Today I wanted to give a big shout out to our fab directory members, Dapper & Suave. Rob and Jason provide all important gents accessories such as pocket squares, bow ties and lapel pins. They have a vast array of colours and patterns, so there’s sure to be something to suit your style. They boast florals, nauticals, paisley, vintage, check, flamingos, robots, parrots and more!
They even make doggy bandanas! Why shouldn’t our canine friends get in on the dressing up fun?
Last month they launched some new products so I wanted to share some of my faves:
So there you have it. All handmade in Dorking, Surrey. A fresh cherry blossom print that works well with navy and grey jackets. The red nautical print gives a classic look when paired with a navy blazer and a white shirt. I love the floral pocket square with the wine-coloured background (the boys suggest this would work with a navy, black or grey jacket). They added the sage green paisley print as their tan, pink and black version was such a hit. The retro robots print is so much fun for children and big kids alike! Very quirky and cool.
Dapper & Suave have also launched their first ever beard oil! Rosemary, lime and mandarin. Gotta smell good for that first kiss. This sounds so fresh and sophisticated.
As well as these new products, I wanted to share some old favourites such as this original vintage bow ties (circa 1960s-1970s). Vintage bow ties are generally larger than modern ones and give a more ‘floppy’ look.
Lapel pin made with pheasant feathers and twine, and the yellow lapel pin that was featured in GQ magazine! Check out their other citrus-inspired colours, we love the orange and lime too.
It looks like Rob & Jason have been busy working on a new shoot too… oooh looks awesome. Can’t wait to see what that’s all about!
