The Carhartt Active Jacket, Watch Hat beanie and Chore Coat as familiar a sight on a New York City construction worker as worldwide famous hip hop artists such as Nas or the Beastie Boys. In recent years Carhartt is now a recognised leader in street fashion adopting up to date fits, melding with Carhartt work wear heritage.
