Carhartt Work in Progress offers a refined and acutely tailored translation of the classic American heritage brand. The label’s story begins in Detroit where Hamilton Carhartt founded the workwear brand in 1889 with the core principle of building a 'just and honest' company. His vision of Carhartt carries on today both in principle and aesthetic, leading to Work in Progress’ initial distribution in the nineties of a selection of original workwear garments tailored for a European market. Carhartt’s trademark duck canvas in its signature ‘Hamilton’ brown is both durable and an instant signifier of the brand’s founding ethos of quality craftsmanship meeting the highest standards of wearability. Carhartt WIP offers updated silhouettes of trademark classics, including straight-leg or slim-fit trousers and overalls, lightweight quilted bomber jackets, and classic raglan sleeve hoodies with flatlock stitching for optimum durability. With pieces that flow freely between utilitarian, streetwear, and skate culture, the label’s logo remains a characteristic symbol of an all things American. Shifting from working class to varsity leanings, the collection’s pieces are by no means identity-limiting. Carhartt WIP offers an aesthetic that allows for the modern man to either reinforce or reinterpret the definition of Americana by way of a more expansive and progressive outlook on contemporary men’s fashion.
