    Random question: If a work wear brand goes too “glam” or starts adding items to their line that is outside of what a construction pro would wear, is that a put off to professionals?

    As long as the “core” professional line is supported and identified, I wouldn’t be put off. A company has to make a buck and enlarging the product line is one way to do that. It’s a fine line, I know, and offending the loyal customer base is not good business. Just my .02

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    Duluth and Carhartt are 2 companies that make clothing for the jobsite and also have outdoor leisure apparel that may not fit the jobsite. They don’t stray from either type of clothing. That just comes with their overall clothing line. You like the work wear, why not some leisure wear. That does not put me off at all. Now if they were making Tuxedo’s, I would probably start questioning things as being competent in the clothing for work area. Regardless, no “Glam” for my clothing! I leave that to the wife’s. 🙂

    Are they available in Canada? Who sells them?

    Best work pants I ever had were Tough Duck. I loved those pants, tough and comfortable with cargo pockets, but man, what a price! I got mine on sale naturally. Got a couple of pairs of Dickies jeans, not that impressed.

    Doesn’t Duluth have the firehose pants? Made of the same material found on the outside of firehoses.

    Yes, I am starting to not get the 3/4 pants any more because of the 2 color used in them. It looks very euro.

    Not totally. But they need to keep the workwear as workwear. I don’t care about how cool or fashionable a piece of work clothing is. It needs to be functional.

    I think it does. You don’t want to look like a walking neon sign out there. I’m all for Hi Viz but there is a way to do it without making you look like a clown. In the US guys want functionality and long wearing over glam.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen euro used that way before – an insult I assume? I don’t like the two colour either. Ugly.

    As long as the work gear line and quality is maintained – I see no reason for a company to limit innovation and an expanded product line.

    If it helps a quality workwear company stay competitive; I’m all for it. I don’t really care how ugly they make stuff; I still have the choice of what I buy and wear.

    My favorite Duluth product is their “bare naked” line of underwear. I used to have trouble every now and then with jock itch, since switching to these a year or two ago I’ve not had it again.
    Very durable, too, haven’t wore out a pair yet.
    Right now they’ve got a pretty good sale going on,I always try to buy Duluth stuff when its on sale as it is a bit pricey

    Check out the reviews. And yes they are pricey,it’s a little like Darn Tough socks. But, for me, it’s well worth it. I just ordered a couple more pair, so hopefully never have to wear anything else!

    no more than a meal at a decent restaurant, and the ones I have are well over a year old and so zero signs of wear.
