Carhartt symbolizes ruggedness and hard work. Most folks in Maine are well-versed in the strength of the clothing and the brand. The Dearborn, Michigan company sent out a few pieces from their 2013 Spring/Summer line to test. With the warmth of summer slowly encompassing Maine, we took a day off, hopped on our Harley's and hit the back country roads for an afternoon. Here are some shots of the products we tested.
Force Cotton Tee's wicks away the moisture from a warm day. What the wind on a wide open road doesn't take care of, Carhartt will, wash after wash. Whether in the gym or at work, this tee is ideal.
6" Carhartt Work Boot - what I'll be stomping around in this summer. The boots look good and are functional for any job, whether that's a backyard chore or the construction site. From first wear - the fit is good and snug and the leather is perfectly comfortable. Most important for me, they allow my feet to breathe all day. These will last years and only better with age.
Men's Rugged Cargo Shorts fall to the knee and are fit with cargo pockets large enough to carry most essentials. The design is roomy enough for comfortability on a long bike ride, and that alone speaks volumes.
The Essential Plaid Shirt keeps up with the style of fans of Backwoods Plaid. For a soft, comfortable finish, with 8 colors to choose from at $30, you might as well pick up a couple.
