"Eight hundred of the jackets were given to 'taste makers and people seen in

all the right places,' said Monica Lynch, the president of Tommy Boy. 'It

took off immediately.' And then Tommy Boy started its own clothing line. WHY

NOW: After building a reputation literally on the backs of oil riggers and

'gangsta' rappers, Carhartt jackets are increasingly turning up in places

like Barneys New York and fashion runways." ("THING; The Carhartt Jacket", NYT).
