HAMILTON CARHARTT JEANS - MID 80'S

This ad for Hamilton Carhartt is from 1984.
With their factory based in North Isla Street, I think it's fair to say their denim products were aimed more at the workplace rather than the catwalk.
However, as you can see, they made a range called Huskie Jeans. Although I'm not familiar with these, I was wondering if they ever became the choice favoured by Dundee's young trendies, or were they the 80's equivalent of Johnny X'ers?!!
