Carhartt was once firmly planted in the niche world of workwear, but it’s shifted mainstream and now sits slightly right-of-center alongside classic menswear brands. Carhartt vests adorn men across the country, hammer-wielding or not, and their clothing is both well-made and easy to layer. This makes it perfect for the winter gifting season, and a safe bet for the men in your life who enjoy the idea of wielding an ax.
Think of Carhartt’s designs as heftier, more substantial versions of classic wardrobe staples. A regular chore coat gets bulked up with their Sherpa-Lined Utility Jacket, and a regular long-sleeve sits heavier when it’s their Henley Pocket Tee. Their collection is extensive, and some things will blend in with the average wardrobe more than others, so consider this your Carhartt gifting guide for men.
This brand’s rugged aesthetic has become an aspirational persona for many men, but the hype shouldn’t distract from how the brand has remained a staple for decades. The quality will speak for itself when, after years in a man’s weekly rotation, the pieces still look like new. Trends come and go, but definition staple designs with stitching designed to weather harsh elements are hard to overthrow.
