    I've just been to the site, and I'm not quite sure what it is about. Is it some sort of artistic community? :unsure:

    i've seen this brand around but i always associated with organic hikers etc well that sterotype at least not a hip slightly surf approach.

    they must've reinvented the company

    Carhartt has been one of the "it" brands for years and years in some circles. At least in some parts of Europe.

    It is not for me though.

    Carhartt is favored by indie rockers, punk/hippie hybrids and some manual laborers in these parts. Not as big now as it was 3-4 years ago.

    they have made sturdy 'work clothes' for years...think ups uniform and coveralls etc...heavy duty dickies...the site does look like they're trying to re'invent themselves...i like it...but it seems a few years too late... :unsure:

    As softgrey mentioned, Carhartt in the States is a workwear brand sold in Sears and popular with manual laborers, hunters, etc. But in Europe it's streetwear aimed at young adults. I remember being very surprised a few years back to see a Carhartt store right smack in the middle of London, teens going in and out of it. I don't think they're going to introduce the kind of stuff they sell in Europe over in the US--a move like that would probably confuse people.

    yup, another case of american brand being totally cooler in europe.

    if i wore carhartt here, i would be mistaken for one of the hillbilly's in the FFA. although i have some of their carpenter pants that i took the label off of and they look ok. i like them because they are real workwear so the fabric is really thick and drapes nicely. i wear them to mess around in and once used them to paint in so they look all cool and customized.

    carhartt
    levi's
    wrangler
    lee

    they all have european lines that are so much cooler!

    Ali has 3 Carhartt jackets that she loves dearly. A lot of the kids that rodeo wear them. She doesn't take them to NY with her (not that she doesn't try) because she knows she wouldn't be able to wear them on castings. He favorite one is camoflage.

    my dad wears carhart everyday.. to work

    they make heavy duty workwear that is very durable and no he isn't a hillbilly.. watch the gross generalizations ;) i should tell him he's quite stylish in some parts of the world.

    i wish they were that "chic" over here in the states i would love the basic tshirts if they are as good of quality as the brand's stuff is here.

    Personally i think carhartt is a mediocre brand, not something i would really wear.
    Its very normal 'street' clothing, and most of thier designs are nothing special. if i wear 'street' labels i prefer to go with companies that have really unique designs and high quality materials/construction such as community or victim.
    Thats just my opinion however.

    I always thought Cahartt was just a cheap but well advertised cash-in on the homogeny of youth and their universal love of anti-fashion Americana and then dads started wearing it too.

    When I hear "Carhartt" I think of brown duck overalls and big camo hunting jackets.

    My dad, my B.I.L., and about half the inspectors at my work wear Carhartt coveralls in the wintertime.

    I was surprised to see a thread on Carhartt here. In the real urban NY in the early/mid 90s, Carhartt carpenter jeans as well as the hooded jackets were the official uniform of teenagers of Queens, NY (where I grew up).
