Behind Branded, Good Value and Cheap Workwear

We all wear clothes at home and at work, well hopefully most of the time we do! Whilst we are not all experts in industrial workwear and personal protective equipment (PPE), we do all have a fair idea of what looks good on us and what feels comfortable for us to wear.

Balancing these factors is a careful consideration to make, so how do you know what you are getting for your money when purchasing workwear? You get what you pay for in most instances and if you buy from a reputable workwear manufacturer, such as Beeswift for safety footwear, Portwest for outdoor workwear and Premier for hospitality uniforms, you can be assured that you are buying quality, robust fabrics that offer real value-for-money.

We have noticed customers move from purchasing the cheapest workwear items to look for product quality and something that will last them longer

Sometimes it isn’t that simple however. There are different price points within a work clothing range and the scope of pricing might not be that easy to deduce whether the product itself uses raw materials which are ‘good, better and best’. The prices might instead reflect the different features for each product within the range, so for instance some work trousers may include zipped side pockets or pockets in the kneepads, whilst others do not.

So how should you choose your workwear?

You do get what you pay for in the end – and if it fits your specific requirements and lasts, the job is done.

Wray Bros provides a wide range of safety workwear for your requirements as an individual or an organisation. Our team understands that what you wear must meet specific safety requirements for your specific tasks at hand. We also appreciate that you must also be comfortable to be able to perform your duties correctly, and with a smile on your face.

For more information on how to find value in your staff uniforms and work clothes please feel free to contact our customer service team who will be more than happy to offer advice and guidance, either over the phone or face-to-face at our workwear trade counter in Liverpool.
