CARHARTT have long been the name for dependable, durable, rugged work wear. When it’s time to keep warm and look cool, there’s no better option. In those cases where one would want something a a bit more lightweight, never fear, we at METROPOLIS have collected a fine selection of CARHARTT SWEATSHIRTS for you. They’ve always been popular on the street, but since Kanye West was spotted walking around in one or two items, they’ve gone straight to the top. Kick off the new year in a Carhartt sweatshirt and you’ll be ready for anything!

A staple of the 1990’s, the long sleeved rock shirt adorned many a grunge kid and any skateboarder worth his salt. Lately, this tradition seems to have been taken over by the metal crowd, but we at Metropolis Vintage have been collecting these for some time now and think the public is ready for them once again! We’ve unearthed a huge batch which we’ve just put out on the racks so you can replace the short sleeve version with the longer, winterized model.
