This season’s Men’s Tailoring campaign features Daniel “Dapper Dan” Day, a famous fashion designer from Harlem whose customized creations were popular with the stars in the 80s and 90s before the closing of his eponymous boutique.
This fascinating series of portraits reflects Dapper Dan’s confidence and celebrates his cultural heritage by photographing him in familiar places in his neighborhood of Harlem.
In the portfolio of images captured by photographer Glen Luchford, one discovers
