Tommy Hilfiger is one of my all time favourite brands; I love the preppy American aesthetic, luxurious yet breathable fabrics and old school, classic designs. It’s one of those timeless household brands that generations to come will still recognise and love as much as we do today! That’s why it’s safe to say Hilfigers designs will still be worn and adored over the coming decades - always a trusted investment!
However, not all of us are lucky enough to have £75 going spare for a polo top, so often we’re left with hopeful birthday wish lists or instagram reposts hash-tagging #hinthint. This was me not too long ago, but then I stumbled upon a secret that I’ve being dying to share! Somewhere down the grape vine, I heard of an online boutique that sells preloved Tommy Hilfiger at lower-than-high-street prices. After checking it out for myself I was over the moon and wanted to share it with all you fellow Tommy-loving bargain hunters!
There is a website… a pretty cool website… that goes by the name of Messina Hembry, that can solve all your designer lusting troubles. They’re the new kids on the block with something to offer that you’ll definitely want to be a part of! Messina Hembry sell vintage designer clothing (not just Tommy) on their quirky online boutique for less than a third of the price of the designers new season collections! Yes sir, you heard correctly; from Ralph Lauren to Versace, from Adidas and Lacoste to Moschino - these guys have it all! Secondhand, but as luxurious in quality and reputation as ever!
The garments are sourced from all over the world making them truly unique and one of a kind, meaning you won’t have to worry about turning up in matching shirts to the pub quiz on Tuesday. Of course there is a vast selection of Tommy Hilfiger to go around, so I’ve selected some of my favourite pieces from their boutique to share with you!
