Carhartt WIP.

As ‘an exercise in eclecticism’ autumn/winter ‘19 sees Carhartt continue to evolve with a selection of styles that reflect a combination of military and sportswear influences. Offering a contemporary approach to design whilst incorporating their knowledge of producing purposeful workwear - fabrics and silhouettes remain the main focus whilst a new real-tree print and houndstooth check emphasises key pieces. At the core of every collection, the Icons Remastered project updates WIP favourites with seasonal materials and colours such as the Michigan Chore Coat and Detroit Jacket which have both been reimagined in their OG fit cut from aged dearborn canvas with insulated linings.

The Norvel Check Pant and Ryder Check Jacket from the Warp and Weft collection use houndstooth wool to achieve a classic work-wear informed aesthetic, whilst the Prentis Pullover incorporates block colours against technical fabrics for the Mountain Trek range that suits ‘aprés-ski to after hours’. Alongside this, the Military apparel and accessories project continues on from last season with outerwear and overshirts

accentuated with a new vivid orange real-tree camouflage print.

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.
