Carhartt WIP Does the best Bits

Carhartt, or to give it its full moniker, Carhartt Work in Progress (WIP), is a brand so ubiquitous it’s hard to be offended by anything it does. Taking honest-to-goodness workwear and building a lifestyle brand out of it is something they, Dickies, and lattery Stan Ray have managed to do, redefining what workwear means in the modern era.

Where Carhartt WIP trumps the other two, and indeed most other brands is in its array of what I can only really call ‘bits’. Keyrings, accessories, you know what I’m on about don’t you? The stuff you like but don’t always decide to purchase until it’s no longer possible to. Good gifts, the type of thing you can heavily hint at being bought for your upcoming birthday or anniversary.

We’ve put together a little list of what we can currently find available anyway, just to save you the trouble, and to demonstrate what the fuck we’re actually on about.

Carhartt WIP Siberian Parka Keychain/Keyring
We’ve seen classic coats being applied to screen printed t-shirts by terrace brands in recent years, but few have gone the extra mile and celebrated the parka in keyring form. Carhartt have.
