Carhartt WIP.

Remaining focused on creating high grade clothing and apparel that exudes quality and classic style, for SS20 Carhartt has continued to build upon their core, classic WIP styles by introducing new hiking-inspired designs alongside updates across some of their iconic outerwear silhouettes. With the warmer seasons in mind, the designs are versatile and use fabrics that offer protection without bulk and are coloured in fresh colour tones that enhance custom prints and details. A breathable mesh lining has been added to the Detroit (Summer) Jacket to ensure suitability for the warmer seasons without drawing away from the designs iconic look whilst utilitarian details influenced by practical outerwear designs can be seen across styles such as the Elmwood Vest and Elmwood Pants as a nod to a current trend for hiking inspired apparel. Likewise, the Cargo Joggers are an essential style for the season and offer a combination of comfort and practicality with multiple pockets and an elasticated waistband and ankles.

Seen on styles such as the Huntington Stripe Long Sleeve T-Shirt, stripes are a key print for Carhartt this season and have been reworked in various widths and colour combinations to bring a strong look to short and long sleeve t-shirts made from premium cotton. Similarly, a new selection of graphics adorn everyday

silhouettes and show the WIP ‘C’ emblem set within outdoor scenes as a nod to a prime theme for the new year. As far as accessories go, the Stratus Low Beanie remains a must-have for the build up to spring with an insulating itch-free acrylic outer.

As one of Flatspot’s hero brands, Carhartt supplies us with premium quality wardrobe staples throughout their seasonal ranges. Both the Chase and American Script range focus on using premium cotton jersey for staples such as the Chase T-Shirt and the Zip Neck Sweatshirt which can be teamed with a pair of Chase Sweatpants for a full leisurewear look. Not forgetting their workwear heritage, the Michigan Chore Coat, Nimbus Pullover and Bib Overall are reintroduced each season in appropriate weight fabrics with subtle updates that ensure the original purposeful character is retained.

Founded in 1994, the WIP line was developed through the original Detroit family owned Carhartt label and notable collaborations with brands such as Stussy and Vans increased popularity with skateboarders and those in need of heavy duty clothing. The Carhartt logo still represents a better buy, certifying the established reputation for quality.
