Work trousers: guide and offers 2020
Usually, a standard working day covers 8 hours of our day: they are not few, and that's why it is essential to go to work with the right clothes and about this...
Did you know that wearing tight and poorly finished clothes can negatively affect our yield by at least 70%?
The work trousers have a meticulous design behind them because the legs are the pivot that holds us up. It is thanks to them that we work in the most diverse and practical fields of different industries. For this very reason, work trousers must not only provide protection from external agents such as sparks or flames but must also avoid the risk of fractures and be fitted with joint protection. That's why it is essential to choose comfortable, well-fitted work trousers that relieve us from the weight of a heavy day. It is also important to remember that we are talking about an essential piece of clothing. Today customers, not only demand a safe, comfortable and suitable work trouser for the type of work done but also it needs to be fashionable and with a modern/young design because as Italians the aesthetic aspect is a fundamental aspect of our lives.
For this reason, the accident prevention clothing industry has decided to use all its strength in designing specific work trousers:

Work trousers for Men
By now, we should understand that not only do women want to look good ... Yes, men also look at the aesthetic side of work trousers and worry about how comfortable they are and at the same time how pleasing they are to the eye. If you're undecided about what kind of trousers to buy or want to find out what's new, this section usually includes the most modern clothing lines, where safety and elegance are the same things: a simple accident prevention trouser even looks like a classic work trouser... If you don't believe it, see for yourself!
Types according to seasons
We have previously addressed the issue of differentiation of trousers according to biological gender, and here, for a more orderly matter, we thought to distinguish them further according to the time of year and specifically in trousers:
Winter work trousers
Working in cold environments can lower the level of your performance because when we're cold, we don't want to do anything or worse, we can't be productive. Too bad if you work all year round... but don't worry, because a quality fabric will protect you even from low temperatures. Browsing our online catalogue, you will find: Waterproof winter work trousers and also the different variant: those in flame retardant fabric. And if you work in contact with chemicals, you can choose disposable clothing, so your skin won't run any risk, and you won't drag harmful substances all the way home.
Summer work trousers
Summer is heavy for everyone, and the opposite of heavy is light... I bet this word is already cheering you up if you think about the hot and humid months and we understand you perfectly but watch the choice you make! You need to evaluate the conditions in which you work and be able to choose the right summer work trousers for you! Maybe you think that work shorts could be the most obvious choice for hot temperatures. But although comfortable and equipped with pockets, they do not protect against the risk of entanglement or aggression by chemical agents (acids or solvents) or mechanical (cutting and puncture). However, this does not mean that you will have to work trapped in heavy fabrics: you can opt for long trousers but in 100% cotton. Cotton is renowned for being a super fresh fabric, and so you will have found the right compromise between "coverage" and freshness. If, on the other hand, you work in a quiet environment where you are not exposed to the risk factors listed above and want to wear a comfortable and fresh garment, shorts are ideal!
All-season work pants
The all-season work pant is ideal for those who work in constant motion and do not have a fixed position. They represent the easiest solution to avoid changes in the seal and why not... Also to prevent the dreaded season changes in your wardrobe. Customers who are hesitant to buy, because of the weight of the trousers can opt for this type, which has a strong point of being a half-size in all its components. This aspect of the trousers, especially online, may seem to be an obstacle in the choice, especially for the less experienced, but with our help you will get a garment suitable for all seasons, as you are on the safe side!
Types according to functions
At this point, we certainly could not miss the various differentiations based on the characteristics of the work trousers, and we also decided to give you an idea of which trousers are suitable for a particular job. Specifically, in the list you will find all the useful information and curiosities about:
- multi-pocket work trousers
- high visibility work trousers
Multi-pocket work trousers
If you're a mechanic or a, do everything, how many times working you have forgotten some tools and thought "how much I wish someone could bring it to me now that I need it?". It's a pity that we don't always work in groups, or rather, not always who is with us is at our disposal, so the only thing left to do is to interrupt our work and get the tools we didn't have at hand ... The multi-pocket work pants are to avoid these inconveniences! Every product you'll find on our website is of high quality, and the work trousers you choose will have super strong pockets big enough to store the tools you need safely.
High visibility work trousers
High visibility work trousers are indispensable for those who work in dark, fog, snow or other conditions that put a strain on a clear view of their surroundings. Work trousers in this category are therefore equipped with reflective bands and according to EN 471 EN 340, must guarantee a high level of fluorescence for at least 50 washes. Moreover, this type of trousers is particularly suitable for those who work in the presence of moving vehicles such as ambulance rescuers, road construction and maintenance workers, as well as airport staff.
Cut-resistant work trousers
Cut-resistant work trousers are a real lifesaver for those who use machines and tools equipped with blades such as loggers, woodcutters, etc. ... Being equipped with reinforcements and several layers subjected to strict tests, these will allow you to work in total serenity, preventing accidents related to cutting. The areas most exposed to the most abrasive impact are also further reinforced because this is what the best accident prevention brands do: they worry about even the most remote accidents and...they prevent! Our strong point is our foresight, and that's why choosing one of our anti-cutting garments will only add points to your safety!
Decisive factors in the choice of work trousers
Choosing the right work trousers to suit your needs is not always easy. As you will have seen, different types are depending on the functions and particularities, and with such a variety of items, often the final choice can be a mirage. However, it is the details that make a difference, and if you still have doubts about your purchase, the decisive factors to consider to simplify the situation are the following:
The use of appropriate materials is one of the primary aspects when it comes to work clothes. Each fabric has a different impact on the comfort of the trousers. 100% cotton is perfect in hot or mild weather, given the feeling of freshness that remains on the skin and is ideal for those who are looking for the least invasive fabric possible, but also for those who tend to have allergic reactions with heavier fabrics.
However, even in the world of accident prevention, the trend of mixed fabrics (e.g. cotton-polyester) is becoming more and more popular. These fabrics are a good compromise between resistance to frequent washing and a comfortable feel, which is why they satisfy a much wider range of consumers looking for durable work clothes with an affordable price.
A common question when buying work trousers is: how long will they last before they wear out? All the answers are somehow related to the choice of materials and manufacturing; polyester, for example, being a fabric with excellent resistance to acid and light, is particularly non-deformable compared to other synthetic fibres. However, as we have seen in the previous paragraphs, even for reasons of allergies, it is not always possible to choose super-resistant fabrics. For example, cotton, although one of the best fabrics to the touch, is not able to withstand continuous washing cycles at high temperatures. Therefore if you do not want to give up its valuable properties, it is essential, especially in multi-pocket models, to pay attention to the presence of reinforcements, especially at the seams. Ultimately, with a minimum of caution, even the most delicate fabric can last for a long time!
A fundamental criterion to which, by law, all work clothes must comply is European regulations. Although it seems trivial, we would, therefore, like to remind you not to compromise on this aspect by purchasing work trousers, only and exclusively if they comply with current regulations. This aspect is valid for all the categories of workers working in companies that have established obligations and measures regarding safety. The most illustrative standard in this regard is UNI EN 340 "Protective clothing - General requirements", which outlines the generic characteristics of each category of an individual protection product.
One element not to be overlooked during the purchase phase is the style. It may seem irrelevant, but in reality, it's one of the first elements that catch our attention. If we don't feel comfortable in a garment, even working can become complicated. Fortunately, today, there are endless models full of details, and that's why even when it comes to workwear, you can satisfy everyone's taste. In particular, in the last few years, the boom of tight-fitting trousers has broken out, and in the same way, now there are many slim fit work trousers, which perfectly outline the silhouette. However, you can also opt for wider and more comfortable work trousers to feel just as comfortable as when you're at home in your free time. With only one example, you can already see how two variations of the same garment can make a difference!
The best brands of work trousers
Each brand has its own strong points, but some manufacturers have created a name so much that they have become giants. All our brands are good, but based on a careful analysis focused on sales, the best brands of work trousers both in terms of popularity and user satisfaction are:

Cofra work trousers
The first thing you would think looking at this section with an outside eye is: are they work pants? Cofra Drill spring/summer pants even look like classic pants! Usually, you would expect work trousers to be black or neutral, and this is not entirely false. Cofra work trousers, however, have an extra edge: they offer a variety of colours that immediately catches your eye and what will surely impress you is that many of them are jeans! But that's not all... some of them are even slim fit.
And if you're afraid that the 100% cotton fabric will wear out sooner with continuous washing, you can play it safe and choose those made with mixed fabrics, which maintain the brightness of the colour even if washed at a temperature of 40 degrees. Not bad, right?

But with U Power the choice is not so difficult, because it always pays the utmost attention to detail and has even thought of making scratch-resistant buttons! The success and innovation of this brand can also be seen by the small things, which in most cases make the difference because they help to facilitate the choice for customers, who find themselves dealing with different items all of the same quality!
