Hackett London traces its roots back 35 years to the hustle and bustle of the Portobello Road market in London’s Notting Hill. It was there that Jeremy Hackett met Ashley Lloyd-Jennings and started selling second-hand vintage British clothes and accessories. Demand soon outstripped supply so Hackett and Lloyd-Jennings began making their own clothes from natural fibres in traditional British styles. From these humble beginnings, via a shop at the wrong end of the King’s Road, Hackett now has over 1,000 points of sale in 65 countries across the world.
Hackett prides itself on providing accessible luxury with the unique Hackett signature. ‘Hackett is a brand that dresses men of all ages,’ says founder and chairman Jeremy Hackett, ‘in a style that is classic but not old-fashioned.’
In June 2019, to mark the 150th anniversary of British Army Polo, Hackett – as its long-term brand partner – launched the SS19 British Army Polo range. To celebrate this milestone Hackett mounted an exhibition at Christie’s curated by Carrie Scott documenting 150 years of the sport. The highlight of the exhibition was a limited-edition collection of specially commissioned photographs by Uli Weber.
Hackett opened its new London store at No.14 Savile Row, giving it a presence on a street whose name is synonymous with fine tailoring the world over
