We’ve created a limited line of T-Shirts and Men’s Boxers together with two of Stockholms most iconic Boxing clubs A.I.F and Tensta Boxing. These gyms have brought purpose to the lives of countless marginalized youth by giving them a sense of belonging and teaching the importance of hard work and respect. They are also one of the few places where people meet on equal terms in spite of socioeconomic background, gender, age or sexual preference. We support that.
Ever been to Hawaii?...Yeah neither have we, but let’s not get too depressed about that! Since you’re dealing with professional dreamers we’ve come up with the second best thing, something inspired by the surroundings closer to home yet still filled with a healthy dose of sunshine, we call it the Swewaii.
The range includes of a 2-pack cotton boxer, a pair of swimshorts and a beach bag.
This season Frank Dandy joins forces with the Non-Violence Movement in a joint effort to make the world a more colourful and peaceful place to live.
The Non-Violence Movement is a brand aimed to increase awareness and create revenue for the Non-Violence Project - a non-profit, non-political independent organization teaching young people how to solve conflicts peacefully. Since it’s founding in 1993 they have reached over 6 million people and their work has been awarded på heads of state and notable institutions across the world.
For the Fall 15 collection we have created a range of products sure to raise some eyebrows and spirits. A portion of the proceeds go directly towards helping the project in their quest for a non-violent world.

-Here's Frank's top 5 favourite beaches in Europe for you!
1. Turkey: Butterfly Valley, Fethiye
This beach is not for the couch potato, you either trekk here in the mountains (about an hour each way) or you get here by boat. But it sure is worth the trouble! This beach has no electricity, water scooter rental or other nonsense, just sand, water and total bliss (and a laid back hippie-style restaurant, no need to starve).
2. France: La Côte des Basques, Biarritz
This untamed yet exclusive beach has been a popular surfing spot since the 50's, and still is! The bars and restaurants surrounding the beach serves tired sunbathers and surfers great cocktails in a relaxed surfer friendly establishments.
3. Spain: Playa de ses Illetes, Formentera
White sand and crystal clear water on each side of the beach. This place is magic! However avoid it during tourist season, the best time to visit this little piece of heaven on earth is in September. And be sure to not miss the fantastic sunset!
4. Greece: Myrtos Beach, Kefalonia
One of the most beautiful beaches in the world for sure, this is a must for anyone planning a trip to Greece this summer (if you weren't already planning one, maybe you should start doing so right now!). Hidden at the bottom of a steep mountain, this beach feels like a hidden treasure to any visitor. This beach has been voted best beach in Greece 12 times, go see why!
5. Portugal: Falesia Beach, Albufeira
The white sand stretches for several kilometers with beautiful red cliffs making it look almost surreal. This beach is truly original and has all amenities you could ever wish for, without loosing it's untamed flair. If you can muster the energy needed to walk some few hundred metres away from the contact points you can also enjoy a bit of privacy.
The shop is adjacent to the company's new office and showroom on Västmannagatan 47 in Stockholm.
We are pleased that we have found a location where we combine our daily core business of offering consumers the ability to purchase our products in a natural pure Frank Dandy store. This physical area gives us another platform to showcase our whole concept.
We are thrilled to present Graphic Designer/Illustrator Martin Ander aka 'Mander' as one of our print contributors for the FALL 2012 line.
With an aesthetic deeply rooted in graffiti and skateboard culture "Mander" creates art with the sensibility of a true craftsman. His art often incorporates clues to his references or subject matter, much like the works of his predecessors and common sources of inspiration; Rick Griffin, Jim Phillips and Hans Arnold.
His work has been featured in a number of books and publications and now also on our underwear!
