Hackett, the London-based menswear brand with a flagship Irish store in Dublin, have brought out a new charity polo shirt to raise money for the Japanese Earthquake Appeal.
Hackett London have launched a limited edition polo shirt to help the victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami with all profits being donated to the Japan Society “Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund”.
The polo shirt has been designed with traditional Japanese embroidery of the cherry blossom - a symbol of love and affection. The declaration of ‘Hope’ is embroidered on the polo in English and Japanese characters, highlighting the belief in a positive outcome from such a disastrous and tragic act of nature.
Clothes and accessories from the Hackett brand first arrived in Japan two years ago and the distinct classic styling has gone down well there.
Hackett's connection with Japan prompted Hackett co-founder and chairman Jeremy Hackett to bring out the charity shirt.
The polo shirt is available in classic navy and also in white and is manufactured from 100% cotton pique. Priced at €60 the shirt is now available in Hackett stores worldwide.
In Ireland, the shirt is available from Hackett's store at 21-26 South Anne Street in Dublin 2 (just off Grafton Street).
