TGIF Shopping: Carhartt Work In Progress

Carhartt’s Work In Progress is having a moment as of late. When we say Carhartt you might be thinking of the mother brand associated with work staples, outerwear and 1990s skater culture, or the Carhartt who has outfitted American workers for more than 100 years. Work in Progress is basically like their cool adult cousin. In the last few years WIP has caught on with the more stylish among us with its clean-cut basics and better fits. Their jackets and other pieces make use of bolder colors and patterns more than ever before. Breaking from a work staple their jackets and other pieces have started to adorn heads and shoulders of the urban creative class in places like Williamsburg and Silver Lake.

The latest spring and summer collection includes some restyled basics including the introduction of their “Light Lux”, which is basically their version of your light weight summer hoodie, bomber jacket or vest. And they are made of 100 percent light-lux padded Jersey so they are super soft. The Spring/Summer 2015 Collection introduces new styles and fabrics, reworking the Detroit Jacket in suede, which you can see in the slide show above. Patterns and prints play a big part in the whole Carhartt WIP collection. They use some Camo Isle (not our favorite)- however – we do love their tropic prints in on their hoodie and shorts. Their subtle patterns on both tops and shorts are some top picks of ours for summer living. The Pender Liner seen above is a great example of both the subtle pattern and lightweight fitted materials that WIP offers. With more than 40 retail locations around the world you can visit a store or shop at their online store here.

If you pick any WIP for yourself don’t forget to tag us on instagram at @TheManualStyle and @CarharttWIP.

How to spot a fake Rolex: 3 dead giveaways
Don't get duped by a fake
The Rolex Perpetual 1908

There are endless options for you if you're the kind of guy who loves to invest in luxury watches for men. You can elect to go German with Steinhart or Hanhart, Japanese with brands like Seiko or Citizen, or French with watches like Breguet or Cartier. Of course, if luxury is what you are looking for, Swiss is the best way to go. It's the capital of premier watchmaking in the world and the watches from there span across the globe. Of all the Swiss brands (and the rest of the brands, for that matter), Rolex is the number one brand for people to invest in and shop for.

Of course, there is a flip side to being the most desired watch in all the world. Watchfinder CEO Arjen van de Vall commented in a Bloomberg article that Rolex fakes make up half of the counterfeit market, and they are getting harder to spot. "Rolex is the most aspirational luxury watch brand and the highest demand, hence, it's the most replicated," he said.
