The best of Jacket Required

This July saw the a welcome return to Jacket Required – the London based trade show demonstrating the very best of brands in menswear.

Amongst the midst of journalists, bloggers and buyers stood stand after stand of high quality collections from across the globe. From well-known menswear maestro Mark McNairy to overseas visitor Shipley & Halmos, spectators were treated to something truly spectacular.

Below are some of our favourites:

With a design aesthetic rooted in traditional Scandinavian craftsmanship, the brands latest collection for summer 2013 features a selection of printed shirts, monochrome accessories, and a whole host of beautifully crafted footwear.


A brand energised by individuality and character, Triwa have certainly stuck to their roots with their latest spring/summer ’13 collection. Watches were featured in bright summery colours and played with natural leather, milky white acetate and stainless steel detailing.

To compensate for the unpredictable British summer, they have also produced a three-piece collection of monochrome, cloud and blue wristwear.


Soulland’s head designer, Silas Adler, founded the brand in 2002 and what started as a small company specialising in printed t-shirts has now grown into a well-established menswear label represented in stores across the world.

Shipley & Halmos

Shipley & Halmos is a New York City based creative brand founded by award-winning designers Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos. Through a variety of internal divisions, the company produces a range of men’s clothing, footwear and accessories.

Making their European debut at this year’s show, the Americans certainly showed no signs of being the newcomer. The collection featured a selection of playful pieces – including patterned shirts, varsity jackets and nautical jumpers.
