Time Out are on the case as naming us as their shop of the week. Our flagship store around the corner from Savile Row is causing quite a stir, as we showcase our vibrant new collections to the Mayfair posse.

26 Sackville Street
29th January, 2014
Our new flagship store opened last week at 26 Sackville Street, London, W1 in the heart of London’s famous tailoring community centred on Savile Row. Our reflective urban tweeds and new season designs will continue to push the boundaries of visionary clothing for men within our new store.
The focus of the new store is our ready to wear collection which aims to be the most inventive and highest quality in town. In a unique model we design all our own fabric for use in the collections. This enables unadulterated concepts to be delivered to the store and by using mills and manufacturing in Britain top quality can be assured.

Manufacturing in the UK
19th December, 2013
As we enter the season of mystery and fables we all delight in a united suspension of disbelief. Of course the gifts delivered by Mr Claus are honed by Elves dwelling in the arctic circle, the idea of sweat shops in tropical climes, felling of rain forests or any other connections to Amazon are preposterous.
With Dashing Tweeds you need have no niggles of moral conscience because we can show you evidence of the industrious folk of the north. In fact we have photographs and films of them hard at work merrily producing exquisite creations for the good among you to enjoy.

Screen Printing Dashing Scarves
13th November, 2013
Our latest collection of beautiful silk scarves, designed by Arlette Ess, were screen printed by Allan Williams in Deptford, London.
We were lucky enough to visit them on the day of printing and watch the whole process, and we thought we would share our experience with you.

Life as a grifter has it's dangers as Robert Redford found in The Sting. However if you find yourself as a blagger rather than a banker you might as well look the part. Our bouclé pinstripe stripes are for life on the fringes of the City, and perhaps more amusing than the staid attire of city rogues.
We have two colour-ways of my new suit in the Clerkenwell Stripe, a navy version of the Shoreditch Stripe above. We can send you a swatch sample if you fancy a move with the mob. Certainly puts a spring in the step.

It's Wool Week and we thought we'd show you our film of how wool is transformed into tweed to a soundtrack of sampled looms and finishing machines.

New AW13 Cloth Collection
27th September, 2013
Inspiration came from the paintings of Mark Rothko and the abstract expressionists, we were stimulated by their rich tonal palettes.
A classic lightweight pinstripe was developed with a loop mohair yarn, and flecked colour was explored through the Dashing Donegal tweeds, woven in Ireland by Magee Weaving. Textures of thick paint and brush strokes inspired a paint splash jacquard in a mohair and merino blended yarn and a rubber yarn was also woven with merino in a honey comb structure to create an innovative and exciting new fabric to be used in our AW13 ready to wear collection which will launch in a couple of weeks.
Check out the whole collection here.
