    Hello.

    Has anyone heard of a brand of clothes called 'Saxon Hawk (of Savile Row)'? I just bought a suit made by them at a charity shop and wondered what the company's history was. I doubt it's Savile Row; the company name seems too contrived.

    Apparently Saxon Hawk is/was a brand of Forminster PLC, who owns Kookai. I can't find any new information about Hawk, so I guess it's a dead brand.

    I've been told my father used to wear Saxon Hawk as a child; though considering my mother's ability to recount factual information, this may be from when he was a child up to when he was a teenager. He was born in '45 or so, so that'll give you some idea of the brand's age.
