Owner Chris Pratt (not related to the Hollywood superstar, sadly) has been working in the industry since 1995 and has seen the increase and popularity of advanced workwear and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) go from strength to strength.

Chris says, "Having the correct workwear, especially branded clothing, can really help your crew members feel part of the team. It gives you a professional image which is important to clients, and protects you in the worst of conditions. Carhartt and Rugged & Tough help us achieve this goal."

Chris’s skill as an arborist is quite legendary and his ability to fell a tree in very tight spaces has to be seen to be believed. He has been a member of the STIHL Timbersports GB team, and enjoys Lumberjack sports in his spare time.

Chris says, "Gone are the days of tatty jumpers, worn out boots and ruined trousers. Tree companies have to provide the correct kit to employees and want to have a professional image."

We asked Chris if that meant we would see Arborists and Foresters on the catwalk soon? "Well, there maybe a few guys and girls that would do that, but I prefer the mud or tree branches under my feet!"

"Carhartt Workwear is Chris's gear of choice for his crew!"

Tough trousers, heavy duty jackets, thick cotton hoodies and much more. Carhartt Workwear is the ideal choice for people who work outdoors, who need to kit out their crew and present a professional image to clients.

And if you want your logos on your gear, the Rugged & Tough in-house branding service can help you, whatever the size of the order.

Do visit our website, come see us in-store just south of the Hockliffe lights on the A5 Watling Street, or give us a call on 01525 211488 and let's talk about the right workwear for your crew.

Until next time ...
