Like all the best labels, HAWKWOOD MERCANTILE is a labour of love. Head honcho RICHARD ILLINGWORTH has an encyclopaedic knowledge of military and outdoor wear, with his dedication to producing goods to the most exacting standards prevalent throughout his work.
HAWKWOOD MERCANTILE’S journey has circumnavigated the globe, with Richard having started the company when living in INDIA, where he sourced and employed a team of first-class tailors to produce his garments. A kind of SAVILE ROW meets PLATOON via INDIA type of operation. Those relationships have endured, with HAWKWOOD continuing to use the tried and trusted allies of the label's early days.
