I’ve been in love with Carhartt WIP for about 3 years now every since I came across some of their amazing clothing; plus im from Detroit Michigan where Carhartt clothing is definitely a staple in our community. From the urban environment to the construction worker if you mention Carhartt then you mention Michigan. Only thing is this section of the clothing brand is based in London so online ordering is must…..unless you fly over there and go shopping, and if you do grab me some threads!!
The Carhartt WIP Archives, 428-pages of the history of the “Work In Progress” brand, is solid documentation of underground culture over the last 20 years. Artists like Evan Hecox, Lucy McLauchlan, Mode 2, musicians Jamie xx and Modeselektor, and collaborations with A.P.C. and Patta have placed Carhartt at the center of so many relevant artistic milestones, it reads like pictorial history. Edited by Michel Lebugle and Anna Sinofzik, look no further than the opening spreads of the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy rocking Carhartt coats to understand just how far back this influence goes in street wear.
