Who are Carhartt?

Explore our full range of Carhartt products for wholesale at Vintage Wholesale Supply. Carhartt, established in 1889 by Hamilton Carhartt in Detroit, Michigan, started with the mission to produce durable workwear for labourers. The brand's first product was a pair of heavy-duty overalls, designed to meet the demands of railroad workers and other manual labourers. This commitment to quality and durability quickly earned Carhartt a reputation as a reliable workwear manufacturer

Over the decades, Carhartt has expanded its product line and global reach. The company introduced innovative features like triple-stitched seams and high-quality duck canvas fabric, ensuring long-lasting garments. Carhartt's workwear became popular not only among workers but also in various subcultures, including skateboarding, graffiti, and hip-hop communities. This crossover into fashion was further solidified with the launch of the Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) line in 1989, which introduced a more fashion-focused approach without losing the brand's rugged identity.

In the 1990s, Carhartt's popularity surged as it was embraced by influential hip-hop artists and featured in music videos and performances. Collaborations with streetwear brands like Supreme and A.P.C. further cemented Carhartt's status in the fashion world. Today, Carhartt is recognized not only for its workwear but also as a staple in street style and urban fashion


Carhartt's impact on fashion is significant due to its ability to blend functionality with style, making its products appealing across various demographics. The brand continues to innovate while honouring its roots, providing durable and stylish clothing that remains relevant in both workwear and fashion markets.

Who are Dickies?

Dickies was established in 1922 in Fort Worth, Texas, by C.N. Williamson and E.E. "Colonel" Dickie. Initially, the company focused on producing durable workwear such as denim bib overalls for ranchers and farmhands. During World War II, Dickies produced millions of uniforms for the U.S. military, which bolstered its reputation for quality and durability. Post-war, the company expanded internationally, establishing a presence in Europe and the Middle East by the 1950s

A significant milestone was the introduction of the 874® work pant in 1967. Known for its durability and comfort, the 874 became a staple in workwear and remains one of Dickies' most popular products to this day. The brand continued to grow throughout the decades, adapting to various industries and expanding its product range.

Impact on Fashion: Dickies' transition from functional workwear to a fashion statement began in the 1980s and 1990s when the brand was embraced by various subcultures. Hip-hop artists and skaters, particularly in Southern California, adopted Dickies for its durability and straightforward style. Icons like members of N.W.A., and later celebrities such as Gwen Stefani and Justin Timberlake, popularized the brand in mainstream culture.

The brand's influence grew as it became synonymous with streetwear and youth culture. The versatility and rugged aesthetic of Dickies' clothing appealed to a wide audience, making it a staple in both work and casual wear. Today, Dickies continues to innovate while maintaining its core values of durability and practicality. The brand is a favourite among modern fashion enthusiasts and continues to collaborate with various designers and brands to stay relevant in the fashion industry.

Dickies' legacy in fashion is marked by its seamless blend of functionality and style, making it a timeless icon in both workwear and streetwear.
