We are Rob & Jason and we set up Dapper & Suave in 2015.
We make and sell a range of suit accessories where colour, passion and positivity are the heart of our designs.
We started life as a style blog, mixing vintage with high street, before moving into lapel accessories and then teaching ourselves to sew our first pocket squares.
Since then the range has expanded to include bow ties, neck ties and feather lapel accessories. We even use the last of the fabric to make scrunchies so we have something for everyone.
We set up Curated by Dapper & Suave in 2017 to provide support to other small businesses and give a platform to shine in events we're proud to be a part of.
Think of Dapper & Suave as the anchor brand in a pop up department store, surrounded by brands that fit our ethos, where you will find favourites and new brands as a first time or repeat visitors to our events.
