‘ello Guvnor! BFOC Presents Dallas’ First Tweed Ride, Nov. 22nd 3:30PM

Don your best pantaloons, knickers, argyle socks, and two-wheeler, then make haste to the Grassy Knoll as BFOC presents Dallas’ first tweed ride, November 22nd at 3:30PM. For a taste of what is in store and for apparel ideas, view the galleries of the original New York Tweed Ride, and San Francisco Tweed Ride.

Prepare to look dapper as we pedal the streets of Downtown Dallas, and stop for a pint or spot of tea at a local tavern of our choosing. Bells and baskets are encouraged, a good pipe is always favorable, keep your cameras at the ready, and wear plenty of tweed. All are welcome, even those who don’t dress the part. This is a chance to even bring along dear old mum, It should be a smashing time for all! We’ve setup a Facebook event page here as well. There will also be awards given to the most dapper lad and lass.

If we’re lucky, maybe Jeremy over at the OCBC Shoppe will arrive on one of his handmade British Pashley’s:
