Season-after-season, Carhartt WIP manages to blend two worlds — functional military aesthetics with timeless staples fit for any menswear wardrobe. For Spring/Summer 2013, the Carhartt WIP imprint releases a new camouflage iteration to its blazer. Manufactured from 100% Cotton ‘Columbia’ 6.5 oz Ripstop, the jacket arrives in an unlined construction with a tailored fit. Two oversized front pockets reside upon the torso while a minimal Carhartt patch sits along the left chest.
When Carhartt WIP initially unveiled its Carhartt Heritage extension, it stepped out on its new excursion by looking to the rich history of the brand for inspiration and design tenants. Fast forward to Spring/Summer 2013, and the Detroit, Michigan, workwear brand hasn’t strayed very far from its origins of functional and well-made goods that stand the test of time. This season sees an addition to the Carhartt Heritage line via the Dozier Bomber in a muted Hamilton Brown colorway. Made from 9.9 oz, 100% Cotton Canvas, the jacket juxtaposes supple corduroy accents along the collar and contrasting Norwegian embroidery along the upper chest and shoulders. Contrasting ribbed cuffs and lower hem round out the classic bomber silhouettes.
