To haul, to pull, to carry or to drag. These are all words that very much indicate the origins of the Pike Brothers 1905 Hauler Vest. Back in the day vests were worn in order to protect the work shirts from dirt and abrasion. Therefore work wear vests had a fitted outline in order not to be caught on sharp corners whilst working in warehouses or on machines.
For this edition Pike Brothers have used a very nice 12oz selvage denim where warp and weft are dyied. The yarn is slightly irregular creating a hard wearing fabric with a rich structure.
Being prewashed, the Hauler Vest steel blue doesn`t shrink.
- 12oz Selvage Denim made of 100% cotton

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 Pick 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.
