carhartt -vintage

Others have written all about why brown duck cloth is used here and here, but just drool over some pieces from Ballyhoo Vintage that are available to buy now. Sort of pissed that the cut of the double-front pants was changed a few years ago (2006?)...anyway, one more reason to search out the deadstock.

The Reference Library blog keeps a good eye out for the old stuff too. "carhartt bandana" used to be one of my ebay saved searches...

At the other end of the spectrum is Carhartt Europe, a licensee of the name with its own manufacturing and designs. You can see the full series of the below ads here by a Belgium artist Dave DeCart.
