For Hickey, David Hart has created a collection of luxurious casualwear pieces that encompass sweaters, knitwear, sport shirts, outerwear, soft coats, casual trousers and denim. Fits are modern but not skinny. “The Hickey guy is more sartorial,” Hart said.
For his first collection, Hart said he “looked at photos of the early days of aviation.” Hart pointed to the “great military details” that he used in the line. For example, there’s a slub twill M65 field jacket that he showed over a rag yarn popover and featherwale corduroy pants. Fisherman’s sweaters and donegal puffer vests in flecked wool illustrate Hart’s love of “texture.” He’s also offering a lightweight waxed canvas macintosh coat in a mustard color and sweaters in hues ranging from bright orange to oxblood. There are calfskin leather bombers, cotton slub henleys, and washed five-pocket stretch twill pants.
