Dior Homme Fragrance History

Mr. Jackson

Peter Jackson has been a part of Melbourne's style heritage since 1948. The namesake company of this iconic menswear designer has become a stalwart of the city’s retail landscape, with a reputation for outfitting some of this city's most notable men for over half a century.

We all know that life as a fashion retailer is not an easy venture, and the company, now run by Paul Jackson, has not only survived, but thrived through several decades that we can all agree threw up some pretty dubious trends by sticking to their ethos of offering classic suiting at an exceptional price point. It's a similar ethos to the one that I hold here at A Poor Man's Millions and when the company approached me to road test their new collection I jumped at the opportunity to experience one of this country's most renowned menswear brands. 

With locations across Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, including an additional eight stores opening in 2015, Peter Jackson is now revisiting the basic traditions of menswear design with a strong focus on cut and fabrics for its new AW 2015 campaign.

The company sources fabrics from European mills as well as using super fine Australian Merino wools in their suiting. With 100% Egyptian/European cotton for shirting and Italian/German silk for ties, they have kept their quality high and prices affordable. With traits of tradition and innovation alike, the new collection offers a timeless and confident look.
