Carhartt WIP is pleased to announce its latest capsule collection, which sees it teaming up with US-based Jiu-Jitsu brand Hyperfly to create a series of custom Gis.
Fusing together both brands’ unique aesthetic, each Gi has been created in Carhartt WIP’s iconic duck fabric, with tonal stitch detailing and subtle co-branding. The Gi has been created in three colour-ways – navy, black and Hamilton brown. Carhartt WIP stores will exclusively stock the black colour-way, while the other two colour-ways will be available through Hyperfly channels.
Jiu-Jitsu is one of the oldest forms of Martial Arts known to man, originating more than 4,000 years ago from Buddhist monks from northern India. To protect their monasteries against invaders, the monks created a non-violent form of selfdefense against much larger and stronger opponents. Without kicking or punching, the monks were still able to defend themselves. This nonviolent technique traveled to Japan where it evolved to what is now Jiu-Jitsu, translated from Japanese, The Gentle Art.
The Carhartt WIP x HYPERFLY black Gi will be exclusively available at carhartt-wip.com and Carhartt WIP Store London Earlham Street, Carhartt WIP Store London SoHo, Carhartt WIP Store Manchester. The brown and navy colour-ways will be available from Hyperfly.
