Carhartt - Work wear Fashion


INDULGE me because this stuff really is working class.
Carhartt the famous American working clothing label is providing something special for summer, which moves it away form the classic denim and work shirt look, with offers such as the Parker Shirt bottle, Folsom and Watson shirts, along with the Texas Niland, Wyatt Burbank, Chester, Presenter and Primary pants are more of the staple lines provided by this well tailored long wearing line.
The classic cotton pant with the slanted front pocket has been sported on skate, BMX styles for a long time acting as a perfect item to complete an outfit, along with the denim line, with the Burback rinsed being my favourites, providing a slim fit straight leg style is classic with the iconic square edged back pocket, but looking to the summer is where the label seem to be heading with some superb T’s and shorts.

The Longplayer T in green, dark grey, crimson and navy emblazoned with the classic C or why not try the Script short, which, how can I put this? Does exactly what it says on the tin.
Brown being the new black is my fav, but of course it available in white and brown and navy, simply do their job, properly.
I have fallen for the ‘Full Colour’ shirt, is designed by Matt Fowler and provides class, style and some fantastic BBQ weather colour for a bargain price.
So add the Primary shorts, in beige, navy and the preppie styling of the Cup jacket in grey heather or blue, sporting the American college look of the letter C on the right hand side of the chest, brings a smattering of Penguin ‘rat pack’ style. The rib-knit collar, cuffs and waist, all shallow cut, will complete a superb lightweight summer style.
But for me the, oh hear we go again I can hear people muttering, ‘there’s always a ‘for me’ at the end of any blog, but I can’t help it I am totally smitten with the Rude navy jacket with Raglan sleeves, rib knit cuffs and bottom band are simply the labels Harrington jacket, and complete the summer in style.
