Denim: classic, reliable, versatile. The beauty of the material lies in its simplicity, a fact that British brand Hawksmill, set to launch its 2015 Fall/Winter line in stores such as Oi Polloi and Edifice 417, has embraced with open arms. Founder Fraser Trewik brings 20+ years of experience with brands like Duffer of St George and Nudie Jeans to the operation based out of Brighton in the UK. With a selection of simple denim clothing, the company’s central focus is less on quality and fit. Anyone – stylish or not — can tell you how hard it is to find a “good” pair of jeans; as a wardrobe staple, they’ve got to fit right. Five fits, ranging from Slim Tapered to Regular Tapered, tackle this issue in a reinterpretation of the traditional five pocket while contemporary silhouettes are offered to please a variety of tastes. Quality material and construction go a long way with Cones Mills White Oak selvedge and Union Special machines, giving each trusty piece a sense of character. Despite the company’s emphasis, Hawksmill offers basics beyond denim like utilitarian jackets and shirts, which complete the well-made and perfectly minimal collection.
