Carhartt was born in 1889 in Detroit, Michigan, the industrial heart of the USA. As a manufacturer of rugged and reliable workwear, Carhartt quickly established itself as one of the most trusted clothing brands for those who required practical garments for everyday use. As the brand grew, Carhartt branched out into lines of casual wear that still retained those core principles of comfort and durability.
The Carhartt Work in Progress line takes its cue from more than a century of experience, making garments like the Carhartt WIP chino the choice for craftsmen in every field. This firm commitment to function in form has seen Carhartt clothing embraced by a new generation. Designed specifically with the European market in mind, Carhartt WIP is the contemporary cousin of the iconic American brand.
The Carhartt WIP chino embodies the forward thinking aesthetic of the Carhartt Work in Progress catalogue. Carhartt WIP has combined its trademark expertise in advanced textiles with its sensibility for functional design - creating a modernized version of the classic chino, refitted to meet the demands of active lifestyles in contemporary environments. Practical and hardwearing, the Carhartt WIP chino is a go-to garment found in countless wardrobes.
Staying true to its codes of simplicity, all Carhartt WIP chinos feature a flat front with a tapered, straight, slim or relaxed leg. Classic seam pockets at the front maintain a minimalist appearance that makes these trousers so popular, while the two welt pockets at the rear add another layer of functionality. With bartack stitching at vital stress points - this line is an authentic expression of Carhartt’s core principals of simple and comfortable clothing.
These pants are built to withstand the rigors of everyday wear, whatever the setting. A timeless style that blends versatility with simplicity, chinos from Carhartt WIP bring a modern twist to a much loved classic.
