Luxury British menswear brand Hackett London has partnered with The Henley Royal Regatta, becoming the ‘Official Clothing Partner’ for 2017, and the first ever in its history.
The Henley Regatta is one of the world’s most notable and prestigious rowing events, held annually in Henley-on-Thames since it was established in 1839.
The partnership is a natural step for Hackett following the brand’s dedicated associations with The Boat Race, the London Rowing Club and World Sculling for nearly twenty years.
The Hackett Henley Collection plays homage to the thick striped flannel jackets of the past. The evolution of these renowned jackets were because the rowers need the remain warm during winter mornings on the Thames.
The collection also includes striped and plain cotton shirts, navy and striped blazers, striped and white chinos and essential boating accessories.
To celebrate the launch of the association, Sir Steve Redgrave rowed Hackett Chairman, Jeremey Hackett, down the stretch of river at Henley-upon-Thames made famous by him and other rowers over the centuries.
The Hackett Henley Collection is available in selected Hackett stores and online at www.hackett.com
