One word: Carhartt. They’ve been manufacturing premium work clothing known for exceptional durability, comfort, quality of construction, and fit for 120 years.
I stopped in at Larson’s Printing today to get some gift ideas from Karin Larson. It’s a little known fact that Larson’s carries Carhartt. It’s a better known fact that this is “the” clothing for those folks on your list in their early twenties.
Karin told me that the Carhartt Work-Day Thermals are really popular right now. They’re thin, light-weight, can be worn under anything, and, yeah, they’re really warm.
She also has a very wide selection of the extremely popular (among those in their early twenties…and maybe thirties too) hooded jackets. They come with a life-time warranty on the zippers (very important) and in many choices of colors and finishes.
Then there’s the hard-core Carhartt clothing. Perennial favorites include the regular-weight clothing (which Karin commented are now made in women’s sizes too), the stocking caps, and the Merino wool socks.
Finally, in Northfield, we love our Raiders. Karin said they’ve got the lace-front sweatshirts, sport bags, and hats (which she noted make great stocking-stuffers) in stock and ready to go.
So, stop in at Larson’s Printing, ask for Karin, and say “Carhartt”.
