Hard Work

Sonntag, 23. September 2012


Dear people at Carhartt,

for about 12 years I have been buying Carhartt jeans. If I remember correctly I bought the W'Urban pants (three times), the W'Miner pants (two times) and the W'Slim pants (at least four times). The Slim pants turned out to be the ideal incarnation of a jeans: not too tight, not too loose, heavy denim, great cut, no crazy dies or washing. I bought them in grey, black and blue. I wore them in Germany, Netherlands, America, on Tenerife, Iceland and in China. They were my favourite for years.

So I was a bit shocked, when I wanted to buy a new pair of Slim pants and had to discover, that the model had been apparently taken out of the Carhartt product line. I tried stores in Berlin, Amsterdam, Cologne and Braunschweig, as well as online and even was hoping for 2nd hand on eBay, but no luck whatsoever: the Slim pants for women were gone.

As I happen to be a Graphic Designer, I am quite aware of brands and branding. I personally don't 'like' a lot of brands. But what I can say is 'I heart Carhartt'! I love the no-nonsense attitude, the close link to work wear, and the classic approach. Over the years I also bought two Carhartt jackets – they never look outdated. Nobody on the market has that sort of clothes for men as well as women.

So my first thought was: if the Slim pants disappeared from the product line, I just buy another Carhartt jeans. So I went to the store to fit them all, but I didn't fell in love with any of your other women's jeans: they were too tight, the denim was thin and there wasn't a single model without elastane. So far I haven't bought Carhartt pants again, which makes me quite sad. In my desperate search for a true pair of jeans I turned to Levi's, but I don't like them quite as much.

So my questions are:
1) Am I doomed to wear skinny stretch jeans for the years to come?
2) Do you happen to have some of the old Slim Pants for women somewhere in your storage? If so, I would be happily buy a box full! My size is 27x32.

I hope you get back to me!
Sincerely yours,

Your fan
