Carhartt Culture

In the realm of workwear, one name stands tall, synonymous with rugged durability, reliability, and timeless style – Carhartt. Founded in 1889 by Hamilton Carhartt in Detroit, Michigan, this iconic brand has deep roots in the world of industrial work clothes, and its story is a testament to the enduring value of quality craftsmanship.

At its inception, Carhartt had a singular mission: to create clothing that could withstand the harshest conditions. Hamilton Carhartt started with two sewing machines and five workers, crafting durable overalls initially tailored for railroad workers. His vision was clear: to provide hardworking labourers with rugged apparel capable of enduring long hours, unforgiving weather, and demanding physical tasks.

Carhartt's commitment to uncompromising quality quickly gained traction, earning trust among workers in various trades. From farmers tilling the soil to construction workers braving the elements, Carhartt became a symbol of reliability and resilience.

The iconic brown duck canvas fabric, known for its durability and sturdiness, became a hallmark of Carhartt's workwear. Its distinctive logo – the "C" with an arrow – became a symbol of pride for those who wore it.

Over the years, the brand expanded its offerings to include a wide range of workwear apparel, from Carhartt Detroit jackets, hoodies, and tees to rugged work trousers and overalls. Today, Carhartt's workwear legacy endures, and its commitment to quality and utility remains unwavering.

But Carhartt is not just about workwear; it's a lifestyle. Its work-inspired designs have transcended job sites to become a fashion statement. Whether you're on a construction site, in the great outdoors, or simply navigating urban streets, Carhartt's rugged yet stylish apparel continues to be a symbol of authenticity and endurance.

In a world that constantly evolves, Carhartt remains rooted in its workwear heritage, a living testament to the timeless appeal of quality, functionality, and uncompromising durability. Shop our deep collection of Vintage Carhartt.
