What does "DAPPER" means, Fleur? In Dutch it means "BRAVE" ;-) Maybe you have to be brave to enter this Barbershop? ;-)

Annamaria, dapper can mean stylish or well groomed. I remember a song about Dapper Dan, a fellow who was a handsome and well dressed man.

The song I was thinking of is "It's gonna work out fine" by Manfred Mann.

Darling, I've been to see the preacher man
Darling, I've started makin' wedding plans, oh, yeah

If your love is half as true
As the love I offer you
Oh, darling, I think it's gonna work out fine
And I've got to tell you

Darling, You're startin' to get next to me
Baby, I'd better let the distance be
I think I'd better

Your lips set my soul on fire
Don't you see you're my one desire
Oh, dsrling, I think it's gonna work out fine

(I think it's gonna work out fine)
Don't you see it will
(I think it's gonna work out fine)
It's gonna work out fine
(I think it's gonna work out fine)
Oh, yeah
I'm so glad that you're mine, oh, mine

Remember, you used to call me Dapper Dan
That was in the good old days
The thriller, the ever rated lovin' man

Whole lots of girls used to be my speed
Now, pretty baby, you're all I need
Oh, darling, I know it's gonna work out fine

Don't you see, darling
I know it's gonna work out fine
Let me tell you, baby
I know it's gonna work out fine

So-o-o-o-o, fi-i-ine
