At the end of September we had the great privilege of being part of the yearly Best of Britannia event in Bloomsbury square London. BOB is an exhibition set up purely to champion British brands and British industries, the event had a real mix of traditional heritage and classic British style as well as a modern edge- cool venue, new brands and a fantastic atmosphere.

As lovely as the summer has been we are now approaching Autumn and that makes us think (amongst other Autumnal things) of knitted ties! Of course you can wear them all year round…

At Dancys we’ve decided to incorporate the ever versatile Paisley print into our next collection which launches next month. We’ve picked four delectable styles in a mature colour palette and can’t wait to see what you think.

It’s been a while since there’s been an exciting menswear exhibition on in one of London’s galleries, but The Photographers Gallery has come up trumps with its photography exhibition entitled ‘Made you look; Dandyism & Black Masculinity’, described as “A group exhibition exploring the identity of the black dandy as performed in studio and street photographers from London to New York to Bamako”.

We love socks. Especially British made ones. They brighten up your outfit, make perfect gifts, add a splash of colour and bring a hidden hint of extra style to your day.

Here at Dancys we have a huge appreciation for William Morris. Who doesn’t? And if you don’t yet you really should. What’s not to love? The design, the patterns, the colours, the man himself… probably the most influential print designer of all time.

Whilst on the Italy adventure we had the opportunity to spend some time with an Italian fabric supplier who not only sell the most incredible fabrics in Florence but also produce their own range of men’s accessories – mainly bow-ties and pocket squares, all lovingly handmade.

Dancys enjoyed a nice relocation recently to the beautiful and historic city of Florence. The perfect place for inspiration! Whether that came through architecture, street life, Italian fashion, beautifully patterned ceilings, doors and floors there was plenty to choose from!

Dancys ties, bow ties and pocket squares are all made in England by our trusted manufacturer based in Kent. They are really lovely people who do a great job for us, but unfortunately, like all good things they are in high demand, and as a result are fully booked for the next couple of months.

It’s been a while since we kept on top of our blog, but we’ve turned a new leaf and want to keep you informed of our plans and developments here at Dancys.

Dancys has always had a clear sense of gentlemanly behaviour. You don’t have to be old-worldly, old-fashioned or old… but there is an element of smartness, of dandyness, of quirkyness even, and we kind of like that.

The idea to set up a small British menswear brand began a long time ago when Dancys “creative director” (we like to use these big names!) was studying menswear design at university. There was much less colour on the menswear scene then so it didn’t take much for the brand leading the way with colour to make an impact.

Our beautiful ties, bow ties and pocket squares arrived a couple of weeks ago and while they have been sitting patiently in boxes in Dancys HQ, we have been getting ready for the photo shoots.

From the beginning we knew we wanted to keep an authentic Britishness to both our design and manufacture. Not only because our ties, bow ties and pocket squares are traditionally associated with gentlemen and being dapper and is therefore very ‘British’, but also because we felt it was important as a new company to support British industries and that it was something our customer would value and appreciate (as we do!).

Our design space currently consists of a desk, a laptop and a giant sized pin-board overflowing with imagery, drawings and inspiration. There is a variety of fabric samples hanging up and a bunch of post-it notes on the wall to remind us of things we need to do!

Dancys is slowly and surely coming along. We have the stock and are eagerly anticipating our photo shoot, in the meantime we are trying to organise other important matters such as our packaging.
