Started in 1979 by Jeremy Hackett, his eponymous brand has a classic, timeless appeal that makes it feel as though it’s been around much longer than its almost 40 years. The first store opened on Parson’s Green in London selling fine quality second-hand traditional British clothing and accessories. From there, the company has grown into an internationally respected retailer of mens sportswear, refined tweeds and more contemporary silhouettes.
‘When customers ask me how old Hackett is, they are always surprised, believing that it was started by my Father or even Grandfather. They seem to think it has been around forever, and I like that. For me it shows that there is real acceptance for the brand and it’s not just a passing fad. Hackett is a brand that is truly British and has an authenticity and integrity that belies its years.’
