The men of LaGrange and the surrounding area now have a place of their own to get their looks together. The Dapper Den is on its way to LaGrange, thanks to co-owners Blaise Green and Brandon Adams. Green has a background in accounting and operations for a manufacturing and logistics company located in Prattville, Alabama. Adams is the general manager of Air Force Heating and Air in LaGrange and has years of experience in operations and successfully managing large teams of people. He also has an extensive background in emergency medical services.
The Dapper Den is not only going to be a one-stop shopping and barbering space for men, but also an experience tailored specifically for them. “Our rustic yet cozy lounge area is the perfect place to relax while you wait for your grooming appointment. Need a breath of fresh air? Enjoy our covered patio or even visit the brewery next door before your appointment begins,” Green says. The business will provide apparel for the blue or white collar man with seasonal casual wear in between. There will be in-house personal styling from Sandy Lee who brings years of experience in the industry, according to Green. Men looking for a new decanter or pair of shades can find all of that here, too. It is even a nice place for loved ones to find the men in their lives a gift for Father’s Day or birthday.
In terms of grooming services, they developed a “therapeutic, yet authentic approach.” For those needing a touch-up, customers can arrange a basic cut. Those needing to “put the phone on silent and unwind a bit” can schedule a premium cut tailored to their style.This includes a complementary scotch or beverage of choice, facial, traditional beard shaving, and shampooing. A first-time customer can expect to walk into a welcoming, cozy environment where he can find what he needs and feel great about himself.
“Brandon and I have always shared a passion for operating our own business where we could grow within a community we can give back to. The idea of The Dapper Den certainly didn’t develop overnight. Unlike Brandon, I was not raised in LaGrange; however, after becoming familiar with the community and living in LaGrange for over a year, conversations about desiring a store like ours developed between us. We agreed that men like ourselves would appreciate a one-stop shop, particularly on those busy days, where retail and grooming services are provided together with less hassle,” Green said.
The two business partners are not currently hiring, but plan to open their doors in mid-to-late January 2024. They are located at 710 Lincoln Street, LaGrange, Georgia 30240. You can find them on Facebook as The Dapper Den Haberdashery.
