THE H IN H+CO
Hi, my name is Hiten Thakrar, but I’ve always been known as ‘H’.
I’m the H in H+CO. Born and raised in England, of Indian decent. I first came to Australia as a tourist in 2001, to travel around this beautiful country for a year. One year turned into fifteen and I‘m now proudly an Australian Citizen.
I love what I do and I’m passionate about making my customers look great and feel confident with their sartorial style. I really take the time to get to know all of my customers, who often drop into the shop, just for a chat.
It’s my continual aim to bring the magic back to retail – a return to traditional values, personal service and patience. We’re here to give you all the time you need, the attention you deserve and absolute pleasure in the experience.
It’s wonderful to witness the transformative power a well-styled, well fitted, good quality suit can yield. A man immediately feels more confident, walks a little taller, ready to take on the world.
I get to see this every day – it’s why we’re here.
When I’m not in the showroom, I’ll be busy indulging in the other two great passions in my life – my family, and golf.
THE CO IN H+C O
Who is the CO? Well, that’s all of you – plus my business partners, collaborators, family and friends. Don’t you look great?
A FAMILY TRADITION
My father, Rasiklal Thakrar was a legend in the British menswear industry and has been my inspiration throughout my working life.
A selfmade businessman – what he didn’t know about menswear or business wasn’t worth knowing.
Over four decades he created a portfolio of menswear brands and 220 stores all over the UK, Ireland and Dubai, including; Ciro Citterio, Dunn & Co, Oakland, Horne Bros. and The Sweater Shop.
I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have his mentorship – his passion and knowledge was instilled in me from a very early age and he has heavily influenced my life and career.
You can’t beat the attention and advice of an expert menswear professional. I provide first-rate advice and knowledge about the products you buy without pressure-selling – My aim is to make your shopping experience easy and enjoyable every time and sell only items that make you look awesome!
I personally guarantee you’ll be 100% satisfied with our products and our unrivalled customer experience. Many of my customers have become close, personal friends, largely because I provide an ‘old school’ service that’s tailored to them as individuals, offering great products and exceptional value.
We’re here to help you – what ever it takes.
