Found 1st Feb 2014
50% off a range of clothing and other items.

Ok, so it's still quite pricey for a lot of stuff. But if you like Carhartt gear then this is a great opportunity to buy some of their stuff.

* I couldn't find an end date listed anywhere on the site for this sale, if anyone notices it and wants to update me feel free.

I bought myself the new jacket I'd had my eye on for a while, half the regular price

Carhartt stuff is ace. Hot.

Hardly a sale. You can get much better brands for this price.

I know what you mean about price, but this is the cheapest I've seen their stuff.

A pretty big range is half price, and "better" really depends a lot on taste. The European Carhartt WIP is a fashion brand 1st, with a utility edge to it, not to be confused with the U.S based Carhartt work-wear brand.

I personally don't vote hot or cold on items I know I am not into, but that might just be me.

Their trousers/jeans are really hard wearing and last for years, as it most of the rest of their stuff tbh. Buy quality once or rubbish several times over.

Iv been buying Carhartt workwear for 2 decades. I stopped buying the European stuff about 7/8 years ago as the quality dropped as it branched into 'street wear' & stopped importing it from the USA and making it in Pakistan.

I get my stuff now sent from America even with tax & p&p its cheaper & far superior than the European stuff.

Most of the American gear is made in Mexico were as I think the European is Asian.

The quality of there products is still very good compared to other clothing brands and similar prices.

I know what you mean and I've been a little afraid ordering from the states due to the import tax etc. can you please tell me where you are ordering from? is it Carhartt official american site or are you buying from another US stockist?

Thanks

Well ... bit of an issue here.

I was using Sierra Trading but then about 6 months ago they said Carharrt had put a block on selling their stuff to Europe. They are marked US Sales only now on site.

You CAN get round this using a parcel forwarding service (and maybe lose the tax?) but I haven't tried it yet. Sierra actually recommended it to me but I can't remember the name of it.

Regarding quality. Iv got Carharrt tee shirts 4 years old still holding shape and wearable. VERY heavy cotton.

Americans simply don't put up with terrible quality like we do. They would reject clothing we happily accept.

Dickies is 'ok' and a next best for me but you can compete with Carharrt I don't think iv ever thrown out a pair of jeans! Not that I can remember.

I have found the Carhartt WIP clothes I have bought to be quite different from the US Carhartt work wear. The style and cut of WIP is a lot more to my tastes. I bought a few of the US t shirts and they were like you said, really heavy cotton, but I found the quality of the print on it to be a bit rubbish. Also watch out if you are ordering from the US, I bought medium and got something more like an XXL. I have always found WIP t shirts and jackets to be great quality and really comfortable too, even if they are a bit pricey.

But I already said it, they are two different companies. One is fashion oriented and the other work wear.

Thats another reason I can't get away with the European stuff. Tiny fitting.

I am a XXL or XXXL I dont even think the European stuff comes in XXXL and the XXLs are sometimes very small.

I'm confused.

Are people saying that the stuff you buy from Carhartt WIP for the Uk is too big or too small?
