Harlem fashion icon, Dapper Dan took to Instagram to announce his new collaboration with GAP. Dan is a trailblazer and has been making history in the fashion world for decades. It’s safe to say the 77-year-old legend is not finished.

Comments Off on Dapper Dan Makes History With GAP Partnership, New Hoodie Sold Out In Less Than 60 Seconds

Following his partnership with Gucci in 2017, Dan linked up with GAP for a new partnership venture. 

The icon has now made history as the first designer to have his name on the ‘exclusive’ hoodie. The hoodie is a spin on the classic GAP logo hoodie. Instead of “GAP”, it reads
“DAP” in reference to Dapper Dan. 

On Instagram, Dapper Dan wrote:

“At 4pm today, history will be made again! From a Harlem hood to a GAP hoodie, the first designer to ever have his name on a GAP hoodie. DAP X GAP will be available for you all at 4pm EST on gap.com. Be sure to catch the wave!!”

Trendsetters caught the wave, and by 4:01 pm all hoodies were sold out. This left many buyers upset at how quickly the item sold out. One buyer took to Twitter and said:

“Did I just set my alarm so I can get that Dapper Dan X GAP hoodie?! Yes I did.” 

GAP made it known the hoodie inventory is limited. However, considering this collaboration is a first, GAP should have definitely made more hoodies.

Meanwhile, a buyer took to GAP’s Instagram and said: “Ain’t no way this sold out before it was even listed on the site.”

Hopefully, GAP sees the numbers in sales and re-release the exclusive hoodie.
