When it comes to work clothes for an auto repair shop, construction site, or any other solid blue collar trade, you might think coats or jeans are the norm, but more and more men are discovering an alternative to the traditional standard work uniform – the kilt! There are a number of benefits to wearing a kilt while at work that may surprise you. Here are some of them:
- Skirts are cooler than pants.
While we think shirts are cool in terms of style, we actually mean temperature when we say that wearing one is cooler than wearing pants. If you work outside or in a hot and stuffy environment, a kilt will help you feel more comfortable during the day. Drips allow your legs to feel the breeze and allow air to circulate underneath. You’ll find that you sweat less and simply feel better at work in a kilt, which can boost your productivity pants with knee pads.
- Tanks provide plenty of storage.
If you need a lot of equipment and tools at work, then a working kilt is perfect for you. The specially designed drip is filled with pockets to hold small items and loops for tools such as hammers and screwdrivers. You’ll have everything you need to complete tasks at your fingertips, which means less curvature to reach your toolbox and fewer trips back and forth to the work truck or work bench.
- Tanks are durable.
Workwear blocks are made of heavy-duty fabrics that resist rips and rips. They can be just as durable, if not more durable, than high-quality work pants and trousers. Work shirts are handcrafted, so they offer a level of quality that you can’t get from store-bought work pants.
- Downloading can differentiate your brand.
If you are self-employed or own your own business, wearing a kilt while working or having your entire team wear it can be a branding opportunity. You can be absolutely sure that everyone will remember the mechanic in the kilt or the plumber in the skirt!
For all its advantages, wearing a kilt to work has one drawback that you need to consider before deciding to wear one to work – it leaves your legs exposed. On many job sites, this is not a concern, but if you have to wear special protective leg clothing, you may not be able to safely wear a kilt while on the job. Men who have to get on their knees frequently during the day may want to buy a pair of knee pads to wear with skirts as well.
