Since it was founded in 1889, Carhartt has come a long way. In fact, the brand’s commitment to practical ways of living has seen it transition from simple workwear to inner-city style - perfect for those who appreciate the straightforward, hands-on appeal of the Carhartt brand. In 1994, this sparked the creation of the Carhartt Work in Progress line, created specifically for European markets that value the raw integrity of iconic American workwear.
Designed to explore a new, international urban identity, this range introduced authentic cuts and textiles, refitted for contemporary lifestyles. Following in the footsteps of the original Detroit based tailors, the underlying principles of quality, durability, and comfort remain evident in the Carhartt WIP catalogue today. Carhartt WIP cargo pants are just one example of that well-respected heritage.
Carhartt takes on a military classic and refits it for the urban landscape with Carhartt WIP cargo trousers. Originally designed for paratroopers who needed to hit the ground running, this style embodies the practical spirit of the Carhartt WIP aesthetic. Durable, hardwearing, and born out of necessity, embedded in the design of this distinctive style is a resistance to tough, outdoor activities. Reinforced throughout, the dual pocket cargo pant became the standard issue for almost all branches of the U.S. military.
Constructed from 100% durable cotton that is double reinforced at the knee to allow bending, Carhartt WIP cargo trousers feature a resilient design made for every lifestyle. In addition to the dual cargo pockets with flap closures that are characteristic of this style, this line also features two fully functional back pockets with flap closures and two seam pockets at the front. All Carhartt WIP cargo trousers feature adjustable leg openings and include bartack stitching at vital stress points as standard. Functional and durable, Carhartt WIP cargo trousers provide the understated aesthetic demanded by urban lifestyles, without ever compromising on quality.
