Hardwick was recently announced as the in-studio men's apparel provider for NBC's on-air talent for Olympics sports coverage that is currently airing on 11 networks and has an unprecedented 6,755 hours of programming across NBC's broadcast and digital platforms, making it the most live Olympics ever.

Recent times haven't always seemed too bright for this southern institution, as the organization was on the brink of bankruptcy only two years ago.

It was then that Jones stepped in to save 300 jobs in his hometown and preserve an American legacy.

In addition to today’s Fox News segment and NBC's Olympic coverage, the company has had a remarkable year that includes being named Garden & Gun's 2015 "Made in the South Awards" style category winner with their Super 150's Italian Blazer, recognized as a 2016 Top Innovator by Apparel Magazine for their new launched H-Tech Collection, as well as their release of their King Cotton Khaki collection that is being billed as the "best khaki pant in the world."

"This has been a great year for Hardwick as we celebrate the pendulum swinging back to 'Made in America,'" said Hardwick CEO Bruce Bellusci, who is also featured in the Fox & Friends segment. "Hardwick is the oldest business of its kind in America and Allan Jones and I will continue working together to make the brand famous again worldwide."

Cleveland, TN, businessman C.L. Hardwick founded Hardwick Clothes on July 28, 1880 and the company stayed in the family until the Jones acquisition.

"Old Glory only had 38 stars in 1880 and we are still raising the same flag C.L. Hardwick raised on the company's first day 136 years ago," Mr. Jones said.  "Since that first day, the company has survived two major fires, two World Wars, the Great Depression, leisure suits, NAFTA and – worst of all – making us watch China manufacture our Olympic team's blazers."
