Men’s Folio : Meeting Mr. Classic

Covered | 28 April 2014

The self-styled “Mr Classic” – who published a book of whimsical comments on the British male’s sartorial habits – serves as the driving force behind the officer-and-gentleman appeal of his eponymous brand, often acting as ambassador to many of the events held across the globe, including the recent launch of the first Hackett standalone in Singapore. Located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, the Hackett flagship is an imposing retail space spread over five rooms, with the iconic bowler-and-umbrella logo sprawled across its facade. Focusing not only on tailoring but also the upper-crust masculine world of polo and motor racing, the outfitter houses a whole range of Hackett’s collections set in the atmosphere of a gentlemen’s club – a reflection of both brand and founder’s shared identity.
