Seven Days of Dapper: T Sweatt

You know it. You love it. It’s Seven Days of Dapper, back this time with a special treat for you: the dashing Maine stylings of T Sweatt. Here are T’s stats:

T. Sweatt, originally from Connecticut and now a Maine import, has been summering in Maine her entire life. After college, the Maine coast and woodlands proved too strong to move away from. Growing up on the water and playing in the woods have had a great influence on her style. She spent seven years helping to run Rogues Gallery, a menswear company based out of Portland, Maine. RG’s rustic, nautical feel played an integral part in T’s style.

T’s style advice: Be comfortable in what you wear, don’t be afraid to get it dirty, it’s all about the accessories and attitude.

  • Fantastic! Love T’s outfits — as someone on the bigger side, seeing larger butches is really encouraging and inspirational. So much personality comes through in these photos, too, I love it. T rocks!

  • I love this so much!! As the previous commenter said, it’s really encouraging to see larger butches highlighted in such a positive way. Thank you for the boost of self-confidence these gave me (T looks like me!) and for sharing the awesomeness of her through these pics. Gotta say, I’m TOTALLY stealing some of these outfits!

  • T is my big sister. She has always had her own style growing up in a small town in CT. After becoming a Maine resident she has and always have her own style, which I can say that rubbed off on me. She is never one to follow the trends she makes her own trends. She is such a great person, older sister to me, daughter and the best Aunt to my little one (Finley 15 months). Much love to T and her styles from her little (larger tall) brother.
