Workwear overalls come in a great range of styles and brands from many of the leading brands, but why wear them in the first place. Here are a few reasons that make them an ideal choice whether you work inside or outside, and here at Brookes we have all of the best quality overalls to choose from, so whether you are a builder or a painter we have the right garment for you.

If you are working in wet or dirty conditions you should wear protective overalls as a matter of course as they help to keep other clothing clean and dry. At the end of the working day you can simply step out of the overalls without any paint, oil or dirt on your normal clothing.

When outside overalls add a layer of protection against the prevailing weather conditions, so depending on the specific overall you are adding a layer of warmth against the cold or a waterproof layer against the rain. These types of products are available in a range of fabric weights so are ideal for the British climate. Take a look at the Dickies Lined Coverall as it has a warm quilted lining, making it perfect for cold environments. It has a rugged construction and includes reinforced stress points and turn back cuffs, as well as a concealed heavyweight two way brass zip. It also has comfort features including an ‘action-back’ which allows for maximum body movement, and with two zipped chest pockets, back pockets, and side swing pockets it has enough storage for all your workday requirements.

Specialist coveralls can also provide protection against chemicals, for example people who work in laboratories, or with hazardous waste products.

The use of overalls in bright colours provides a safety aspect to this garment as well, so whatever the situation be it working in areas such as motorway/railway maintenance you can be seen so you would want to consider the Dickies Hi Vis Safety Coverall, which is available in a choice of colours. It is waterproof with stitched and tape sealed seams and also features zips to the outer leg seams which have a covering storm flap. The hood is zip off so can be stored when not required.
