The fast growing gold rush in the West of the USA has led many work wear manufacturers to specialize on the production of mining wear. Especially jackets were worn in the mines since they protected the upper body in the narrow work place.
The 1908 Miner Jacket features typical details found on jackets around the turn of the last century like pleated front, open pockets and a cinch back. For the miner series Pike Bros. have recreated a denim which was also typical of that time: our 14oz hemp denim. The denim is 50% hemp and 50% cotton making it rich in structure and sturdy in construction.
