Kick Start Your Business – Mr. Jenks

It is the turn of William Jenkins to get his business, 'Mr Jenks', kickstarted on the Right Hook. George Hook and Gerard Tannam of Island Bridge Brand Development were on hand as always to give the business a kickstart, as only they can.

The Business Idea
William has long had an interest in fashion. When he and his partner Maeve started to explore potential opportunities in this world, they spotted the pocket square, a one-time classic accessory that’s been overlooked by the main fashion retailers.
