Great article from a fab brand!

juniperandjane

The stunning Scottish countryside and our natural heritage inspires our ideas and designs, so where better to visit than the island of Lewis & Harris in the Outer Hebrides. We spent an amazing 4 days there taking in as much as we could of the islands, the culture and the cloth they produce that we love so much, Harris Tweed. We have tried to put our trip into words and pictures but only seeing it with your own eyes can really do it justice!

Robinson & Dapper by Sarah Robinson

22 May

I’ve been living in Denmark for a few years now.  Fashion and design are a huge part of the culture over here and when I moved here I was immediately entranced by their Scandinavian style.

Being Scottish, I’ve grown up around men wearing kilts, tweed blazers and wool suits, so I have a real appreciation for good quality wool fabrics.  I’ve always appreciated a man who makes an effort to look dapper and was very enthusiastic when my male friends and colleagues began to sport a variety of neckwear; wool bow ties in particular.

However there was one thing which kept nagging at me.  Whenever I inquired about their latest extravagant woolly buy, the only thing could tell me about it, was the name of the very fashionable shop in which they had bought it.  On closer inspection, I began to see a trend of quite costly accessories, with no story, of pretty average to poor quality wool fabric.

I became quite frustrated, thinking of all of the beautiful tweeds being produced at home in Scotland and imagined how much more luxurious and special the ties would be in these fabrics.  It wasn’t that my friends’ purchases were bad, it was more that I knew they could be so much better!

This is how Robinson & Dapper was born.  A few months ago, I began creating handmade bow ties, neck ties and pocket squares from fabrics sourced from historic Scottish mills.  The concept is the juxtaposition of old and new – using high quality, traditional materials yet still achieving a relevant, current look.  The aim being to elevate the modern look of the urban, dapper gentleman by fusing it with classic, luxury fabrics.

Each Robinson & Dapper product is an individual, carefully handcrafted item.  The exclusive fabrics have been specially selected to fulfill both aspects of the concept – they are fashion-forward, whilst being woven using traditional methods in Scotland – the home of tweed and woven wool fabrics.

 I’m extremely proud to see the response of my customers to these accessories.  Many people are genuinely surprised to see and feel the quality of tweed which has actually been woven in Scotland from Scottish wool!  Buying a Robinson & Dapper product is not only about treating yourself to a great-looking, handcrafted bow tie or pocket square.  Here you are getting quality items of historic origin, with a story, which have been made using some of the most beautiful, traditional fabrics available in the world today.

 Check out our website www.robinsonanddapper.com and please share with any dapper gentlemen you know!  So far we are only selling our bow ties on here, but our range of skinny neck ties and pocket squares will be added soon.  Thanks.
