    My mind was completely blown when I saw the difference between American Carhartt and European Carhartt.

    European Carhartt - solid workwear brand, great outerwear, does collabs with APC and other solid brands.
    American Carhartt - cheap clothes for rednecks.

    US carhartt is much better quality than EU carhartt. Where the first really is workwear is super durable fabrics, the latter is so so streetwear. Still wear it though...


    Weird threat however, isnt brand like Acne, Our legacy and so forth a bit nicer ?

    How about other brands that aren't really talked about here like Hope, Pringle, Norse Projects, Minimum, etc.

    I wish s2a would get more play here. I realize they're somewhat like an Acne but some of their pieces are just awesome. Great fits, great pieces. Just a fun brand to own.

    Hope are nice, and would really suit alot of SF dudes, sort of a fashion-y military/work/whatever look. I was on the verge of buying a pair of shorts from them the other day..

    the wire shirt from surface 2 air is one of my favorites. great stuff. forgot bleu de paname, which I think is a bit hit or miss, sixpack france (nice sweatshirts and cardigans), and a great sneaker company that is also ethical...veja.

    You're a fucking tool. Carhartt is obviously workwear for people that work labour jobs. They figured that European kids liked that look so they launched a more wearable line there. Dickies did the same thing.
