I have always grown up with and around Carhartt, whether it was for working around the yard or lounging around the house. They have always been dependable in producing quality products and gear for the most extreme work conditions. Starting in 1889, Carhartt has been making a switch into more “street” styled workwear and clothing recently with Carhartt Work In Progress or Carhartt WIP. Started in 1994 and only introduced to Europe, Carhartt released its first WIP line in 1997 exclusively for European consumers. Opening a shop in the heart of SOHO, the New York City shop has had a ton of success since its open in the states. Providing chinos, cargo pants, shirts, vests, jackets and just about anything else you could think of with a slightly urban twist. So, whether it is for work or home, Carhartt provides and continues to provide the quality standard of clothing and products for just about anyone.

Today marked another Thursday Supreme drop. My favorite from the drop would have to be the Linen Croc Strap camp cap. Made of linen and featuring a croc skin strap with buckle enclosure on the back. This is the third season involving the croc strap on a camp and it doesn’t seem to be fading away. Each season they all sell out, which mean people are still interested. Although you will be paying a bit extra, $68+shipping, these hats are very comfortable and give a simple look. Offered in tan (pictured), navy, red and black. All colors are sold out currently except for navy but I don’t expect that to last much longer. Get on http://www.supremenewyork.com to check out the croc strap camp caps and the other items from the release this morning. If you did miss out, keep the web-shop open for possible restocks.
