I was over the moon to have been invited to the Hackett Retreat. I am such a huge fan of the brand and it was also a pleasure to meet the owner, Mr Jeremy Hackett himself.
The weekend was jam packed with activities. I got the opportunity not only to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a “Hackett gentleman” but got to experience it first hand. For those of you that aren’t too familiar with the Hackett brand and are therefore a little baffled as to what I’m going on about, allow me to enlighten you with a glimpse into what I got up to. From checking into a ridiculously fancy hotel and champagne by the bucket load, to rowing with the Oxford rowing team and finally living out every man’s dream by test driving an Aston Martin on a secret base. Oh, and did I mention that this secret base was where James Bond was filmed?
It was a weekend overflowing with excitement and I definitely had what they refer to as “The Hackett experience”.
