Carhartt is an iconic brand in workwear, and this week, the company has released four styles that sum up that place in the hearts of hard-working Americans. They call it the Heritage Icon Collection, each piece meant to epitomize the country’s industrious heritage.
The special-edition styles in the Heritage Icon Collection include:
Each piece in the Heritage Collection include a throwback “Car in Heart” logo patch, which was used from 1889 until approximately 1900 on bib overalls created for railroad workers. Additionally, Carhartt is reintroducing its “Red Duck” fabric, which first appeared during World War I when it was used in response to the inability of manufacturers to obtain blue denim dyes from Germany. The fabric remains Carhartt’s renowned brown duck fabric, but in a red tinted colorway unique to this collection.
Carhartt identifies its icons based on response from its consumers, who have continued to purchase these key products throughout the decades. While these icons have evolved to better serve those who keep our country humming, each style has remained a dependable, go-to piece of gear for its consumers.
