In the 1979 Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings met in the Portobello road, both combining the market for good second-hand traditional British men’s clothing. A business partnership is soon started with their own small stall in Portobello, selling on the clothing after cleaning and repairs. Today Hackett’s new eyewear collections are available globally and are celebrated for their quality and their re-interpretation of British style for today’s gentleman.
Handcrafted from the finest acetates and meticulously tailored for the perfect fit, the Hackett Bespoke collection, designed and distributed by Mondottica, fully embraces the classic aesthetic. Complete with Hackett engraved silver plaque trims to the inside of each temple, the Bespoke eyewear collection appeals to the stylishly dressed man devoted to high quality products.
These bespoke frames are offered in a mix of sizes for the refined man; from modern combination styles with a nod to the vintage silhouette as seen in *HEB130*, to thin profiles and rich acetates in *HEB131* with tortoiseshell highlights and signature H logo. The new season’s handmade acetates in *HEB132* features bevel cut temples to reveal rich triple layered colours.
