n 1979 Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings founded a partnership rooted within their love of traditional British men’s clothing. Three decades later amidst the growth of an internationally renowned clothing brand,HACKETT has become a mainstay in the vernacular of fashion aficionados the world around. Upholding to the brand’s tenet for traditional British wear, Hackett’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection presents a versatile selection comprised of classic suits, polos, chinos, jeans, and shorts in a number of variations for the upcoming season. Always impressive to see brands who maintain a devotion to timeless fashion rather than pandering to fads of the moment.
With the versatility of being able to be worn with chinos, jeans as well as shorts, the polo shirt (in this case the Hackett polo) should have a special place in the Spring/Summer wardrobe of men everywhere.
I have decided since the selection is particularly admirable this season, I would show off the Hackett polo shirt in as many permutations as I felt necessary to adequately represent the Spring/Summer offering (and there are still some I haven’t shown!).
From the men’s plain polo shirts which comprise the H shield and Mayfair logo polos to the numbered and sponsorship/event models, Hackett has assembled so many interesting variations that your only issue will be how to choose.
Hackett York, Essential British Kit with a worldwide reputation for quality, luxury designer clothing for men and ever popular Little Britons Clothing Collection for children including a range of quality accessories. Available for sale in our Robert Smart and Robert Smart Clothing shops
Hackett is a classic British clothing and accessories brand which caters for the head to toe needs of men of all ages who wish to dress stylishly and to whom quality is more important than the vagaries of fashion.
Hackett takes its inspiration from the traditions of British dress without being old fashioned and as such its products are evolutionary rather than revolutionary.
Parts of the range are much the same as they were twenty years ago, but as Jeremy Hackett says, “our clothes wear in not out”.
Hackett’s aim is to dress men for any occasion whether it is business, formal, country or sporting and it is perfectly encapsulated under the strap-line Essential British Kit.
Hackett’s ’Little Britons’ range increasingly caters for the younger “man’s” needs.
