When Carhartt was founded in 1889, Hamilton Carhartt spoke about the role of a responsible business, doing "the just and honest thing, gainful if possible". These core principles have underpinned Carhartt's approach to workwear from the very beginning and continues today.
This is a vintage unworn deadstock Carhartt - Made in USA - blanket lined duck cotton canvas workwear jacket, with four patch pockets and a cord collar. The printed chest label and buttons date this to the 1970s.
There are some light scuffs on the jacket, discolouration and a stain to the left (as worn) upper shoulder area, which must have occurred due to storage but overall it is in mint condition considering the age. There was also a ticket inside the pocket which we believe to be the maker or inspection ticket. Steamed and ready for a new owner, we have not washed to keep it original, and the stain may well come out with a wash.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary from brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up (if applicable) on a flat surface:
