Talon Zipper

Unique Half Belted Back

Slim Fitting Cut

Waist Adjusters

Button Cuff Closure


By consistent Public demand, earlier this year we introduced our “Moonshiner”, a button up version of our long term favourite, The Bootlegger.  While history has made the terms Bootlegger and Moonshiner legendary in US history, far less is known about the Hooch Haulers, to some degree the glamour boys of the illicit Whiskey trade. These guys drove a Whiskey Six, a big-wheeled Buick or Studebaker fitted with souped-up Cadillac ambulance motors to make ridiculously powerful moonshine-toting getaway vehicles with were stripped interiors to make room for a maximum load of “product”.

During the years of prohibition, the Appalachia back roads were the racetracks of the region, a top Hooch Hauler knew every dirt road and short cut on those old country tracks, these guys were the original Hot Rodders and many a Customs car ended up wrapped around a tree or in a ditch during the regular high-speed chases.

The idea of a “Prohibition” series came to mind, what was missing from the chain of command was a jacket to honour “The Hooch Hauler” a jacket that replicated the best of the design features that were contemporary to the introduction of the earliest open end zippers

Dating in style between The Moonshiner and The Bootlegger in the Prohibition dateline!

Styling is firmly based in the early 1930s with a slim, flattering cut and a unique period style back. We've raised the armhole and narrowed the sleeve, when compared to the Moonshiner and the Bootlegger, in keeping with the slimmer cut of all the earliest zip closure leather jackets.
