It doesn’t get more British chic than this; right at home at the majestic Royal Opera House, Hackett’s spring/summer 2013 presentation was a sophisticated parade of tweeds, checks, three-piece suits, and bowler hats. Dapper doesn’t even begin to cover it; the Hackett boys, in their double-breasted waistcoats and blazers and impeccably pressed trousers cut just above the ankle, brought it on like they meant it, Jay Gatsby-style. The presentation solidified the British tailoring titan’s reputation for old-school classics but with added playful deviations like crisp pink trousers, orange ties, and flashy pocket squares, perfect for lounging under the sun at a summer party by a pool at the Hamptons or a manicured lawn at a polo match, martini in hand. The proliferation of stripes, silky scarves, and cotton blazers also introduced a nautical theme, offering the modern gentleman of today a closet for all occasions, be it a Mediterranean yachting cruise or the Cambridge May bumps. Maintaining a balance between modern and traditional in a way that few British tailoring design houses achieve, this season Hackett have added a sense of romantic nostalgia in every piece, in the sophisticated manner of Fitzgerald’s protagonists, looking into the future only through the past.
