Early last year we heard a rumbling down in Brighton – apparently there was a raw denim brand right here in the UK! “British selvedge denim” we cried! “Impossible!”
We had to know more…
Of course, once we found out veteran denim-head Fraser Trewick was behind this homegrown wonder, we knew it was gonna be good.
With 20 years in the business, Fraser has lived and breathed denim, finally having the chance to pour his experience and knowledge into a brand of his own. A British-born brand.
Introducing, Hawksmill Denim Co 🙂
Although continuing the long lineage of the traditional five pocket, what sets Hawksmill apart from other raw denim brands is the clean simple look, combined with extremely high standards of manufacture, detailing, and finish.
Using the finest selvedge from the Japanese Kuroki Mills, the jeans are manufactured in Europe with painstaking attention to detail, using vintage Union Special machines and historical construction methods!
This new SS16 range is made up from five classic fits, ranging from Loose Tapered, to Slim Straight, and feature exclusive premium 14oz organic cotton, or the stunning raw dry selvedge if you’re a true connoisseur – yes please!!!
The simple cuts are great, and that Loose Tapered Japanese Selvedge drops heavy with either the classic turn up, or even pinrolled with a banging pair of trainers (like we do!)
But that’s not all. Hawksmill also have all these classic cuts available in artisanal Italian washes, which help you instantly create that well-worn look, as well as a small selection of elegant and understated tees, sweats, shirts, and jackets.
