Cintas Corporation, North America’s biggest uniform supplier, recently partnered with Carhartt to offer Carhartt gear in a uniform rental program.

In celebration of that partnership and in conjunction with the roll-out of a new product offered by the companies, the Are You Carhartt Tough? contest is now underway.

So, my first question was what is Carhartt Tough?

Strong, dependable, resilient and rugged, all words that describe both GRIT and Carhartt.“We describe ‘Carhartt Tough’ as someone who's strong, dependable, resilient and rugged... All of which are characteristics of the Carhartt brand.  With that said, people may consider themselves to fit these characteristics for many different reasons, so we encourage any and all to enter the contest ... men and women, young and old, with different backgrounds, professions and interests.” That response, coming from Ashley Hallmark of Rubin Communications Group, immediately piqued my interest.

Strong, dependable, resilient and rugged – those words are part of what GRIT is all about. The name GRIT itself, to me, speaks to the resiliency of rural life and country work, and Carhartt apparel has long played a role in that work.

MW - Logging is quite the measuring stick for quality. I'd imagine MM would thoroughly enjoy a trip to the Stihl Timbersports Series. Best of luck!

Okay, all my Mountain Man wears are Carhartt and he is tough but so are there clothes. He has had the same ones for years and they've stood up to logging, saw milling and farm work so I'm off to enter him. Thanks for the heads up!
