British men's wear label Hackett London has opened its debut store in Tokyo, Japan. The new store is located in the heart of the new retail district at 5-2-1 Ginza, in Chuo-ku and spans a total of 330 square meters. Divided across two floors, the first store offers Hackett London's entire range and features a area dedicated to personal tailoring.
In honour of the brand's first store in Tokyo, Hackett has launched a series of exclusive ranges created with the Japanese customer in mind. One of the ranges is a 'Made in England' collection, which consists of three suits and three jackets crafted from fabrics made by British mills. In addition, six 'made in England' shirts, made from cotton from Thomas Mason mills, complete the range as well as two ventile raincoats, which are produced in London.
The store will also offer three styles of shoes manufactures in Northamptonshire, a collection of leather accessories made by Swaine Adeney and a collection of luxury leather luggage cases made in collaboration with Globe-Trotter and Hackett. A limited edition set of cufflinks has also been especially designed for the debut Hackett store in Tokyo, as well as a classic blue blazer featuring a Union Jack lining as Jeremy Hackett, Chairman of Hackett London, refers to the navy blue blazer "as an essential in every gentleman’s wardrobe because it is the equivalent for men of the ladies ‘little black dress'.
