Back in the 1980’s, when the Western world was dominated by a wave of blue denim, Carhartt‘s brown duck work coats entered the streets as an antidote. Originally designed to be worn on the bodies of hard-working men in mines and railroad tracks, it made it’s way into the cities and later evolved into the streetwear icon that it is today. In the new photo book, “The Carhartt WIP Archives,” Rizolli takes an in-depth look at the genesis and evolution of Carhartt and it’s European “Work In Progress” counterpart. The book features more than 350 images of unpublished photographs, artworks, and draws from the company’s own archives and private collections. Fans of iconic American clothing brands will definitely want a copy of this on their coffee table. “The Carhartt WIP Archives” is available for purchase now here.
