Fusing functional, practical clothing with contemporary streetwear, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) is the definitively cool sub-brand offering Standout.co.uk customers re-imagined American styles with a fresh, modern twist. Our collection of Carhartt WIP men’s clothing is made up of heavyweight cotton tees, insulating outerwear and fashionable trousers. Keep reading as we dive into the heritage of the brand, offering Standout customers an in-depth insight into the menswear brand currently making waves across the streetwear scene, as well as answering frequently asked questions and providing a number of Standout HQ-approved styling tips and suggestions.
What’s the difference between Carhartt and Carhartt WIP?
Carhartt’s original self-titled brand was founded with the intention of providing robust, practical everyday workwear for manual labourers. Supplying functional overalls, tough overcoats and reinforced work trousers, Carhartt’s range of full-cut workwear is still favoured among construction workers, farmers and general outdoorsmen who are looking for practical day-to-day protection against the elements. The Carhartt WIP sub brand is a slightly less practicality-focussed variation of the brand, combining Carhartt’s signature workwear aesthetic with a more laid back, fashionable approach.
Carhartt WIP keeps all the same functional styling components that first gained the brand such popularity amongst manual labourers but at a more refined, wearable level. Swapping out heavy-duty fabrics for more every day wearable garment styles to create more relaxed, casual fits, Carhartt WIP is the perfect blend of functionality and high-quality style. Gaining a loyal following through several high-profile collaborations including APC, Commes Des Garcons and Vetements, our complete collection of Carhartt WIP menswear at Standout.co.uk, showcases the very best of the brand, from signature pullovers, slim-fit cargos and sweaters.
Is Carhartt good quality?
As the initial inspiration behind Carhartt’s menswear line was to provide robust, durable clothing for workers, Carhartt lives up to their industry reputation to bring customers excellent quality clothing that is designed to last. Though the Carhartt WIP sub-brand doesn’t have a strong focus on supplying workwear to the masses, the fashionable, streetwear label still sticks to supplying high-quality garments, with a more refined, relaxed fit. With signature Classic Carharrt WIP Tees made from 100% cotton, and the Newel Cord Jeans built from a reinforced, robust cord, our range of Carhartt WIP clothing is designed to remain on-trend, whilst promising years of quality wear.
