On this day in 1920, the 19th amendment was passed, securing the right of American women to vote. It’s a proud day for the nation. With the desire of continuing the path towards total equality in mind, the hashtag, #AskHerMore, has been trending this week, referencing the interviewing tactics at award shows. The only question most women on the red carpet are asked is “Who are you wearing?” Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy fashion, and designers deserve their due, but what about the woman wearing the clothes? Are we missing the big picture? She’s not winning an award for most awesome outfit. She’s being recognized for her work.
With Crafted in Carhartt, clothes and work gear are a quality-constructed and well-designed means to an end. You should feel happy, comfortable, and beautiful as you work, and you should have clothing that helps you get the job done. When you wear Carhartt, you don’t have to worry about the rain, or the cold, or even the heat. These clothes are sturdy. They can take a beating. Carhartt has that covered so you don’t have to worry about it. Wear our clothes so you can focus on what’s really important, your work. Be it carving, sculpting, painting, metalwork, urban farming, caring for horses, tending gardens, demolition, fixing cars, building a company, or building a building.
