Carhartt WIP and Converse rework the Chuck 70 for SS19
Carhartt WIP has become infamous with incorporating military motifs into its collections over the years, something that has seen numerous subcultures repurpose military and workwear garments to create their own inimitable uniforms too.
For its first Chuck 70 iteration of the season, the canvas upper comes to life in a contemporary, reworked woodland camouflage print dubbed, ‘Camo Olive,’ with distinctive stitching.
The second, fashioned in a ‘Brown Duck’ canvas upper is offset by a square Carhartt WIP label on the tongue. Between the two styles, this release spans Carhartt WIP’s storied heritage and its contemporary, utilitarian approach to design.
