Fully UK made, like everything we do

9.5oz luxuriously soft and hard wearing moleskin. It’s an overshirt so will work over a sweatshirt as well as with just a t-shirt (or in the buff matron). You don’t need to size up.

Moleskin has a good degree of wind resistance making it a great choice for outdoor adventures.

It's in the details

Two large side seam pockets for cozy hands and holding loads of stuff.

Single large outside chest pocket big enough for plus sized phones.

Single inside chest pocket same as above.

Hang loop inside neck.

UK made plastic-free Corozo buttons. More about them here.

Flat hem with side seam vents.

Run and fell side seams.

HebTroCo originally started with moleskin trousers & this wonder fabric continues to be a key part of our range.

It’s warm, soft, looks great and wears well.

No, moleskin isn’t made from moles…

Moleskin does not COME from moles, it just feels like a mole’s skin.

This tough heavy fabric is 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 is popular for hunting, building work, and countryside use due to its ability to shrug off damage, keep clean, be “quiet” in use, as well as being breathable, and comfortable even when wet.

Originally developed in the industrial days, moleskin was used as an alternative to woollen cloth for jackets and trousers. It was chosen for its warmth and hard wearing qualities. Later it was adopted by country people 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.

Finished with natural buttons, not plastic.

People tried to put us off. They told us about the trouble and expense of using UK-made buttons… but we ignored them.

It turns out they were right…  Our buttons are about 50 times more expensive than a plastic mass-produced button from overseas.

They are also 50 times better.

Our buttons are made of Corozo palm nuts. They are harvested from sustainable rainforests in Ecuador, where trees are planted and maintained rather than being cut down.

This means that our nuts are green and they are very special. As well as being natural the material is tough, takes colour well and gives a pleasing marbled effect.

    Superb
    I pounced on this on launch as I’ve bought a few Hebtroco things and it looked gorgeous.
    Naturally, as soon as it arrived the country was plunged into a heatwave, hottest day of the year, due to last for weeks, etc…
    So although I haven’t worn it extensively I can say it’s
    – Perfect fit
    – Tough, but supersoft material
    – Reallly good construction
    – Pockets!
    – Gorgeous colour
    – Will keep me nice and warm (if this bit of the planet cools down again)
    – My new favourite shirt
