Lightweight is the new black for Spring 2014. Flyweight clothing is popping up everywhere, and Carhartt is on the leading edge of this burgeoning trend. Though they, of course, still make hefty workwear out of densely woven cotton duck to address the needs of those working construction and the like, Carhartt is branching out and exploring the potential advantages and versatility of lighter weight, high-tech garments.

This is most evident in their Force line of shirts, shorts, pants and jackets, and is exemplified by the Mandan Shirt you were introduced to right here in this column a few weeks back. The Force Mandan Shirt is cut from a 3-ounce ripstop material that is 72% cotton and 28% nylon which, once donned, almost feels like going shirtless. The subtly incorporated front and rear mesh-lined vent panels bolster this effect and help keep you comfortable when the temperature rises.

In addition to the light weight and breezy comfort of the Force Mandan Shirt, the ripstop material is easy to live with. In the past month, this shirt has not required any ironing, and thanks to Carhartt’s Stain Breaker technology, all food-related mishaps have washed clean away. Kudos to Carhartt for designing a shirt for the real, sometimes hot and dirty, world.

**Full disclosure: This shirt was provided at no cost for editorial consideration. To think otherwise would be silly.
