Carhartt Jeans Newel Pants Blue

Carhartt WIP Newel Pants: Denim Duo Drops

The inclusion of Carhartt in Aphrodite’s vast denim range is not one to be taken lightly; Featuring brands such as Edwin and Nudie, only the best jeans can be admitted onto our shop floor.

But why do Carhartt WIP Jeans make the cut?

Carhartt’s Work in Progress range is a fusion of the brand’s origins in rugged workwear, and their contemporary take on fashion. So it’s a no-brainer that they have taken their approach to jeans. Oozing with style, the Carhartt Newel Pants are crafted from a Poly-Cotton blend that increases durability, whilst keeping that soft denim feel. The button fly houses subtle Carhartt branding and contrast stitching adds a nice hint of colour. The jeans are finished off with a Carhartt patch logo: a logo synonymous with quality.

How do they fit?

Carhartt’s Newel Pants opt for a relaxed tapered fit, creating a more laidback, casual look. They run true to size and come in a regular length (32″).


How can I take care of my Carhartt Jeans?

Aphrodite advises that you don’t wash your denim! Washing a good pair of jeans (like these) can ruin the material and decrease their lifespan. If your pants are marked, first try rubbing them with a damp cloth. If they smell opt for airing them on your clothesline. However, if you absolutely must wash them, Carhartt advises you to do so inside out on a 40-degree wash.

How should I style them?

Carhartt’s Newel Pants are unbelievably versatile. You can wear them as seen above, with an overshirt and boots for more of a rugged worker look. Or choose a graphic tee and smart trainers for a more casual day-to-day look. Whatever you wear with these jeans, they will transform your style and elevate your look.

What is Taylon Fabric?

As we all know, CP Company are no strangers to creating a masterpiece material with technical and high standard features, and their Taylon Fabric is a favourite here at Aphrodite. Crafted by tangling mono-filament yarns through a high pressure air stream, however the tangling effect is less visible and the Taylon L garments show a much more cotton-like appearance.

Initially, these Taylon fabrics were developed with the intentions of providing a matt and non-reflective nylon to the military, to suit camouflaging purposes. But now a favourite for everyday wear thanks to its water resistance, perfect for outdoor walks, or even just the everyday English weather, the Taylon fabric has what it takes to take you through the days comfortable and satisfied. Although providing a warm and protective fit, the Talon L still allows for breathability and comfort due to its finer nylon Taslan fabric which is used, meaning this coat is perfect for walking and everyday activities where movement is needed, but also perfect to pair with less layers when the weather starts to take a brighter turn during spring.

CP Taylon L Shirt

The Taylon L fabric is seen in action through the Taylon L Shirt in Nugget gold, dressing the overshirt in the technical Taylon fabric with outstanding features and a radiant yellow colourway, providing a resilient and opaque finish that has been garment dyed for increased depth and intensity throughout.
