Carhartt Twill Work Jacket : Effective and Stylish

In a world that’s increasingly obsessed with newer, faster, and lighter, it’s refreshing when a classic just can't be improved. My Carhartt Twill Work Jacket is a perfect example.

It's simple, it's functional, and it's durable. It keeps the cold, wind, and rain out when I’m going from here to there. And it looks perfectly civilized--and even stylish--while doing it. My mid weight Carhartt Twill Work Jacket is exactly what I want from a jacket on a day-to-day basis.

The Carhartt Twill Work Jacket is made out of rugged polyester/cotton blend canvas-type fabric and has a quilted lining. The material is stain-repelling, too. It has two large front pockets, which are angled just right for me to easily stuff my hands into them on cold days. There’s also an inner pocket that can be a secure and handy place to keep my wallet or cell phone.

I haven’t really had my Carhartt Twill Work Jacket (Mid weight/Lined) long enough to see how it’ll age, but I’ve known several people who’ve had this same jacket and various Carhartt products for years and they always hold up. Combine that with a relatively affordable price, and this jacket is a bargain.

Available in: Black, Dark Gray, Khaki, and Navy in men’s sizes S to 5XL (also available in "tall" in some sizes.) Carhartt also makes jackets for women.

Bottom Line: This is the classic “every day” jacket. I really like it's simple style.--A.S. (May 2012)
