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. Our 1908 Miner Jacket features typical details found on vests around the turn of the last century like pleated fron, open pockets and a cinch back.
For our miner series we 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.
Further details characterize our 1908 Miner Jacket:
- 14oz hemp denim with 50% hemp and 50% cotton
- 3 front pockets
- Donut buttons
- Woven manufacturer patch
- Made in Turkey
