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.

Introducing retweed by Harry Bakewell

26 Mar

It’s common knowledge that there is a difference between fashion and style. Fashion is something that people are interested in right now but may not be interested in when we skip forward in time. It might be 10 years before a fashion dies out, it might only be a matter of weeks or months but nevertheless fashion is to put it bluntly, a fad. Style, on the other hand, is something that will always be popular. A good example of this is the Mini Cooper and another good example is a well-tailored Harris tweed jacket. People will want something stylish for the rest of time.

I’m Harry Bakewell, head of graphics, photography and social media at retweed. I’m part of a three man team who have recently started a website selling vintage tweed jackets at affordable prices. We are all students and one Saturday afternoon, while socialising, we got onto the topic of vintage clothing. We all liked the tweed jackets, brogues and other vintage clothing because it could be worn by people of all ages and would always be stylish. The problem for us was that it was so expensive to buy. Any high street retailer sells replicas for £60-£80 and many of the vintage shops or those selling the originals were charging £40-£60 for a Harris tweed jacket which for a student isn’t affordable.  We didn’t think any more of the subject and forgot about it. Well, the rest of us had forgotten about it, Nathan Marshall & Carl Willimott hadn’t though. They had both thought about it significantly after our conversation and decided that they could source some vintage clothing and then sell it to me and our friends, who couldn’t afford the shops prices. This went well and the whole of our friend group ended up wearing tweed jackets to almost every occasion. After the success of this venture they did some research into how popular this clothing was on a countrywide scale and the results were unanimous. People liked vintage.

I was then added to the team to take photos and do any design work, I then offered to do the social media side of the business. Between us, we had a good skill set to go out and make a business to help get vintage clothing out to the people who loved it but just couldn’t afford it. retweed was born.

Our mission is to find out what vintage clothing people want, source this clothing and then sell it to them for a price that is affordable. So if you are reading this and there is something missing from your wardrobe then let us know and we will try to help.

Check out our website www.retweed.co.uk and let us know what you think. We are due to be adding more Harris tweed, Levi jeans, Levi’s womens shorts, Barbour jackets and more as soon as possible so follow us @retweed_cnk to get the latest updates. Thanks for reading.
