Carhartt Highlights Historic Styles With Release of Heritage Icon Collection
Made in the U.S.A.
Four Icons Proven to Stand the Test of Time; Chosen By Thousands of Hardworking Americans

DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 11, 2019 Carhartt, America’s premium workwear brand since 1889, today announced the release of its Heritage Icon Collection, a compilation of four styles manufactured in the USA for hardworking Americans who have been loyal to the brand for decades. These pieces epitomize the country’s industrious heritage and highlight Carhartt’s role in producing some of the most trusted workwear garments.

The special edition styles in the Heritage Icon Collection include:

  • A18 Watch Hat
  • J130 Active Jac
  • K87 Workwear Pocket T-Shirt
  • B01 Firm Duck Double Front Work Dungaree

Each piece in the Heritage Collection include a throwback “Car in Heart” logo patch, which was used from 1889 until approximately 1900 on bib overalls created for railroad workers. Additionally, Carhartt is reintroducing its “Red Duck” fabric, which first appeared during World War I when it was used in response to the inability of manufacturers to obtain blue denim dyes from Germany. The fabric remains Carhartt’s renowned brown duck fabric, but in a red tinted colorway unique to this collection.

Carhartt identifies its icons based on response from its consumers, who have continued to purchase these key products throughout the decades. While these icons have evolved to better serve those who keep our country humming, each style has had remained a dependable, go-to piece of gear for our hardworking consumers.
