Carhartt :: clothes for work and play

I have absolutely been loving this warmer Fall weather. I just wish it would last a little longer!

After moving into the new house this September, I feel like we’ve been using every minute of this warm Fall weather to get work done outside. Tearing down old fences, cutting & stacking firewood, cleaning out landscaping, picking up the never-ending amount of walnuts from the lawn. And then there are the piles and piles of leaves! Oh those leaves!

Of course, Tim loves it! He finally gets to use all those tools and “toys” in the garage. Me….I enjoy it, for a bit. That’s when Tim likes to say, “Well, if you’d dress for the job, you’d enjoy it more.”

He’s lovingly referring to the fact that I’m out there working in my regular clothes and sneakers. Apparently I need to add a new section to my wardrobe!

Earlier this Summer I had the opportunity to meet the fabulous people from Carhartt at a conference where I was speaking. I had no idea that the Carhartt company was born and raised right here in Michigan! I also had no idea how extensive their product line is! Honestly, when I think of Carhartt, I only think of those brownish men’s jackets. The ones all those Northern Michigan boys would wear once Fall hit.

As a part of Carhartt’s “Hire These Pants” promotion this Fall, Tim received his very first pair of Carhartt jeans. Let me just say that Tim is pretty picky when it comes to jeans. Ok, he’s not exactly “picky”…he just has a hard time finding jeans that really “fit” him. But I was willing to give these a shot for him.

Low and behold, he loves them!


Available in a variety of styles and washes, the Carhartt jeans are durable enough for those tough work days but stylish enough to wear on a date night out. Maybe with just a quick wash in-between.


Of course, now that the weather is getting colder and colder (yuck), Tim has his eye on more stuff from Carhartt. And, with Carhartt carrying stuff for the whole family, I have a feeling I know where he’ll be doing his Christmas shopping this year. He’s pretty determined to get this family to dress for “the job” one way or another!
