The Armor Cloth Fabric

The new Pike Brothers styles are made with the brand’s Armor Cloth fabric. This is a very stiff and robust waxed 100% cotton fabric. In the beginning, the fabric is stiff, just like unwashed jeans, but with time and wear it will soften and will age beautifully too with a patina.

The Armor Cloth fabric is double-sided waxed, 530 g per sqm, made by Halley Stevenson. They’re a traditional company based in Schottland and are known for their high-quality made waxed fabrics.

The origin of the fabric is in the automotive world where it was used in the 1920s and 1930s for car and truck covers. Next to this, this fabric is ideal to use for outdoor activities too as it is robust, water-repellent, and offers great longevity.

The 1937 Roamer Vest

The 1937 Roamer Vest by Pike Brothers is designed with the typical outline of a 1930s worker vest. While the design looks simple, it is functional and timeless and can be worn all year round. The design features three outer and one inner pocket that offers enough storage for all your daily belongings such as your keys, phone, and wallet.

The buttons on the vest feature a logo, and the vest is strength with bar tacks at stress areas. They’re produced in Portugal.

The 1908 Miner Jacket

Pike Brothers‘ 1908 Miner Jacket style was born during the golden era of gold mining in North America. This jacket style was designed to use to protect the owner from their heavy daily work duties. It features the typical pleats on the front for expansion and three front pockets. It has a classic boxy fit which gives the wearer enough comfort while wearing the jacket.

Just like the vests, the buttons on the jacket feature a logo, and the jacket is also strength with bar tacks at stress areas. Also, proudly produced in Portugal.
