The Pender Coat is a great example of how Carhartt Work in Progress takes the legendary workwear company in a fresh, new direction. A 100% nylon diamond quilted jacket, the Pender Coat features a waxy water repellent shell along with a double-way zip closure. Whether under a coat or on its own, the jacket (available in black, navy, orange, and camo) will add a nice bit of texture to a fall wardrobe.

Visit Carhartt WIP where the Pender Coat is priced at $163.

The violence and destruction of property surrounding the 2011 London riots was devastating. Notably, a laundry list of independent record labels including Warp, Domino, Mute, 4AD, and XL lost valuable inventory when the 200,000 square-foot PIAS warehouse was burned to the ground. Countless retail shops endured days of looting and vandalism. During the mayhem, photographer Petra Valenti snapped the dramatic photo above of a few looters robbing a Carhartt store while a bright red sports car burns in the foreground. The designers at Carhartt, likely drawn to the gravity of the photo, have included the image on a new tee for its SS 2013 line. [via]
