New Summer Cloth Collection
24th March, 2014
As the sun comes out and sweet peas are ripe you know its time for summer stripes. No British summer is complete without stripes, from deck chairs to regattas and cricketing blazers to tennis chalk lines you cannot fault stripey togs. With this in mind our cloth collection explores the lines of summer in traditional and new ways.
Seersucker has been a staple of summer wardrobes since colonial times. Some say this light weight puckered cotton cloth is named after the appearance of Hindustani rice pudding and sugar “kheer aur shakkar” if you fancy ordering some in Delhi. We bring you a very tasty seersucker with flashes of neon green and fluro yellow equally at home on the verges of Henley as on the verge of euphoria.
As the arcadian fields of England are not complete without sheep so our collection is wanting without wool. We have two exciting wool stripes for you both ideal for a sporting blazer, the Classic Club Stripe in pure light weight Merino and our more beguiling Shimmering Club Stripe. This combines the allure of lurex with the luxury of wool to create a fabric which clamours for the glamours of rock.
A day at the races completes our summer collection. Here our stripes take inspiration from speeding jockeys, the racing tears apart the lines with jacquard woven cotton warps skipping beats along the course of our design.
Our zeal of stripes are now ready for you to buy. Stow away your old strip; strike out in our stripes. Check out the full collection here.

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.
