Spring is right around the corner, so it is time to start thinking about some new gear for the new season, and since this isn’t your average men’s style column, you get to read about clothing that is actually useful, that you can wear, that is comfortable. Amazing concept, no? That’s why you need to know about some of the new stuff Carhartt has planned.

Carhartt continues their quiet quest of innovation with their Force line of clothing, and this year, like last, it looks like they’ve hit the nail right on the head. The Force lineup is an interesting blend of active and work wear that incorporates Carhartt’s knack for incredibly well constructed clothes that are meant to last a long, long time with lightweight, but no less rugged, materials. The end result is stylish, masculine, versatile clothing that is as good for work as it is for play. In other words, clothing for the real world. Here’s some of what’s in the pipeline for Spring 2014:

  • Force Equator Jacket - This jacket is designed to keep you dry, warm and comfortable with its Storm Defender waterproof breathable membrane, Rain Defender durable water repellent finish, and Fast Dry technology that helps wick away sweat and fight odor.
  • Force Delmont Pique Polo - Equipped with Fast Dry and Stain Breaker technologies in a soft cotton pique weave that is at home in the office, down in the trenches, or out on the town.
  • Force Tappen Cargo Short and Pant - Cut from 7 ounce 100% ripstop fabric with a relaxed fit, gusseted crotch, copious and versatile pockets, the Tappen line, which includes the Fast Dry and Stain Breaker technologies, are designed to be durable, lightweight, and easy to live with.
  • Force Mandan Shirt - This lightweight, 72% cotton, 28% nylon button front shirt, with its generous front and rear vent panels, is designed to keep you cool,comfortable, and looking good all day long.

Pricing for the new Force lineup has yet to be announced, but you can expect it to be reasonable. Stay tuned for the upcoming reviews of these items in a few weeks. To see the rest of the Carhartt Force line of clothing, click here.
