Empowering Change: The Impact of Supporting Charities with a Generous Spirit

Updated: Dec 2, 2023

Welcome to this month's blog!


There has certainly been a lot going on since our last post and now we are in November that marks the transition from Autumn to Winter. The days become shorter, and temperatures generally get colder as the season changes.

November is associated with two zodiac signs; Scorpio covers the majority of the month till 21st and and then Sagittarius. Rob has his birthday on 17th November which he proudly shares with Ru Paul!

Movember is an annual event in which men grow moustaches during November to raise awareness for men's health issues, particularly prostate and testicular cancer.

These are just some general aspects of the month of November. The significance and experience of November can vary greatly depending on where you are in the world and your cultural or personal traditions.

Dapper & Suave - 8th Birthday

We are excited to say that this month Dapper & Suave is 8 years old and from that first comment from our best mate Gav to compliment us about how Dapper & Suave we looked and the rest is history.

Self taught from the start, it began with our lapel flowers, then pocket squares, bowties, ties and later cravats and hit the wedding market and have been on a great journey with wedding events, photoshoots where we get to be stylists as well as makers.

Looking back through our earlier blog it's exciting to see how we were able to adapt our business, to bring new products into the range and now to focus back on our core range, still with our handwriting of colour, pattern and positivity.

Everything we have learned and experienced strong informs our ability to help small businesses with our Curated by Dapper & Suave events.

We will share on Instagram our journey of the last 8 years

Poem - by Jennai Cox

As you know when you visit our FREE events we have our team either Jason , Gary or Jennai to meet and greet and so many customers have got to know them as well.

We gave Jennai the challenge to write a poem as always found it hard to rhyme something with Suave and of course this was no problem ... enjoy.

Thanks for reading and hope to see you for the festive season.

There are some great things planned for 2024 which we will share with you very soon. Jason & Rob
