Back to All Events


The Chicago Collective's Opening Night Party has become the staple event for most Buyers and Exhibitors. Celebrating the show’s opening and Hardwick’s recent rebrand, this lively annual event will take place along the Mart River Park, overlooking the Chicago River. Guests will savor summery cocktails, local brews [sponsored by Lake Shore Beverage] and food [catered by Marshall's Landing] while enjoying live music, mingling with familiar faces and new acquaintances amidst the city’s awe-inspiring architecture. 

Hardwick continues to evolve in its quest to offer the most impeccably made product, crafted from the finest materials in the marketplace, remaining as we have since our founding 137 years ago: 100% American Made. Relaunching our brand and global flagship website with a nod to both our heritage as America's Oldest Made in USA tailored clothing manufacturer, and our proud Cleveland, Tennessee/small-town-USA roots, Hardwick offers soft, lightweight, modern fitting suits, sports coats and pants for today's new younger thinking customer with fabrics from the most innovative Italian mills. We represent the best of what America has to offer at a great price with the heritage of a 138 old company and the creativity for a new startup!
