Be Ready for Anything in Men's Workwear

Anyone who works on a construction site knows that your workwear is as important as your tools. It must be comfortable, hard-wearing, and practical, and in some cases it must also adhere to certain safety regulations. Whatever you need, whether it's a jacket, trousers, or a boiler suit, eBay has what you're looking for, and for very reasonable prices. 

What kinds of men's workwear are available?

Depending on the type of workwear you are looking for, you can choose from a huge variety of features. Most workwear is hard-wearing, as these types of clothes must stand up to much rougher treatment than everyday wear - just like you, your clothing has to be ready for whatever your day has in store. As well as being hard wearing, you may have other, more specific, requirements from your workwear. Here are a few features you might want to think about before you choose:  

  • Knee pads: These are important if you spend a lot of time kneeling at work.
  • Multiple pockets: These are essential if you need to carry lots of smaller tools on you.
  • High Visibility: This can be a legal requirement, for example if you work on railways.
  • Fleece lined: This will keep you warm in the winter and on cold mornings.
  • Waterproof: If you work in wet conditions, keeping dry and comfortable is very important.

What if you need PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment?

If you are using your men's workwear as PPE, it must be compliant with safety regulations and job-specific requirements. For example, if you are a welder you must wear flame resistant, long-sleeved clothing. Also, you need to make sure that there is nowhere for sparks or hot metal to collect, like open pockets or trouser cuffs. Check for a CE mark and other safety marks to make sure that it is up to scratch before you make a purchase. 

Is there workwear that looks good too?

Just because your workwear must be durable and practical, doesn't mean that it can't look great as well. Men's workwear comes in a huge range of styles and colours, so as long as you aren't restricted to high visibility clothing, you can also afford to choose something you like as well as something that is practical. With so much workwear available on eBay, you are bound to find something you will love to wear every day.
