I recently visited the new Marylebone outpost of Dashing Tweeds – the specialist clothmaker that also sells ready-to-wear and made-to-measure tailoring – to find some smashing new in-house fabrics awash with colour and pattern. A large-scale glen check with green, magenta and neutral tones works well for a grand summer three‑piece suit (£1,350), while a graphic lightweight merino is used for a single-breasted, wide-leg trouser suit (£1,150). The store also creates made‑to-measure shorts (from £425), available with any combination of pleats, side adjusters and belt loops – founder Guy Hill’s personal pair are wide‑cut with turn-ups finishing at the knee.
