As a tribute to Carhartt’s American legacy we have reworked some of the items from the current US collection. The variations are sensible: all items are re-fitted and you can find additional colours like Tobacco, Dark Navy and Blacksmith only available in our U.S. CLASSICS. The result is products of the best quality in contemporary American work apparel.
Here is a small selection:
The Active Jacket is an all-time Carhartt classic. Made of Cotton “Dearborn” Canvas, the jacket provides its wearer a great deal of protection against scratching and scraping, it can be treated to become water-repellent and has good wind-breaking capabilities. The Active Jacket is lined with quilted flannel, features rib-knit cuffs and bottom band and comes with kangaroo pockets. The reworked fit suits the European contemporary look without losing originality.
Taking its name from the birthplace of the Carhartt company, this jacket has been a favorite for many years. Designed to combine comfort and utility, the Detroit Jacket is popular for its sturdiness as well as for its sharp look. The jacket has a high waistline, and although the European modification features a slightly tighter fit, the jacket is still roomy enough to allow for an extra layer of clothes underneath. Waist and cuffs are adjustable.
The Chore Coat is a distinctive American piece of apparel. Usually worn by those who do physical labor, it is the classic work jacket for all classes of laborers and farmers alike, but also for firemen, and everyday people. The reworked slim cut fits European standards, featuring original details like the blanket lining, a corduroy top collar, triple stitched main seams and two large, reinforced front pockets.
