For some time now, Carhartt's European licensee has been producing reinterpretations of the storied American brand's hard-wearing fabrics and garments in trimmer fits with a younger audience in mind. Instead of fuller fits with laborers in mind, the Carhartt Work In Progress guy was more likely to be found grinding rails in a park than putting his nose to the grindstone. Tapered work pants, duck canvas chore coats and trim button-downs come together with hiking-inspired sneakers and Carhartt's easily-recognizable acrylic beanies, resulting in a look that's one part off-duty, and one part men-at-work. The brand's online shop recently debuted here in the US so we poked around to offer up the items we think are worth checking out.

    Get up close and personal with the Carhartt WIP collection at the brand's New York shop in SoHo. 119 Crosby St., New York, NY 212.219.2934
