Carhartt was founded in 1889. From the beginning they made workwear for manual labor. That meant the clothes had to be tough and durable. Carharrt is still made to this day and ran out of Dearborn, MI. The nice thing about Carharrt is that their clothes are made so well that they truly last forever, never going out of style. Even when they're worn in and beat up, their jackets and pants and shirts all look great. This vintage Carhartt blanket denim chore coat, heavily worn in and faded, is just what you want out of Carhartt jacket.
