New Space: Hackett in Spitalfields

As the sartorial look becomes more and more widely appreciated and affordable for young pretenders, dapper chaps and sartorially savvy types alike, quintessential British men’s outfitters Hackett make a timely move to Spitalfields. Their new concept store seamlessly infuses all their best bits – from impeccable tailoring to collegiate inspired separates in this “one-stop” shop.

Staffed by selected individuals, who are locally based and could be best described as friendly extensions of the brand, epitomise the modern man-about-town. The store itself houses uniquely selected and merchandised clothes with exclusive products as well as a barber station courtesy of Murdock London.

 In the lower ground floor you can find a billiards table and vintage leather furnishings where gents can relax during or after your purchases. The consideration and attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of the shop, such as oversized luggage trunks acting as display wardrobes and fitting room curtains created from Hackett tweeds, best reflect Hackett’s distinctive blend of tradition and modernity.

 This strategy of offering a luxurious yet honest shopping experience to the fashion-forward customer is a positive one. We certainly appreciate the focus on the ‘experience’ element – The new space offers a great sanctom for wise folks to engage in a mixture of gentlemanly discussion.
