I married a corporate ladder climbing, fine suit wearing man. Then he dove off the corporate wheel. The fine suits and ties would no longer do for work attire. He asked me to buy him some “work clothes” when we relocated to his hometown and he started working alongside his father in their family owned and operated lumber yard and general contracting business.
It was July 2007. I promptly went online to order him his first five pairs of Carhartt pants. Through the past five plus years, Nathan has had his share of Carhartt pants, shirts and jackets. But recently Carhartt sent us what has become Nathan’s favorite Carhartt item. It’s the Carhartt Shoreline jacket, new for 2012.
It cuts the wicked wind of the North Dakota prairie and is waterproof. It is flexible and allows him to do his daily routine of work.
Nathan tends to always be warm. He was meant to live and work outside. But when I am shopping for him he reminds me he wants to maintain a professional look.
This jacket is a perfect solution. He commented to me that the Carhartt Shoreline jacket needs our business logo on it. He wants to order 50 of them for our contractors.
For now, it’s just Nathan loving his new Carhartt jacket. But I think the guys around the yard have noticed.
They might all be getting Carhartt Shoreline jackets themselves this year as gift from Nathan.
Why the smile after a long day of work? Nathan has summer plans for his Carhartt jacket.
Ahem…not all Carhartt’s are worn by men ya know! LOL I’m a Carhartt girl myself and that jacket looks like it might just be the ticket (hey I find that the guys stuff usually has more pockets). Wonderful pictures althought that almost looked like a photo “evil eye” in one. You’ve got a keeper there (and the hubby too)!
nathan makes a great model (as do you!) 🙂
Best part of that jacket is that they make a female version as well! Yay for carhartt women’s line…all styles of jeans & shirts!
I have the female version of that jacket & it is absolutely amazing! 🙂

Nice coat! I could use a nice spring/fall coat like this. I got dri-duck jackets for my customers last year, which I love to wear at events…this would make a nice professional work in the yard jacket.
