DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Carhartt, America's premium work wear brand since 1889, today announced the Full Swing™ collection, designed with technology that allows workers to "Move like you mean it™." Carhartt enlisted the help of consumers to engineer new mobility features for the elbows, shoulders, underarms and side paneling.
"One of our core design principles at Carhartt is to develop apparel that provides solutions for hard-working people. If it doesn't meet their needs, we don't make it," said Alex Guerrero, Carhartt's general merchandise manager. "While developing Full Swing™, we visited hundreds of job sites and talked to thousands of men and women who use our products every day to learn how we could design a product that is comfortable and functional without compromising our signature style and durability."
Carhartt Full Swing™ products were designed with feedback from thousands of workers to solve the challenges they were having around fit and movement. The result is a breakthrough line of jackets, shirt jacs and pants that fit closer to the body while providing maximum range of movement to help workers move freely on the farm, construction sites and everywhere in-between.
Available in eight styles, the Full Swing™ collection includes features such as Mighty Back™ between shoulders for instant recovery, a Freedom Gusset™ under the arms for wider range of motion, Flex Elbow™ for less restriction and side stretch paneling for added mobility.
The new line of Carhartt Full Swing™ includes: Men's Sandstone Active Jac, Quick Duck® Overland Shirt Jac, Force Mandan Long-Sleeve Shirt, Sandstone Jacket, Rugged Flex® Jacket, Quick Duck® Cryder Dungaree and Women's Quick Duck® Norwich Jacket and Sandstone Winn Jacket.
The Carhartt Full Swing™ collection of apparel is available online at www.carhartt.com and select stores nationwide. To view the Carhartt Full Swing™ video, visit: Carhartt Full Swing™: Move Like You Mean It.
