Carhartt makes tough, long lasting clothing.

Carhartt makes tough, long lasting clothing.

I was in Langkawi recently where I got this cheap Carhartt long sleeve shirt from a bundle shop. I can’t remember exactly where the shop is but I know its somewhere near PL Soon Huat warehouse. The shop is located directly opposite a small mosque.

I can say that I am terribly impressed with the condition of the shop. It was dusty, all the clothing look like its been hung on the shelves for ages. As I flip through the clothes, mosquitoes would fly off from the inner folds of the shirts. Sigh…what a sad sight.

Anyway, just when I was about to leave the shop, something caught my eye. It turns out to be a long sleeve Carhartt brand shirt. Like many other Carhartt products that I have seen, this particular shirt is made of tough material. Perhaps a little bit on the thick side, perhaps too warm to wear in Malaysia but I have not owned a Carhartt product before.

I tried the Carhartt shirt on and the size was just right for me. Unfortunately, the shop owner wrote using a permanent marker on the label ‘RM16’ as the price tag. I wished he hadn’t done that.

Aaaarghh…why did he write the price on the shirt !!

This Carhartt item has two front pocket. On the left pocket stitched on was a Carhartt tag. I normally see Carhartt using leather patches but this was definitely synthetic, which also means it’s a rather new piece of production item.

Carhartt use to use leather patches. This shirt however, uses a synthetic type of material.

The design is plain and simple. With no printing or any weird characters on the shirt, I just might make this piece a keepers.

Well, every item and brand has it’s uniqueness. I wish I had something unique to say about this shirt but unfortunately, its rather simple. With two front pockets and a tough material, who’s to complain.

I didn’t buy this shirt the first time I was there. It was during the second round of pit stop at the bundle shop that I decided to but the shirt. I would probably wear this Carhartt shirt once to a function and after that it would probably be sitting in the closet for a couple of months. After another ‘trying on’ session,  I finally withdrew my wallet and handed the guy RM10 for the shirt. Yup, I got it for RM10 , a good buy indeed.

Ini baju Carhartt I dapat kat satu kedai bundle di Langkawi. Rupa cantik, harga RM10 (runding dari RM16). Tak banyak kedai bundle kat Langkawi, yang ada pun kebanyakan tak elok. Stok lama, berdebu. Tengok pun ta lalu. Tapi dalam kedai-kedai macam ni selalu kita boleh dapat barang best. Tambah lagi yang jenis branded.
