"Best Buy" Work Clothes
“For years I had kept hearing about a company called Duluth Trading and the high quality work clothes they produce. Being a skeptical guy, I bought a pair of pants, a couple of T-shirts, a flannel shirt, and a vest and jacket to test them out. I only have one word to describe all the garments: Fantastic! The pants are called Flex Fire Hose Work Pants, and they have several features that make them super durable and comfortable.
“First, 3 percent Spandex provides incredible flex as you work. The pants come pre-washed and have that broken-in feel right out of the box. The fabric treatment repels water and stains so well that I was able to wipe a grease stain right off with no spot left behind. The Hidden Crouch GussetTM means no binding and provides extra comfort. Mid-leg utility pockets and back pockets with tuckable pocket flaps provide plenty of room to carry stuff.
“The construction of these pants is top notch, with all seams being triple-stitched. The T-shirts are soft, durable, and wick sweat away, and have a longer tail so when you bend over the shirt won’t come untucked from your pants.
“The flannel shirt is made of medium weight, soft, durable material with big buttons. Underarm gussets allow you to raise your arms overhead without the shirt coming untucked.
“My favorite item is the lightweight work vest. I wear it nearly every day except Sunday. If it would fit under my suit, I’d wear it to church, too! The vest comes with numerous pockets both inside and out and has mesh side panels for ventilation. It’s made from 70 percent cotton/30 percent nylon fabric that’s light and durable. The fit is easy moving, and the pockets are designed so stuff won’t spill out when you bend over.
“Even my wife, who is very picky about her clothes, loves the flannel shirt, jacket and purse that she bought.
“You can call for a free catalog (men’s or women’s) or order online.”
