carhartt was founded in 1889 by Hamilton Carhartt in the USA and still produces rugged workwear today. Carhartt WIP is only founded in 1994 by Edwin Faeh and combines authentic adaptations of traditional carhartt workwear while engaging with the subcultures that shaped it.
No way! Carhartt WIP has, among other things, its own skate team, runs its own music department and is involved in many collaborations with artists, musicians and other creatives that go far beyond the clothing sector.
"Carhartt WIP is just really a timeless and amazing product that traces back to something real." Matthew Williams
