Carhartt have been making these beanies since 1987. Originally designed as a workwear essential they soon became a go-to favourite for anybody when the temperature drops.
So what's in a name? Well, apparently they are called a "Watch" beanie because this style of hat was issued to sailors on "watch" during WW2. Every day is a learning day - and we were told that from one of our customers on instagram (see - social media can have some positives!)
The Carhartt Watch Beanie is made from thick acrylic yarn - meaning this hat is a great warm option for the colder months. Soft to the touch, the stretchy rib knit creates a stay-put fit.
This is a slightly different, updated, version to the 'Carhartt Classic Watch beanie' (which we've been wearing for years). Purely an aesthetic difference - this one has a Carhartt leather logo patch in a matching colour to beanie.
