Hackett – A British Fashion Institution
It’s time to give your SS16 wardrobe that much needed overhaul and what better way to start than with our go to designer brand, Hackett London. This British designer brand is a firm staple in our everyday essentials and can you blame us? Designed to stand the test of time, our range of Hackett polo shirts, shirts and trousers are exceptionally crafted for that everyday wardrobe.
Established in 1979 on Portobello Road, Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings originally started their business by sourcing vintage menswear clothing, cleaning and repairing them ready to sell on their market stall. Further into the brand’s success in 1987, Hackett sponsored a polo team upon the request of two army officers – as a result of this the Hackett Polo Team was formed, playing out of Guards Polo Club.
It didn’t take long for their sporting attire to gain popularity, enabling the clothing to be spotted off the polo lawn as well as on it.
Due to their original sportswear popularity, the Hackett London Classic Polo Shirt is still an iconic piece if you’re looking to invest in the brand. This classic pique polo features simple yet effective embroidered branding details and a two button placket.
If navy isn’t your colour then don’t despair here at Stuarts London we also stock a variety of Hackett polo shirts.
Over the years the brand has seen many famous faces on the front line of their advertising campaigns; a few include Jonny Wilkinson and Pierce Brosnan. To date the brand is the official clothing partner of Aston Martin, a label synonymous with exceptional British style. So whether you see yourself as the ‘English Gentleman’ or the ‘Leading Man’ we will leave you to decide!
