The OG-107 Shirt was part of the regular field uniform of the American armed forces from 1952 to 1963. The first "Type I" model was issued to troops in 1952 and remained unchanged in shape and cut until production ceased in 1963. With slight modifications, the pants remained in service until the early 1980s.
The OG-107 proved itself in the field especially because of its ruggedness and comfortable fit. Because of its suitability for everyday use and comfortable fit, the OG-107 is therefore an integral part of the Pike Brothers collection and we feature it in quite a few different versions. For the summer of 2023, Pike Brothers have made the pants from a special camoflage pattern called the Mitchell Pattern. This pattern was issued to the United States Marine Corps starting in 1953 in the form of tents and helmet covers. The use over time but was not limited to the USMC. The Mitchell, which was also called the Leaf Pattern, has been just as popular with U.S. Special Forces units such as the 5th Special Forces. Since the original print and fabric was a reversible heavy canvas fabric for tents it proofed to be too heavy and uncomfortable for uniform. Therefore small runs were printed for uniforms by private manufacturers. These were non-reversible and made of a lighter fabric. The non-standard pieces could then be procured privately. For example, from small tailors in Okinawa, Japan. For the Pike Brothers Mitchell print, they have used exactly such a privately sourced set from Japanese production in the 1960s.

Pike Brothers was founded in 1930 by brothers 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.
