An absolute classic Carhartt jacket made from 100% ring-spun Cotton Duck worn in the blockbuster film Interstellar by Matthew McConaughey.
"In the film McConaughey goes as far to invoke the most classically American of all work jackets: the sand colored Carhartt jacket.
If you've been living in the city too long, you should know that blue-collar workers wear these jackets across the country. To cut to the metaphorical chase here: these jackets are everything the American man aspires to be. They're tough as hell. They'll keep you extremely warm in the winter. They look good when dirty. They're good for a long day at work and also for a night at the bar after quitting time. They're unpretentious, masculine, and completely non-BS."

Cut in a shorter length than the Chore Coat so that users can wear it with a tool belt, this jacket was introduced over 40 years ago and today remains one of Carhartt's most popular styles. It was named Detroit Jacket in the late 1980s in honour of the company's first location.
Worn by the likes of Johnny Depp, Matthew McConaughey and Robert Pattinson, this fabulous jacket features:-
- Inside welt pocket
- Snap adjustable waist and cuffs
- Bi-swing back, for greater range of movement
- Corduroy top collar
- Triple stitched main seams
- Can be worn with an optional hood
Fabric: 12oz / 340g firm-hand 100% ring-spun cotton duck
Blanket lining in body
