Hamilton Carhartt created the Carhartt company in 1889. He created this company to create superior quality work clothes for the railroad worker.
Nowadays the tan-colored Carhartts are a standard that is worn by every worker you see on the side of the highway or on a work site. There are many companies that imitate Carhartt work clothes as well.
The durable material that Carhartt's are made of has stood the test of time. For generations, workers have worn these jackets and bib overall to protect themselves from the cold as well as the rigors of their jobs.
I have owned many of these jackets and Every man I know who works outdoors owns a Carhartt jacket and a pair of bibs.
have owned many Carhartt jackets and bibs. What surprised me was that they have so many different kinds of work jackets. Here are a few of the jackets that Carhartt has available to the working man.
- Carhartt Duck Ridge Jacket,this traditional jacket comes in 5 sizes and 2 colors. Made from 100% ring spun cotton duck material. This jacket has everything but a hood.
- Carhartt Duck Active Jacket, this is another traditional jacket that comes in 4 sizes and 4 colors. Also made from 100% ring spun duck material. This jacket has everything, including a hood and is lined with flannel.
- Men's Duck Active Jacket, this is another traditional jacket that comes in 5 sizes and 3 colors. What separates this jacket from the last one is the thermal lining.
- Men's Duck Detroit Jacket,this is another traditional jacket that comes in 8 sizes and 2 colors. Also made from 100% ring spun duck material, this jacket has no hood, but it is lined with blanket material.
