Home to authentic British style, menswear brand Hackett is inspired by a traditional British approach combined with their own ability to keep things fresh and modern.
After meeting his business partner Ashley Lloyd-Jennings in 1979, Jeremy Hackett set up a stall on London’s Portobello Market where together they sold second-hand men’s clothing which they had repaired using Jeremy’s Saville Row experience. But it seemed demand exceeded supplies and so the pair began to design and manufacture their own clothing to complement that of the traditional second-hand styles.
Combining the tastes of a traditional country gent with the modern day city dweller, Hackett produces high quality clothing with a focus on timeless style. The distinctive colours and styling of the famous tshirts, jumpers and jackets have made Hackett a leader in British fashion. Their long running “Essential British Kit” advertising concept sums up Hackett’s origins and beliefs.
Famous for its sporting links, Hackett is a favourite among F1 drivers, tennis players and other sporting stars and has also been worn by John Hurt, Colin Farrell and Cuba Gooding Jnr.
