Carhartt introduced its first blockbuster product—the bib overall—in 1889. After some early failures, Hamilton Carhartt, the company’s founder, sought out railroad workers and asked them directly what they wanted in their work clothes. From that point on, sales of the new purpose-built overalls took off.
More than a century later, Carhartt remains famous for its readiness to do what it takes to deliver quality and value to customers all over the world. In the digital-first era, Carhartt focuses not only on the company’s premium workwear offerings but also on optimizing all the systems, from supply chain to eCommerce, which connect Carhartt and its customers.
