Workwear company Carhartt has added eight new women’s styles to its flame resistant (FR) line. The new assortment – which includes a jacket, a denim pant and canvas pant, a coverall, a woven shirt and three knit shirts – focuses on fabric and fit, while mirroring the sizing of Carhartt’s non-FR women’s styles.
Purpose-built for women working in the electric utilities and oil and gas industries, these functional products will change the way women dress anywhere FR products are necessary, says the manufacturer.
“During the process of creating this new line, we took into account the severe lack of variety in the women’s FR space,” said Melinda Fabry, merchandiser at Carhartt, overseeing the women’s FR line. “Many current women’s FR product offerings are simply loose adaptations of the men’s versions, but these styles were created specifically with hardworking women in mind. These eight new pieces provide women with a level of comfort that will undoubtedly improve their confidence in the workplace.”
The Hybrid Shirt in the attached image reflects the advancements in fit, function and style, offering women even more options to stay compliant, yet comfortable, said Carhartt.
