As a tradie, you know the immense stress and pressure your workwear goes through. No matter your type of work, you are likely working under tough conditions ‒ carrying heavy building materials, moving equipment around sites and even having to squeeze through tight spots. All of this can cause serious wear and tear on your pants, which is why you should buy for long-term use and not just price when shopping around for men’s work pants.
These are three factors to consider before buying yours.
Working as a tradie means you work long hours under strenuous conditions and your workwear needs to provide you with comfort to compensate for this, with fabrics that are not only safe but also easy-wearing. Your pants must fit well and allow for movement without feeling too stiff. You can feel the difference in pants with the stretch. Pants should loosen up a bit after your first few wears but not lose their structure or start to slack.
As much as you would like to be comfortable in your work pants, it is important to remember that they cannot have the same durability as joggers or training pants. Work pants are expertly woven to ensure they are hard-wearing and can take the impact of different situations. In addition, work pants need to protect you, and you can assess this by choosing between reputable brands and speaking to workwear experts.
Your work pants should not be like regular pants; they need to offer you value beyond comfort and durability. Look for features such as double-linings around the knees, long pockets and heavy-duty zips. These can make working on site easier, for example, when kneeling, carrying several small tools and avoiding your zips breaking because of pressure.
Even though buying men’s work pants seems like an easy enough task, these factors can help you make a better buy. Work pants are an investment and you should look for garments that will last a long period.
