Detailed Distinction

For many a menswear brand, in a fast moving fashion landscape – it's not the devil, but the difference that is in the detail. From rough sketches, pattern cutting and fabric choice – every design decision along the way contributes to the finished product and it's that attention to detail which will disparate one designer and their collection from another, in turn allowing stores to offering a distinction in its product and brand variety season upon season.

For the modern man, style and selection is not simply limited to what lies in his wardrobe – as personal taste resonates through to day to day items and necessities which are more than just added luxuries. It's not just clothes that make the man – but indeed the components which complete an individual's look and give insight into interest, attitude and opinion.

This season at Jacket Required, we welcome further brands to the line up to offer a comprehensive combination that includes grooming and perfumery products, luggage and leather goods through to stationery and other luxury lifestyle accessories. See the full list of brands joining us so far on the Jacket Required website.

Eastpak



Eastpak has been making bags that incite people to move since 1952. An authentic, American global lifestyle brand – having originally supplied safety equipment, duffel bags and packs worn on the backs of G.I.'s; Mark Goldman transformed his father's company in 1976 – moving its innovative offering out of the woods and into the city to satisfy the street-smart urban insider and civilian life.

For carrying everything you need in style wherever life takes you, the brand’s strong foundation cements that the same commitment for quality is upheld in the design and manufacture of its current offering of bags, travel gear and accessories as was shown in its military-issue packs and U.S. Army duffels. A long-standing American label with a tale to tell, Eastpak draws upon its rich history for each season's collection and notable collaborations with designers including Raf Simons, A.P.C. and Wood Wood.

Famed for sophistication, durability and functionality – Eastpak gives freedom to experience the city, reinventing the concept of urban utility for urban mobility. A chance to create your own story whether across town, or across the globe.


HEX


As teenagers living in late 1980s Southern California, founders Dan Maravilla and Trent Valladares were brought together by a shared love of music. As band-mates, the duo worked their way up the local club scene in Los Angeles with an eclectic approach mixing jazz, funk, fusion, soul and rock in an alternative style – seeking to create something a step away from the expected. A foray into clothing soon followed as the pair made their own apparel and accessories, soon launching as a start up with a focus on headwear, watches, small leather goods, backpacks and knitwear – originally designing and manufacturing for established labels before launching HEX, some twenty-plus-years since Maravilla and Valladares' first steps into fashion.

Born from a goal and desire to create timeless products for modern living, HEX believes every design should be both beautiful and functional, with aesthetics and performance harmoniously balanced. Such pure innovation lays the foundation for products crafted from premium quality, hand-selected materials that aren't satisfied in only protecting every-day technology but instead seek to inspire, design, transcend and enhance it.
