Returning to the archive, these vintage workwear pieces are a testament to Carhartt's authenticity when it comes to design. From structured worker jackets to functional washed-denim overalls, the brand has consistently delivered relaxed, durable staples. This retro quarter-zip sweater, casual pair of dark-wash jeans and camel-colored jacket wouldn’t seem out of place as part of their latest offering.

The silhouette of this jacket is routinely reissued — in a versatile navy hue, the wool-mix number makes for an ideal transitional outerwear option. This gray crewneck sweatshirt serves an instant wardrobe staple, while khaki cargo pants and a rust-colored beanie adhere to the label’s earth-toned color palette. The more you know, right?
