About Carhartt, Inc.

Carhartt makes workwear clothing meant to last. The clothing company makes rugged overalls, flame-resistant workwear, outerwear, sweatshirts, sportswear, and pants favored by farmers, construction workers, and other hard-working people. Most of Carhartt's products, sold to men, women, and children, are made in US factories. The company also has operations in Mexico and Europe. The company operates about 30 retail shops in the US. Its apparel is also carried by major chains, including Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's and international retailers in North America, Europe, and Japan. The family of founder Hamilton Carhartt owns the firm, which was founded in 1889.

Strategy

Carhartt has continued to open new retail locations, seeking out neighborhoods with a large blue collar population. In 2019, the company opened its 30th retail store in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Carhartt has stores in 20 states in the US, the majority located in the Northeast and Midwest.  

The company is also expanding its European presence. It recently launched an e-commerce site serving consumers in all EU countries, greatly expanding Carhartt's global reach. The website will be serviced by the company's Netherlands-based distribution 

Carhartt has a following with younger consumers as skaters, rappers, and designers have embraced the brand. Collaborations have helped the company reach a wider audience. Recent collaborations included joining with streetwear label Stussy and retailer Dover Street Market for a capsule collection in 2019. The company also paired with surfwear brand Hurley in 2019 for a new clothing line.
