The original Deck Hook Jacket was introduced around 1943/44 and was meant to be a replacement of the earlier Deck Zip Jacket. The U.S. Navy was experimenting with a hook system to close the jacket. Its predecessor had a small sized zipper on the outside which sometimes froze in cold winter and was not to be opened with gloves. Originals were only produced for one year which makes them highly collectible.

Pike Brothers was founded in 1930 by brother George and Joseph Pike. Their small yet high-quality clothing store was located in the famous Portobello Road, Notting Hill, in the heart of London. Custom clothing for men was their specialty. During the Second World War they produced uniforms for American military forces. This was the time when American soldiers came over to England. Pike Brothers managed to combine the best materials with European craftsmanship and create the unmistakable clothing you see today. They simply struck a brilliant balance between American workwear and European expertise. A legacy that defines Pike Brothers to this very day.
Pike Brothers distinguishes itself by respecting and celebrating the original functionality of its clothing instead of simply aiming for superficial succes. All clothing is made in Europe and produced the old-fashioned way. Pure craftsmanship and the best materials add up to this stylish and timeless clothing. Pike Brothers is that perfect combination of style and functionality.
