The Only USA Made Carhartt Jackets

Fall 2012 sees 5 exclusive USA made Carhartt jackets with each color of these jacket lines solely made in the United States (contact us for pricing).

This is a big move on Carhartt Clothing’s part to bring manufacturing of this iconic American brand back to US soil. We’ll refrain from making any claims as to the motivations behind this announcement and patiently wait for their proposed press release next week. Let’s all stay tuned!

We do still have our concerns over whether or not there is a strong union presence in each and every one of the US factories cutting and sewing the above mentioned American jackets. When checking into the availability of union made for the USA options we as distributors get a flat response: the union label for any particular product cannot be verified until the product is physically in hand. This is unfortunate as Ethix cannot vouch for any specific American union-made Carhartt item in advance.
