Founded 1979 in United Kingdom
Based in London

In 1979, Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings meet on Portobello Road, with a shared love of second-hand traditional British men's clothing. A business partnership is soon started. The pair open their first store under the name 'Hackett' in Parson's Green, London in 1983; selling fine quality second-hand traditional British clothing and accessories.

Today, they still manufacture shoes and clothes with the same precise craftsmanship and exquisite detail as 'Hackett' has always represented.
