even noticed. Since then my browser history is just filled with lipo and stretch mark removal research. I think I’ve stabilized my weight by being more conscious about my diet, but still, the pride I should have from dragging myself away from drugs and depression and doing so many positive things is just totally overshadowed by this feeling that I’m nothing more than a lazy, fat, ugly lump of flesh, and moobs are all I see in the mirror when I put on anything lighter than one of those thicker Brooks Brother button ups. I’m going to die this Summer, for real.

    I’d just like to thank you for coming out here and sharing your story, your perspective, and your style with la gente. It’s, unfortunately, not a subject many men broach for whatever reason like we just don’t talk about anything. Hopefully something inside of that book helps me find something inside of myself that can accept me and “love the skin I’m in” or whatever. Seriously though, thanks — I’m going to go ahead and follow this site for future updates.

    Fashion is a distinctive and often constant trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of designers, technologists, engineers, and design managers.

    You are an inspiration !
