Carhartt first came to light in 1889 when Mr. Hamilton Carhart started to produce workwear clothing for the industries in and around Michigan and eventually further afield.
Hamilton was a businessman and was keen to make a product that stood out from the rest. He even added an extra ‘t’ to the end of his name so he stood out from other people with the same surname. Carhartt developed a heavy-duty duck canvas in their now-famous Hamilton brown colorway. The aim of the game was not to produce the cheapest but to produce the best workwear that would outlast others.
