The company Carhartt has always been popular as a trusted workwear brand, but somehow it has quietly turned into a quiet hype. Why should you consider Carlhartt for your corporate apparel?
Founded in Detroit by Hamilton Carhartt, they first made overalls for railway workers and later expanded to ranchers, farmers and other manufacturing industries. Lots of their classics date back decades. The chore jacket was first made in 1917, the watch cap beanie has stayed the same design since 1987 and the pocket tee dates to 1992. The company also stayed true to its roots, its marketing campaign has always focused on real people who actually wear the clothes to work.
Carhartt’s laid-back branding and unintended rise in popularity has given them the ultimate ‘authentic’ label. Something in today’s culture consumers look for. They want brands to be true to themselves without trying too hard to chase the latest trends with no consideration for the planet. Carhartt’s originality has given them an authenticity that not all brands have managed to capture. In addition, the 90s nostalgia with oversized fits undoubtedly has contributed to its popularity.
In choosing business apparel and workwear, quality matters. Carhartt is known for its quality and its products last a long time. Here are a few of our favorite Carhartt products for corporate apparel.
