Michael and David at Hackett
As if the sharp suiting, classic styling, soft knitwear and smart shirts weren’t reason enough to visit Hackett, upstairs on the second floor is a hidden treasure: Michael O’Connor, Hackett’s in-house barber.
Michael has been trimming the locks of in-the-know locals at Hackett for 15 years, winning scores of devoted regulars who keep coming back for his super-fast, always perfect cuts, while his jovial story-telling and whistling make each appointment an occasion.
Joining Michael on the second floor is David Sturgeon, who wields a cutthroat razor with breath-taking dexterity at the Murdock grooming store, which opened late last year, and where you can have a traditional wet shave, a professional beard trim, or even a consultation on your moustache as you sip on complimentary tea, coffee, or even a beer.
So whether you’re shopping for a new suit, shirt, shoes, or nothing at all, don’t miss a chance to be smartened up by Michael or David on Sloane Street.
A hair cut with Michael costs from £20; a wet shave with David costs from £45. Hackett, 137 Sloane Street, SW1X 9AY
