Hello from us all in a currently intermittently sunny Dartmouth in Devon. We still aren’t quite sure where this year has gone, it has literally flown by, and now we are half way through August!
Our HQ team are always extra busy looking for new products and partnerships in order to bring you, our customers, the very best that is available. In fact we know that teamwork is vital in any setting and therefore teaming up with some of the best businesses in the UK makes great business sense.
We have formed some great alliances such as our rather special Jack Speak Rum with Distinctly Different Drinks Co. This Caribbean spiced rum is cut with Devon Spring Water and blended by Distinctly’s master blender Laurence. Of course there was an obligatory trip for Laurence to the islands to taste and whittle down which rums he wanted to blend; to come up with a rum that we know our customers love. We take sourcing new products very seriously indeed. Drink neat over ice with a slice of orange for the perfect tot.
If you like a smart shirt, then you may have noticed we teamed up with Emmett London to produce something that we think is a very special indeed. Emmett London is a Jermyn Street shirt-maker founded by tailor Robert Emmett in 1992. Their first store opened on the Kings Road in 1992, and since then it has opened stores on Eldon Street in the City, Jermyn Street in the West End and Canary Wharf.
With feature port and starboard coloured button holes and J.M.W. Turner's painting of The Battle of Trafalgar under the cuff, these exquisitely made shirts, are hand-made in Italy and exclusive to JackSpeak Nautical Clothing. You can slip one on for a hoofing run ashore, dress it down with shorts or jeans, or fling on with some formal trousers to effortlessly suit any occasion. You won‘t find another shirt like it anywhere. We promise!
Our latest partnership has come to pass after several serious zoom meetings, which have happened with only a few slight hiccups (well maybe more than a few!) which we can definitely blame on Wi-fi connections!
We are delighted to announce we will soon be stocking some exclusive to Jack Speak products with Musto! Musto are an award winning clothing company, engineering technical and exceptional quality outdoor kit covering activities from sail to surf. Founded over 50 years ago, Musto are British through and through, and they, like us, are fanatical about detail and style - which makes the perfect pairing for us. We are super excited, so keep following us to find out what outstanding pieces we have come up with for you; we will be launching them soon.
We hope you are enjoying the summer, even in these difficult times, and that you will visit us in person or virtually very soon to grab your little piece of JackSpeak apparel. Stay safe!
