Outerwear for autumn/winter 2012 has been designed for maximum wearability and given the trend title ‘Heritage Workwear’ – which looks to combine rugged construction with luxurious fabrics.
Menswear has been leaning towards more authentic looking products for some time now, and this has filtered down to the high street. With men being encouraged to build a timeless wardrobe and buy into the history and quality of a piece rather than the latest fad – something stressed every day here at FashionBeans – brands that create capsule collections and make use of archival designs are very popular in the current market.
Carhartt is a brand that epitomises ‘Heritage Workwear’. Established in 1889, they have continued to develop their offering with the aim of providing superior apparel for the active worker. Even today, their roots within the blue-collar working class remain, and they have the same stella reputation for producing durable outerwear with unique excellence.
“I believe that when a man wears an article that I manufacture, his self-respect is increased because he knows that it is made by an honest manufacturer, who is honest with his employees.”
This Terry jacket by Carhartt is a timeless/seasonless piece that is a sensible yet fashionable investment. It is made from a sturdy cotton blend and features a funnel neck and lined hood with custom toggle fastenings and leather trims, a concealed front fastening, patch pockets and a zip pocket to the chest, full length sleeves with adjustable cuffs and hem, a leather brand tab, full lining and regular fit.
