What Does Carhartt WIP Mean?
Carhartt WIP stands for Carhartt Work In Progress, a sub-label to the original founded in 1989 for an ever expanding European and Asian market overseas. WIP is most notably known for its modern cuts of classic Carhartt pieces with additional details such as corduroy collars on classic jackets, artistic patterns on short sleeved shirts, or streetwear-influenced accessories such as headwear and bags. Pieces are heavily influenced by the once underground and now mainstream street fashion scene, and the brand itself is represented well in these areas with a skate and BMX team, an independent radio show known as “Carhartt Radio” which can be found on SoundCloud, and various forms of photography which defines the age of media made art that surrounds us.
Fashion Facts About the Carhartt WIP Brand.
Here at Azalea, some of our more notably unique offerings from WIP can be seen with our Script Bucket Hat, a simple yet notable headwear choice for those looking to add another element to their visual ideas. The Deming Jacket adds an element with our lineup of goods that no cold city should be without, a puffer. The puffer’s image in the New York 90s hip-hop scene, most notably scene across figures such as Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., or Jay-Z to simply name a few, is as timeless as Carhartt WIP itself. Lastly, our assortment of a variety of colorways to the brands immortal pieces (most notably, the Detroit Jacket and Michigan Coat) is something that is constantly updated and changing. So if you like a color, pick it up as it may not be back any time soon!
