Dapper Dan

An especially well-dressed and well-groomed man. My dad has always been a dapper dan. I used to get made fun of in school because he'd always be dressed in a three-piece suit when he picked me up. My sisters call me Dapper Dan just because I like to make sure my hair is styled perfectly each morning.
