The 1937 Roamer Shirt is based on the authentic American working shirt from the late 1930s. The shirt has a regular fit and a typical asymmetrical breast pocket voor 'smokers comfort'. This so called 'smokers-pocket' enables the owner to fetch a cigarette from a softpack without having to take out the whole package. The flannel shirt is a timeless item in fashion history worn by both working class men, lumberjacks, the Beach Boys and Ice-Cube. This Red Checked version even dates back to the late 18th century Scottish Highlands. Back then England prohibited people from wearing prints like the Red Check because they feared rebellion outbreaks of clans would occur.

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.
