JackSpeak was developed by a couple of Rugby playing friends whose paths crossed watching the Rugby World Cup in one of Dartmouth's many pubs. Combining a design career and a city background they formed a clothing brand that can be worn to the office, on the yacht or out on 'a hoofing run ashore'.
Living in Dartmouth and surrounded by Naval traditions, the idea was sparked by family connections to the Royal Navy which includes an officer's seamstress at the Britannia Royal Naval College. 25 years experience in graphic design has developed an eye for detail and a nose for style which is reflected in all the products JackSpeak offers.
Why Jack Speak? It is the term for the colourful 'slanguage' used by sailors over the centuries and is a wonderful world of inspiration for a nautical clothing range. This unique colloquial form of communication has it's origins in every corner of the globe and is still very much in use today. Whether you're getting 'ship-shape and Bristol fashion' or are 'cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey' JackSpeak can be heard everywhere.
