The men’s new arrivals this season explore several distinct themes, from traditional outdoor gear to baroque-influenced tapestries. These elements are filtered through a distinct Carhartt WIP lens, creating a series of hard-wearing, functional designs.
In the selection, various archetypal Carhartt WIP elements — such as gold button detailing and robust canvas — are spliced together to offer a novel take on the brand’s DNA. This facet of the collection is lent a retro 1970s feel, with its use of muted brown hues and faux shearling fabric. Elsewhere, some styles feature a brutalist Scandinavian bent, marrying textured fisherman style sweaters with clean, austere outerwear.
Other items, meanwhile, have a baroque-collegiate feel, thanks to their use of the Verse print, which has been applied to styles like the L/S Verse Shirt and Hooded Verse Sweat. The selection is rounded out by a series of prep-influenced staples inspired by the brand’s own archival advertising from the 1990s, as well as elements of American casual-wear.
