Carhartt WIP has teamed up with Australian skate company PASS-PORT for it's latest collaboration collection for Spring/Summer '19. The Carhartt x Pass-Port collection has taken inspiration from the two companies shared ethos for hard work and building a sense of community, as well as sharing several team riders. Namely Josh Pall and Matlok Bennett-Jones.
Pass-Port Skateboards originate from Sydney, which is situated in the central northern region of Australia better known as the Northern Territory, or N.T. An area which is known for it's harsh and barren landscape, with vast dirt-red desserts and dusty lands. This backdrop became the central inspiration for the collaboration between Carhartt WIP and Pass-Port, with them adopting an earthy colour pallet that has been incorporated in to a selection of casual classics and utilitarian workwear pieces.
We have the Pall Pant in Bottle Green Rinsed which are a loose fitting carpenter pant, featuring an embossed label in all black on the back pocket with the Carhartt x Pass-Port co-branded logo. One of our favourite pieces from the line is the Carhartt x Pass-Port Polo in both Black/Stripe and White/Stripe, this is a relaxed fitting woven polo shirt with a vertical thin stripe running through the material. It also features an embroidered label on the left breast with the co-branded Carhartt x Pass-Port logo in Black and Gold.
There's also a nice re-working of Carhartt's classic train carriage logo in flocking embroidery on the Carhartt x Pass-Port Thank You Sweatshirt in Bottle Green, coming on a heavy weight sweatshirt and signed off with a subtly embroidered "C" logo at the bottom of the sleeve. This logo also features on the Pass-Port Cap in Black, and like the Thank You Sweat it features an embroidered Carhartt x Pass-Port co-branded logo on a formless 5-panel snapback. And to accompany the cut & sew line there's also a Carhartt x Pass-Port deck series with Northern Territory themed graphics.
The Carhartt x Pass-Port collection goes live 00:01am (B.S.T) Thursday 23rd May
