From hardwearing polos in technical fabrics to heavy duty jackets and gilets boasting advanced protective fabric treatments, the industrial workwear offering is becoming ever broader and more performance-oriented. We showcase the latest brandable options for the modern workplace
Pure Pro additions
This year B&C has expanded its Pure Pro Collection to include two new outerwear styles: the Shield Softshell Pro jacket (JUC42) and the Shelter Pro jacket (JUC41), a warm and durable heavyweight jacket. These new styles join the established Expert Pro bodywarmer (JUC40). The Pure Pro collection was designed specifically for the workwear market, combining weather protection with functional designs and comfortable fits. The new jackets feature multiple pockets, shoulder and elbow reinforcements, and durable zips, and are made from high-quality fabrics.
New Shoulder Patch Polo
Kustom Kit’s newest addition to the Classic Collection is the Shoulder Patch Polo (KK435). The polo features a triple-layer patch of wadding at the shoulders, adding protection for the wearer and increasing the garment’s lifespan. The brand’s Classic Collection has been designed with the demands of the workwear market in mind, and Kustom Kit says the Shoulder Patch Polo is especially well suited for those workers who regularly carry items such as timber or rope over their shoulder.
Safety first hi-vis styles
With industrial workwear, safety comes first, closely followed by durability and comfort, according to Uneek. The brand’s Hi-Vis Trouser (UC807), Sleeveless Safety Waistcoat (UC801) and High Visibility Bomber Jacket (UC804) all feature reflective tape to protect in poor light and adverse weather. The Hi-Vis Trouser is lightweight and features two front pockets, a fully elasticated waist and adjustable ankle, and the Sleeveless Safety Waistcoat has reflective banding strips, Velcro fastening and is available in bright orange or yellow.
