Hackett London A/W 2015
Three years ago, Hackett London in association with Fox Brothers & Co invested in a flock of Wensleydale sheep in Somerset, South-West England. The sheep’s fleeces have now matured and have been woven to produce Hackett’s exclusive own fabric seen in the finale three piece suit.
The traditional flannel suit is shown in a mixture of grey and navy with contrasting pockets and elbow patches. In line with Hackett’s support of the wool industry and British cloth, outerwear pieces are heavy in sheepskin and given a military tone that includes a reversible sheepskin coat, reefer jacket and a double breasted military coat.
I love how Jeremy Hackett just sticks to the roots of classic British tailoring and gives a subtle twist without over-powering or modernizing too much.
