What’s Dappered Threads? It’s our forum. Launched in 2011, Threads has become a not too big, not too small, just-right-sized forum that doesn’t put up with snobbery. All thanks to the users and hardworking mods. Once a month, one of the mods from Threads provides us with a highlight package of the last few weeks.

Best “Rebellious” Thread – I Meant To Do That!
Rules are meant to be broken, right? Dappered readers discuss various “style rules” that they simply choose not to follow.

Jeans, chinos, colored denim, etc. I like them, they are comfortable, and my feet don’t sweat nearly as much in them. Come at me with those pitchforks!” Check out this thread and see what other “style rules” are being thrown to the wind.

Trendiest Thread – Are Birkenstocks Back?
A few style publications recently have hyped Birkenstocks as a “new” trend in mens fashion but Dappered readers aren’t biting. Is there any credence to this trend or are these publications grasping at straws?
