Head to Hackett on Regent Street to find everything a gentleman could need to fit out his wardrobe at their largest store in the world. The three-storey space houses ready-to-wear, accessories (including some limited-edition pieces exclusive to this branch) and a bespoke tailoring service in its suiting space. There’s also a collection for boys starting at age two and going up to age 16 for stylish father/son dressing.
The label’s founder, Jeremy Hackett started his career in menswear on the world-famous Savile Row and in the 1980s opened a store selling vintage British menswear. Due to its huge popularity, and unable to meet the demand for the vintage look, he began making his own clothing and accessories inspired by classic styles. The brand’s design philosophy is epitomised by its bowler hat and umbrellas logo. Hackett’s encyclopaedic knowledge of British tailoring, its history and what customers want has helped grow the business into a worldwide success, offering elegant menswear for a modern audience at attainable prices. They’ve also forged partnerships over the years with many other like-minded entities including Aston Martin, Henley Royal Regatta and British Army Polo.
This flagship branch is not only home to a range of dapper menswear but also an on-site bar which makes this store feel more like a gentleman’s club. The décor reflects this too with comfy carpeted areas with lounge chairs, taxidermy and a wrought iron staircase. Each area is themed around the products representing different aspects of the gentlemanly lifestyle from tailoring to country pursuits and family time.
