The American Way

Traditional workwear resurges this season, proving they actually do "make 'em like they used to."

Pin It

Call it “metro” backlash. For this
season, both long-established state-
side labels and modern menswear
designers went full-on rugged,
referencing utilitarian fare once
reserved for the blue-collar, on-
the-clock set. Those prone to style
nostalgia will be quick to scoop up
their many new takes on work-
wear staples—including raw denim
in classic Dockers dimensions,
trucker jackets and sturdy, lace-up
boots. Altogether, the trend reads
as an ode to the type of durable,
function-driven fashion established
by Levi’s and synonymous with
Carhartt—brands anyone dubbed
“metro” could rightly wear, though
they would definitely clash with the
accompanying man bag.
