Seen here in an earthy shade of washed sand, this Vol 1 Crewneck Sweatshirt from Carhartt arrives as a wardrobe staple from the brand’s latest Relevant Parties collection. Inspired by music culture’s transcendent nature and the notion of independent labels, this 13oz heavyweight hooded sweater is styled to a loose fitting from a comfort oriented 58% cotton and 42% polyester construction. Cuffed sleeves, a thick-band elasticated hemline and colour-matched drawcord trims complement the deep-set split panel hood, whilst the brush lined interior and dual-entry kangaroo pocket above the waist provide the wearer with exemplary insulation and function from first wear. Referential ‘Side A’ and ‘Side B’ black-print scripture decorates each sleeve, whilst ‘C-90 Or Less’ and ‘C’ motif sound wave decals decorate each side of the upper chest with active reference to the brand’s ties to music culture. Across the reverse, between the shoulders, black print ‘Relevant Parties: A Capsule Compilation’ signs the sweater off in line with the collection’s muse.
Pairing with the likes of Ninja Tune, Jazzy Sport, Stones Throw and Public Possession to celebrate 40 years of influential music culture, Carhartt follows on from their previous music-focused capsule collection with Motown and Fela Kuti in true style. Honouring idealism, individuality and the notion of creative character, Carhartt turns its attention to anti-corporate ideals with their latest Relevant Parties release.
