Hackett London is a brand with a long-standing history behind its name. The luxury menswear
label was founded in 1979 by two friends, Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings, who met while shopping for second-hand classic British fashion in London’s Portobello Market. The two successfully began selling vintage menswear as vendors in the same market, and opened their own Hackett standalone store on London’s New Kings Road four years later. In 1985 they finally began selling their own creations, and today the brand is comprised of six lines— including menswear, formal knit, tailoring, eyewear, accessories and even children’s wear.
