However, there was a decrease in his fortune later as the company didn't survive. After 25 years, he got back in business launching new Boutique partnering with Gucci on Lenox Avenue. The boutique helped in sustaining the wealth. As of now, he along with his son Jelani Day is working on his company Dapper Dan of Harlem. He indeed is enjoying the luxurious lifestyle.

Alongside his career, he has earned a considerable amount of wealth from his book deal with Random House and a movie deal with Sony Pictures. 

Before Dapper built an empire in fashion, he generated his fortune as a professional gambler. Further, with the help of the money he gained from gambling, he started his career selling clothes on a table on the sidewalks of Harlem.
