Tennessee-based Hardwick Clothes is releasing two additions to is line: the King Cotton Khaki and the English Blazer.

The khaki pant, the first to be offered by Hardwick in its 135-year-history, 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: the King Cotton March.

As the perfect complement to the King Cotton Khaki pant, the company is releasing its 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 blazer will also a feature custom-designed Hardwick button that was painstakingly matched to the color of a gold Rolex Yacht-Master.

“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 CEO Bruce 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.”
