All American workwear for those who laid down every nail and spoke and steel of our transcontinental railroad goes French chic? Is that even possible? With A.P.C., whose founder Jean Touitou has unparalleled resilience in his quest for perfection (he took ten years, to perfect, a jacket!) anything is possible. Sure, aside from making clothing, it may seem like A.P.C. and Carhartt have nothing much in common, but both labels actually share a deep appreciation for simplicity and quality, and really, what else does a good clothing label need?
As such, Jean Touitou lent his signature contemporary French chich touch to Carhartt, and workshirts and t-shirts are revamped with Japanese fabric, and a new logo “A.P.C.” with “C” being replaced by the orange Carhartt “C”. Aside from apparel, tasseled soft suede loafers, desert boots and printed totes that are so dope “The Pope Smokes Dope” are also a part of the upcoming collection.
Thanks to GQ for the lucky preview, and for the rest of us, we will perhaps be holding out breaths until they hit the racks.
