Carhartt x ’47 are two family-run companies, from two of the toughest sports towns in America: Detroit and Boston (respectively). With infinite passion in our roots and crafts –– durable workwear and premium sportswear –– we joined forces to celebrate the hardest working fans. The ones that outwork and outroot the rest; dusk or dawn, win or lose.
When your craft is powered by relentless physical demand, durability is a must. It’s almost as if you become unbreakable. This same tenacious spirit bonds the hardest workers and the proudest fans with their industries and hometowns.
A bond so strong, it’s like family.
The OUTWORK x OUTROOT gear was built for this bond –– combining elements of the most recognizable workwear on earth with iconic team insignias of the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox. Headwear in this assortment includes ’47’s classic silhouettes, like the ’47 CLEAN UP and ’47 FRANCHISE, which feature Carhartt’s signature duck material. The assortment will also include knits, a heavy cotton pocket tee, and a midweight hoodie.
The OUTWORK x OUTROOT collaboration drops this Friday, 4/7 (one of our favorite days of the year) at the Tigers’ home opener — the first of a 4-game homestand against the Red Sox. Gear will be available in-store @ Comerica Park, Fenway Park, Carhartt’s company stores in Detroit and Boston, ’47 Boston (286 Newbury St. in Boston) and online exclusively from Carhartt or ’47.
Throughout the MLB season, Carhartt x ’47 will uncover stories from diehard fans who work the early shift, brave the elements, carry the load, steer the ship and risk their lives for the people and regions they love. When it comes to brands like Carhartt x ’47, hard work and hometown pride is in the DNA. So this one is an ode to you: the hardworking fan.
