Streetwear Vs Workwear
Comparing the differences ...
Workwear is designed to last; streetwear normally isn't. With workwear, the quality of the fabrics and stitching is guaranteed to last by the manufacturer and you'll get a repair or replacement should something go wrong ...
Many workwear items come with lifetime guarantees!
At Rugged & Tough, we sell quality workwear, not streetwear because we know that streetwear is a false economy. It doesn't last anywhere near as long, and it doesn't protect like best in class workwear can.
"You owe it to yourself to invest in quality workwear!"
Let's give you an example. Fitter's trousers. Whether your fitting tiles, wooden flooring, or carpeting then you're going to be up and down all day standing, kneeling, standing then kneeling again.
If you do that all day in normal streetwear jeans, not only are your knees going to take a battering, the stitching on your jeans is going to start to fray and the material will split over time.
So one pair of jeans becomes two pairs, then three, then four, and that's more expensive than investing in one pair of quality fitter's trousers from a best in class workwear brand that's going to last you for years and years.
"And we haven't even mentioned the comfy knee protectors you can get for them!"
If you're a welder, that streetwear fleece you bought isn't going to protect you from sparks. A truck driver needs a jacket to keep warm as well as being reflective so other people can see them in the gloom of a British winter. And if you're working in a team the fabric of those streetwear polo shirts could get damaged as you put your brand on them.
Workwear designers are relentless. They include the best materials, the best designs and always listen to the people that use the gear they design; people just like you use their kit every day and know what works and what doesn't.
"And many workwear items come with lifetime guarantees!"
If a seam goes or the material splits, you'll find out pretty quickly that an immediate repair is in the offing or a brand new garment is winging its way to you so you can carry on working in warmth and comfort.
Here are some great reasons to choose quality workwear:
Blaklader has just released their X1900 craftsman's trousers using Cordura® Nyco. As strong as steel and as soft as cotton, the material is effectively impossible to wear out.
Carhartt is going from strength to strength with their classic workwear gear as well as their personal protective equipment and high-quality countrywear. If you work or play outdoors, Carhartt can keep you warm, comfy and dry.
Tranemo only works with inherent flame retardant fabrics which means the protection cannot be worn away or washed out of the fabric. The protection offered by the Tranemo workwear lasts for the lifetime of the garment.
Jobman are so confident with their workwear that they have improved their guarantee to now include shrinkage as well as seams and zippers.
At Rugged & Tough we know the quality of our workwear brands, we've seen their manufacturing processes ourselves and we've got many satisfied customers, just like you, who can attest to the durability of the clothing they've purchased from us.
"From Blaklader, Carhartt and Tranemo to Jobman, Orn and U-Power, we'll always recommend the right workwear for the right job!"
And remember, we offer an in-house branding service so if you just want to kit yourself out or your entire team, then we can put your logo on any workwear you buy from us. Call us on 01525 211488, click here to visit our website or come on in and see us at our brand new store in Milton Keynes.
