Hackett London

Hackett London

Many believe Hackett London to be a label generations older than it actually is. This wonderful sense of heritage and cosy familiarity combine with extraordinary practices in tailoring to create a brand that every man will benefit from having in his wardrobe.

Founded in 1979 by second-hand traditional menswear fans Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings, Hackett was soon to become one of the market’s most authentic menswear brands. It began life as a second-hands store, but branched out into new manufacture by 1985.

In 1987, two army officers approached Hackett for sponsorship, and the Hackett Polo Team was formed. The sportswear line was born at this point, and the team shirts were so popular that they sold out.

By 1988, Hackett London had adopted the strapline ‘Essential British Kit’, summarising its everyday and quintessentially British personality. Success kept coming, and in 1995, the brand started to manufacture its classic suiting, jumpers and more for children.

Famous for its tweeds, Hackett collaborated with Horse and Hound magazine in 1999 to create its most enduring design to date: a tweed with a green base and red overcheck.

This affinity with sport continues to this day, as the label is proud sponsor of the Oxford and Cambrige Boat Race and has worked in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing.
