The wild west had denim but the cowboys of Calderdale wore moleskin

Developed in industrial days moleskin was used as an alternative to woollen cloth for making jackets and trousers. It was one of the main types of cloth woven in Calderdale.

Later it was adopted by country folk for its ability to resist thorns as well as the cold wind.

Warm and wind resistant. Our moleskin garments are ideal for autumn, winter and early spring wear. They’re durable and tough, and ideal for outdoor use whatever the weather.

It’s in the details

British-made zipped fly.

Plastic-free button (made from Corozo nuts!)

Heavy duty bar tacks reinforce pocket stitching.

Bar tacked belt loops that take a proper 1.5″ wide belt strap.

Two roomy front pockets (all moleskin for maximum cozy) and welted rear pockets with plenty of room for a large smart phone.

Our signature secret pocket is built into the front left pocket – the perfect place to stash your coins and other secret stuff.

Moleskin… it’s not made from moles.

No moles were harmed during the making of our trousers – moleskin does not COME from moles, it just feels like a mole’s skin.

Moleskin is a tough heavy fabric made from densely woven cotton, initially looped, then sheared which creates a short soft pile on the upper side. It looks and feels a bit like chammy and some sorts of velvet, but is actually far tougher than either.

Moleskin has been used in trouser making for many years, and is popular for hunting, building work, countryside use due to it’s ability to shrug off damage, keep clean, be “quiet” in use, as well as being breathable, and comfortable even when wet.


Moleskins are 100% cotton. These natural fibres need care to keep them looking good. Wash at 30ºC with non biological detergent, no softener, no tumble drying, air/line dry.

Don’t just stick them in the washing machine with everything. For best results drip dry, SLOW spin, and definitely don’t tumble dry.

Will my moleskins shrink?

Moleskin trousers will shrink up to half an inch in leg length only on first wash (we include a little bit of extra length in the leg to compensate for this). They will give a little with wear, tightening and giving again with subsequent washes.
