If you are in the market for rugged workwear that is built to last seemingly forever, it’s quite possible you couldn’t do better than the Carharrt brand. And recently, it got even better.
Carhartt had gone overseas years ago to make some many of its products but has just re-introduced American-based construction with its Carhartt Made in the USA Line series designed in Dearborn, Michigan and manufactured in Kentucky and Tennessee. The company has been making this type of clothing since 1889 and I am so glad to see them rediscovering how important it is to manufacture their goods here in the USA. The company employs over 2,000 workers in Michigan, 900 of which are UFCW members.
The company’s clothing is not too expensive and is constructed to withstand the test of time even under heavy use. The Made in the USA line so far consists of jackets, pants, sweatshirts, and socks, and let’s hope this is only the beginning of Carharrt bringing back all manufacturing to the U.S.

I have recently discovered Sierra Trading Post, a discount shopping site that usually has a ton of Carharrt merchandise at really REALLY low prices. Some of it is seconds and some closeout, but the few items I have purchased have been well-worth the money spent. So next time you are looking for some tough workwear, check out the Carhartt Made in the USA Line either on their site or over at Sierra Trading Post. Let’s encourage the company to bring all of its manufacturing back to the USA!
