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 Decision Thread – Camel vs Charcoal Coats

Best Friday Challenge – Show Us Your Lid
Let’s be honest, unless you’re Justin Timberlake pulling off a proper hat in style is no easy task. This week’s challenge asked members to put together their best outfit highlighted with a hat. User Shomas knocked it out of the park with his Stetson paired with a Schott leather jacket, Banana Republic sweater, Ratio shirt, Uniqlo jeans, and Alden shoes. Check out all of the entries here.
Best Thrift Find – Florsheim Imperial Longwings
User Jairus recently stumbled upon a vintage pair of Florsheim Imperials in wonderful shape. With a quick application of shoe cream and a trip to the cobbler to soften the heels, these pebble grain longwings for $20 are tough to beat!
Most Cheerful Thread – Holiday Velvet
With Holiday parties around the corner, Threads members contemplate the allure of splurging on a velvet piece this season. There are several factors to consider when splurging on a such a non-versatile item like a velvet blazer, including color, lapel style, etc. Can the right velvet jacket be worth the plunge? If you own a velvet blazer or have been considering purchasing one, check out this thread and share your thoughts with the community!
