Winter Wonder

The first week of December holds many a milestone on our calendar. Along with hosting the beginning of advent, meteorological reckoning marks the 12th month as the official start to winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

As we prepare for the year's coldest season, we continue to look to autumn/winter 2014 and our building brand list, with many more labels joining us at The Old Truman Brewery. View the full offering on the Jacket Required Brands Page of the website.

For now, we get ready to enjoy the upcoming holiday season. And so, on the first week of Christmas, we give to you – mastered quality denim, London-born outerwear, Danish-designed apparel and stylish Swedish bags for everyday life.


Sandqvist's sleek and simple aesthetic creates items to be used in everyday urban life or a trip into the wild. With a clear Swedish heritage, durable materials and attention to detail are as evident as ever for autumn/winter 2014 in its renowned timeless style, characterised by simplicity and functionality.
A selection of new products are introduced for the new season, into its ever-expanding range of bags and accessories. The newly developed all-over print, inspired by Sweden’s Lynx cat, the mascot of historical province, Hälsingland, will be continued, appearing in a range of items including the Oskar backpack – named after none other than friend, Oskar from brand Denim Demon.
Sandqvist’s collection continues to be uncomplicated and beautiful. Mirroring mountains, lakes and vast unpopulated scenes found in Nordic nature, inspired by Anton, Daniel and Sebastian’s devotion to outdoor life and the raw Scandinavian landscapes around them.
MQT Denim

Built on the principles of quality and authentic European manufacturing, three generations of extensive knowledge and craftsmanship provide the original inspiration behind the brand identity and ultimately the MQT name itself, which represents Mastering Quality Tradition.
With bold designs in a variation of cuts, fits and washes, the family run label takes attention to detail to the next level. Growing at a rapid pace, MQT Denim is working to create a global brand, renowned for raw, industrial chinos and denim collections, each style engineered with a timeless appeal and authentic vintage aesthetic. With a host of collaborations, exclusive collections and limited-edition pieces in the pipeline, the next year shows no sign of slowing down for MQT.

Parka London

Parka London’s objective remains to combine originality and modern design to create traditional, yet contemporary outerwear. The brand’s inventive attention to detail progresses into the autumn/winter 2014 season, its third collection – with detachable hoods, luxe lining and secret drawstrings all establishing a confident love affair between you and your coat. Or rather, your parka.
Distinctive silhouettes throughout each piece of outerwear separate the collection from the crowd. Inspired by the mantra of none other than designer Charles Eames, “the details are not the details. They make the design,” – this idea resonates deeply with the team, and in turn leads to designing each element with the aim to to create an inimitable aesthetic that personifies effortless style.

Created in 2004, Suit combines modern design with classic tailoring, relying on minimalist cuts and clean lines to create a simple, yet classic look that appeals to a traditional but modern man.
Seeking to provide garments with the innate details of Scandinavian-design, Suit pairs the best features from classic tailoring looks with an international and stylish twist – resulting in exclusive garments crafted from quality materials, without making any compromises on style, quality or detail. The brand of choice for the modern male individualist – tailored to the people.

Our invitation-only policy will again be in place for the sixth edition, open exclusively to buyers and press. Please make sure you remember to register your details to request entry to Jacket Required, 5 & 6 February 2014.
