I wear bibs all the time but with the straps tied around the waist (I'm odd like that).
I did buy some Dickies but they were really uncomfortable - although I do believe that was down to me buying 2 sizes too small (womens logic ) ) and I got them when I was in a store out of town so can't be bothered to take them back.
So seriously if anyone wants some free, unworn, whites 28 waist 32 leg just pay the postage and you can have them, they're still in the bag!
Great post. We talk about not skimping on work shoes/boots, but yeah; if the pants are a PITA that makes the work day worse than it should be too.:thumbsup:Work clothes need to fit and work for you. If not it is the same as using any other tool that ends up costing you because it is not working right or irritating you and affecting your production.
Look at how much time we spend in work clothes and the fact once we are at work there is no changing into anything else.
My suggestion to the remedy to this problem is easy for me for I have a readily available resource but even it I didn't I would find it in my best interest to seek out someone to do the same thing. I have a sister that is into sewing and has all the necessary machines to do any and all alterations to clothes. So heres my suggestion. Find and pay a seamstress to alter as needed clothes for work purposes. Cost is always an issue but you need to weigh it against the plain irritation and lost productivity.
As business owners look at what we pay for equipment and why we choose the higher cost item over the cheaper one.
I'll have to check out the Carhart T-shirts. Been buying Dickies brand for years now, but the quality is slipping.And it doesn't just end with work clothing and boots. Socks and undergarments are just as important IMO. I just recently paid a premium price for five
Carhart T-shirts, with a pocket, for use under my uniform. I now need to pay a premium for some good quality boxer briefs. The Carhart socks are working pretty good also.
I think the design model is 100410412. I got the black, which holds its color much better then the blue. I paid about $24.00 per shirt. They really don't wick as much as I thought, but they're pretty comfortable.I'll have to check out the Carhart T-shirts. Been buying Dickies brand for years now, but the quality is slipping.
