High-end men's boutique Cloak & Dapper will soon be closing the doors of its brick and mortar Ivanhoe Village shop.

To Our Orlando Customers & Friends,
Cloak & Dapper’s brick & mortar location in Orlando’s Ivanhoe Village community will be closing it's doors in August.
We are pivoting the brand to online focused shopping, as well as innovating unique pop up retail experiences and events here in Orlando and elsewhere. We are also excited to finally commit more time and creativity to our private label product development in 2017.
We’d like to take this opportunity to give a deep and heartfelt thanks to the friends, family, mentors and community who helped make this shop a reality, and for filling it with so many great memories! Thank you to our loyal customers for shopping with us and for supporting American made products and small business. We hope you’ll continue to do so.
To those we know, and to those we haven’t had the opportunity to meet yet, who have entrepreneurial goals and dreams to shape their own destinies here in Orlando, please don’t let this announcement discourage you. But rather inspire you to reach for the highest rung in all you do. Go big or go home.This is not a period for us, though. It is an ellipses. We are beyond excited to dream it up all over again.
We hope you'll swing back in soon one last time before our Ivanhoe location closes, and lovingly support those who fill it next. Thanks for your support and patronage!
And please continue to shop with us online at Where we’re always open.
