Hackett was founded in 1979 in London by Jeremy Hackett and his partner, Ashley Lloyd-Jennings. Starting with a small market stall selling second-hand traditional British men’s clothing it became apparent that market demand exceeded the supply of quality second-hand clothing. The answer was to manufacture from new, to complement the second-hand offering. Starting from scratch but working with traditional manufacturers, they are able to create their ideal range of clothing and accessories based on their extensive knowledge of British men’s style. After repeated requests from customers to make clothes for children just like Daddy’s, Hackett produces its first range for “Essential British Kids”. Hackett opened in Egypt in 2014.
