Dashing tweeds offer a more contemporary look for your Autumn Jacket
Fashion photographer Guy Hills launched British brand Dashing Tweeds in 2006 with the talented woven textiles designer Kirsty McDougall. Guy was looking to create a British high quality modern tweed that could be worn in the city. His passion was to combine traditional sportswear with new designs and technical yarns.
Guy and Kirsty set up their weave design studio in East London, using the best mills in the country to weave their high luxury woven designs.
With the cloths instant success amongst Savile Row tailors, the Dashing Tweeds Flagship store opened in 2014 in Mayfair, and then moved to Marylebone in 2018.
Tweed is the original sportswear fabric of Great Britain. It is made of woven wool and is traditionally the way men have worn colours, patterns and texture whilst enjoying themselves in pastimes and country pursuits.
Dashing Tweeds is modernising the cloth by working with technical yarns in combination with wools. We are bringing tweed to town as more people now live in the city and by combining modern sportswear with the traditional we are creating a whole new concept in tailored wear.
