Pike Brothers Archive - Part I

The Pike Brothers Mail Order Catalog

Pike Brothers has a long and rich history, which began in Brisbane, Australia, in 1885, when two brothers, George and Joseph Pike, started a mail-order business.
Looking back at the old Pike Brothers Mail Order Catalog is a fascinating glimpse into the history of workwear and the evolution of fashion. The catalog is filled with detailed illustrations and descriptions of the garments, as well as fascinating insights into the needs and desires of workers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Pike Brothers expanded its offerings to include more military-inspired garments, such as flight jackets, cargo pants, and field caps. The brand also began to focus on producing high-quality reproductions of vintage garments, using traditional techniques and materials.
