Recently, we trekked to Detroit for a weekend with the folks at Carhartt to explore their new "Full Swing" garment technology. As sponsors of the Detroit Tigers' grounds crew, we hopped on the chance to test out the brand's latest offerings on the field itself before the game.

First up is the Sandstone Jacket, which looks and feels quite similar to a classic Carhartt silhouette with defining elements in the details. At the heart of "Full Swing" is improved mobility and range of motion without the bulk of a traditional work jacket. After studying working professionals that actually wear Carhartt on the job, the design team reconstructed the jacket from the ground up to function on an entirely different level. Through this study, Carhartt quickly realized one can achieve a full range of motion through construction techniques like a multi-layer back panel, articulated elbows and gusseted under-arm sections.

Carhartt are a rare breed among clothing companies - few labels have been able to master the art of maintaining cultural relevance while staying true to their roots. Although sporadically picked up by various subcultures and fashion movements, the label has always kept their original target in mind: the worker. From the railroad tracks to the spotless racks at retail juggernauts like Barneys New York, Carhartt have been navigating multiple markets for 125 years straight.

See our exploration of Motor City above and pick up the Full Swing Sandstone Jacket directly through Carhartt.
