What we do
We research. We test. We rethink.
We perfect. We never, ever settle.
WE START WITH THE VERY BEST FABRIC.
In addition to being softer and more elastic than other types of wool, merino wool is also naturally antibacterial and environmentally sustainable. All of this is great, but at Hardvark, we believe merino can be even better. That's why we make all of our garments from specially formulated high-performance merino sourced in Australia and New Zealand. It's breathable, durable, packable and pretty much the best you can buy—and believe us, we did a lot of field research (the kind in actual fields).
THEN ADD IMPECCABLE EUROPEAN TAILORING.
The only way to turn the best fabric into the best clothing is thoughtful, detail-oriented design. All of our products are designed and styled in London, giving them the perfect balance of classic style and high performance, built for today's modern man. From jetted passport pockets to sleek side panels, every feature has a story—and is expertly designed to help you write yours.
WE FIND TRUSTED, RESPONSIBLE PARTNERS.
All of our garments are handcrafted in Europe by skilled craftspeople like the ones at Reda 1865, a family-owned Italian fabric mill whose four-generation legacy has been built on their mastery of merino wool techniques. The workers at Reda 1865 (and all of our other partners) not only manufacture exceptionally high-quality clothing—they're also paid fairly and treated ethically. In short, they love what they do, and we think you will too.
AND MAKE SURE EVERY GARMENT IS EXACTLY RIGHT.
Every Hardvark product is crafted by hand in small batches. This means there's no rushing, no shortcuts and no "good enough." It's either right or it isn't—and if it isn't, it doesn't go out. We hold our materials, our processes and our products to a higher standard, and we want you to feel it every time you wear our label.
