Style and fashion aren’t necessarily the first things that spring to mind when thinking about safety and workwear. But thanks to the Diet Coke man, we have a reputation to uphold and these days the range of clothing, footwear and accessories on offer isn’t just highly functional, they’re packed full of nifty design features, high quality materials and detailing to make even the most workwear weary sit-up and take note.
So while you might be musing over the many choices on offer, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite joggers, jackets, and gilets (amongst other items) that you can wear and work like a pro.
Dickies jackets and gilets
From soft shell jackets to waterproof gilets, Dickies offers modern styling in lightweight and versatile fabrics with many additional features that traditional work jackets don’t have. Its soft shell collection features multiple benefits including breathable, waterproof fabrics that include reflective qualities and added stretch for extra comfort.
Its popular Loudon Gilet is lightly padded for when you need an extra layer, but don’t want to compromise on freedom of movement. Offering modern styling with a contrast waterproof zip, it also features an internal mobile phone pocket and adjustable hem. Ideal for whether you’re out and about on site or working indoors.
If you’re after something a bit warmer, then take a look at the Dickie’s Stamford Puff Jacket. Available in either black and lime or grey and orange, it’s one of our favourite outerwear items here at Fixings – in fact it’s become a bit of a uniform! Extremely comfortable and durable, it provides warmth while having a slim, modern fit. And that’s not just a bunch of puff.
Shake that booty
There’s nothing better than a sturdy safety boot and here at Fixings and Powertool Center we stock a range of brands including Apache, DeWalt and Timberland Pro. Designed for demanding work, our boots are available with steel protection in a variety of styles and colours.
Hiker boots seem to be big business right now and the popular Apache Hiker Safety Boot is a fine example of modern styling ideal for all trades. With a water resistant upper layer, padded tongue and collar for added comfort, this steel toe capped, rubber soled ankle boot certainly means business.
The DeWalt Rigger Safety Boot is a durable and robust pull-on protective boot with a brown, full grain upper and padded cuff for added comfort. A great alternative to the hiker boot and an attractive option for construction sites.
For a more sporty look, check out the enviro-friendly Timberland Pro Hypercharge Textile Boot which is made with sustainable and recycled materials, including premium leather from a tannery rated silver for its sustainability.
