LONDON — Jacket Required, an annual two-day international men's wear trade show, opened at the Old Truman Brewery here on Thursday.
Launched in 2011, by Mark Batista and Craig Ford, the event showcases men's apparel, accessories and footwear. The name was derived from Ford's catchphrase, which he would typically ask his friends before heading out during his clubbing years in Glasgow. Since launching, the event has organically grown from showcasing 30 brands to 200 labels to date. The new labels to join include Danner, Death to Tennis, Fracap and Loake. Other brands that have previously shown are Clarks, Dickies and Edwin.
