Jeremy Hackett is a British fashion designer and business executive best known for his classic British menswear company, Hackett.

Early life[edit]

Hackett was brought up and educated in Clifton, Bristol. Having left school at 17 he started full-time work in a local men’s fashion shop. Within a year he moved to London and worked in the fashionable King's Road before accepting a position as a salesman at a tailor's shop on Savile Row. As a sideline he bought and sold second hand clothes purchased from the London street markets and, through this, met up with Ashley Lloyd-Jennings, who shared similar tastes in fashion. Between them they opened Hackett's first store on the King's Road, London.[1]

Today[edit]

Hackett quickly grew and leading to Jeremy being well known as an authority on men's fashion particularly in classic style.

In 2007, his book 'Mr Classic' - an anecdotal, incisive, critique of men’s style - was released. The book was well received; bloggers' and critics' reactions were mostly positive.[2] Men’s Health said that “For the man of 2008 who can see that the devil is in the detail, this book is indispensable" [3] Men's fashion blog The Luxist proclaimed it "a must-have for any man who takes sartorial matters seriously." [4]

Using online media, Jeremy continues to offer his style advice through the 'Ask Jeremy' portal on the Hackett website.[5]
