What does it cost to kit yourself out in mens workwear today?

Mens workwear comes in a variety of styles and designs and earlier in the year we gave you a list to show what we could offer here at Brookes. The list was for the more traditional look of someone who worked in a factory or construction type. That list is repeated here and surprise we have kept all the prices exactly the same, so you can still save money. In addition we have provided a list for a proposed outfit for the more office based worker. We all have to clever with our money today and we are doing our bit to pass on discounts on quality garments

Traditionally, workwear has meant more physical factory or building type jobs, but today has expanded its remit to cover lots of office and service industries as well. Let’s take a more traditional example first; to fully kit out a new starter on a typical construction site. First of they will need a good pair of safety boots, that will last and meet the latest safety requirements. At just £13.24 the Black D Ring Chukka Boot is a great introduction level boot, with a leather upper, padded collar and steel midsole. The dual density anti-static sole is second to none.

Next a pair of Dickies Mens Industry 260 Trousers, ideal for the any construction situation, hardwearing, durable and enough pockets to satisfy any situation, and from £17.58, perfect for anyone’s pocket.

Making a little assumption that we would get a good summer that a t-shirt or polo is a good option, and you wouldn’t go wrong with the Gildan heavyweight Ultra Polo Shirt, made from 100% pre shrunk cotton, from £4.19.

If the weather isn’t so good, like a normal British summer, then a sweatshirt might be a better option, such as the RTY Workwear Sweat at £17.13. This cotton and polyester sweatshirt has a reinforced taped neck, shoulder seams with twin needle stitching for added durability and padded elbow protection.

Now in winter when the weather takes a turn for the worst, but the job still has to be done then a set of Dickies Vermont Waterproofs (Jacket and Overtrousers) may be the answer and give the wearer enough protection against the elements and at £18.30 a set won’t break the bank either.

Last, but definitely not least, is a safety helmet and the JSP Mark II helmet, conforming to BS EN397, at just £5.52 is ideal being manufactured from UV stabilised high density polyethylene.

So, boots, trousers, polo shirt, sweatshirt, waterproofs and helmet and all for less than £80.00.

For the office we can supply a range of corporate trousers suitable for both men and women, as well as a great choice of shirts and blouses. Here we are looking at something for the men so why not start with a pair of Henbury’s Teflon coated flat front Chino Trousers which won’t burn a hole in the pocket of your finances, available from just £24.30 a pair. These are manufactured from 100% Cotton Twill in a relaxed fit so you stay comfortable all day.

The Russell Collection provides a quality collection of shirts that will look the part in any office environment and from this the Short Sleeve Oxford Shirt. Available in both tailored and classic fit options and manufactured from a high quality Oxford fabric and priced from just £12.86 it won’t break the bank. You can even afford to invest in the Premier range of ties, available in a great choice of styles and colours, prices starting at just £8.34.

So shirt, trousers and tie for a grand total of £45.50 and remember that there are further discounts available for buying in bulk.

So whatever your requirements for mens workwear, here at Brookes, the home of workwear we have something to suit that won’t break the budget, even at Christmas, and don’t forget we also offer our in-house embroidery and printing service.
