The Sandstone Mock-Neck Vest is one of the Carhartt’s most popular women’s items. I blame it on the sherpa lining. Who doesn’t love a good vest snuggle? The new Crafted in Carhartt team decided to rock their Sandstone 5 different ways. Let’s take a look and get some vest-spiration!
“I love the vest because it works so well across seasons. I bought my first one six year ago and I still get complements on it. It’s great when I’m working on a project going back and forth between indoors and out and it’s perfect when you have a friend who needs help moving apartments during a January snowstorm.” -Laura
“I love to wear the Sherpa lined vest because it is a great extra layer to really keep you warm, yet still look cool. It easily fits under a jacket and then looks great on its own. I love pairing it with a flannel to complete a cozy winter look.” -Lauren
“I chose the camo-printed vest because I loved the colors that you’re able to pair with it. The Sherpa-lining was an added bonus! I have so many plain sweatshirts and sweaters that I could’ve easily thrown underneath this, but today I wore it with the Hayward Zip Front Hoodie in Indigo Heather.” -Molly
“For a crafter who constantly has a dremel buzzing in the background, I have to wear sturdy clothes when I work. If you’ve ever seen a Sandstone, you know it’ll hold up to whatever comes its way. Gotta love this Mock Neck Vest because it keeps you warm and allows full range of motion.” -Jennifer
“This vest is a great addition to my winter wardrobe for a few reasons! The drop-tail hem in the back gives me a little more coverage when I’m wearing leggings on a lazy day, and also makes the vest look a bit more modern. The pockets are big enough to hold my cell phone, and I can put it in the interior pocket as well so it’s more secure.” -Taylor
I know a lot of y’all have one of these vests sitting in your closet at home. The Crafted in Carhartt team wants to see how you style it. Email a picture of yourself in your gear to (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you might see your photo featured on the blog!
Winter storm Jonas has been one heck of a doozy. Like most acts of nature, Jonas doesn’t care if you’re prepared or not. What does that mean for you? It’s time to stock up on wood, get that shovel ready, and salt your driveway and sidewalks.
This is Samantha Banks Schefman. She’s a curator, jewelry designer, co-founder and deputy director of Playground Detroit. Samantha is an incredibly talented jewelry designer with a great eye for fashion. That means she’s gonna look cute even when she’s shoveling snow. Her top pick from the Carhartt winter essentials is the Camo Active Jac. She paired it with the ever so popular Watch Hat, the figure flattering 1889 Slim Fit Double Fronts, and the cozy Quilts Glove.
The winter of 2015 has been a fierce one to be sure. Regions unfamiliar with snow have been pelted with it, and those already accustomed to snow have put up with it to an even greater degree. I’ve been reading The Farmer’s Almanac, learning about today in weather history.
This day in 1918, a car crossed frozen Penobscot Bay, Maine.
In 1952, an ocean storm hit Cape Cod and Nantucket, with winds of 61 mph.
In 1980, Norfolk, Virginia received 13.7 inches of snow.
In 1989, the temperature in Jacksonville, Florida plummeted to 24°F.
In 2008, San Antonio,Texas temperatures reached 92°F.
And in 2011, the temperature rose to 103°F in Laredo, Texas.
It’s easy to forget the times in our past when the weather has caught us off guard. The best thing is to always be prepared, come snow or high water. That’s why I like my Quick Duck® Jefferson Jacket. It’s water repellent and constructed with 3M Thinsulate material. Whether it’s snowing or pouring rain, you’ll stay dry and warm.
It’s no secret that many houses scattered across the city of Detroit lie in ruin from disuse, vandalism, and fire. Abigail Murray and the folks down at Afterhouse think those lots have a higher calling than eternally falling to pieces.
A few years ago a fire ravaged 3347 Burnside, transforming what was once a home into a pile of smoldering bricks. Rather than leaving the land fallow, the Afterhouse crew finished the demolition and rebuilt a greenhouse in the old foundation. The heat of the earth inside the under-structure of an old house dramatically expands the growing potential of the lot without the use of any additional energy. It also allows for growth in the dead of winter.
Amidst the rubble, artists, construction workers, contractors, and members of the community have banded together to let their greenhouse phoenix rise from the ashes.
