Each product is of an unparalleled fineness and features the best fabrics found from throughout the world. This is a major announcement for Hardwick and it makes it the number one men’s tailored clothing manufacturer in America, according to CEO Bruce Bellusci.

“The release of our English Blazer and King Cotton Khakis marks another milestone for Hardwick that no one in the industry expected from us,” says Bellusci. “Making products of this quality is a testament to our people’s hard work and the progress we’ve made as a company in such a short time. It’s truly remarkable.”

The new products are a follow-up of the successful launch of Hardwick’s Super 150’s Italian Blazer back in November, the product selected as style winner for Garden & Gun’s 2015 Made in the South Awards, which also marked the most expensive product ever offered by the company in its 135-year history.

The khaki pant is the first to be offered by Hardwick and will launch their new King Cotton Khaki line, a collection of premium cotton pants featuring the finest long spun cotton available, woven by the world famous Biella, Italy-based Solbiati mill. The collection, inspired by the company’s southern heritage, references the title of an 1895 musical piece by John Phillip Sousa’s, the King Cotton March.

The piece was composed for the Cotton States and International Exposition event of the same year that highlighted the importance of the cotton crop in the southern United States. According to Bellusci, the King Cotton Khaki collection follows in the same spirit of the historic event and underscores the importance of the khaki pant to today’s wardrobe.

As the perfect complement to the King Cotton Khaki pant, the company is following up their award-winning Italian blazer with the release of their Super 150’s English Blazer. The fabric hails from Hardy Minnis, a historic mill located in Huddersfield, England, and carries a royal warrant from her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that denotes the mill as an official supplier to the royal family.

In addition to the fine navy cloth, the interior features a custom-designed royal purple Bemberg lining emblazoned with the Hardwick logo. The quintessential navy blazer is completed with a traditional, albeit custom-designed, Hardwick button that was painstakingly matched to the color of a gold Rolex Yacht-Master.
