Real workers don't leave home without first donning their Carhartts. The clothing company makes rugged overalls, flame-resistant workwear, outerwear, sweatshirts, sportswear, and pants favored by farmers and other hard-working people. Most of Carhartt's items, sold to men, women, and children, are made in US factories; the rest are produced in Canada and Europe. Besides its own shops, Carhartt's apparel is carried by major chains, including Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's and international retailers in North America, Europe, Japan, and Australia. The family of founder Hamilton Carhartt owns the firm, which was founded in 1889.
