Do all tradies need to invest in workwear?
We often get asked do tradies need to invest in workwear? When you’re working as a tradie, health & safety requirements often play a big role in what you’re allowed to wear on the job. Whether it’s hi-vis, steel capped boots, hard hats or safety goggles, it makes sense to wear the clothing that’s recommended to keep you safe.
But what if you’re a tradie that has none (or few) of these requirements? Does that mean you can wear whatever you want to work? Probably not.
Here are just a few of the reasons basic workwear is essential for all tradies...
It’ll last longer
Workwear goes through a lot - from moving around with you all day, to rubbing against rough surfaces, to being exposed to harsh chemicals in frequent washing, but unlike your everyday clothes, workwear is made to last.
Most modern workwear is made with strong & durable fabrics that have been created specifically to combat the wear & tear of a tradies daily life.
Reduces risk of injury
Traditional safety equipment is not the only gear that will help you avoid injury. If you work outside, for example, you have a high risk of sunburn & heatstroke, therefore you may want to consider workwear that includes SPF protection & a hat as part of your outfit.
Wearing clothes made of stronger fabric also reduces the risk of clothes tearing or wearing out & therefore provides extra protection for the skin.
It’s made for the job
Workwear is made to handle the everyday jobs that tradies take on. This includes features such as 4-way-stretch to allow a large range of movement, breathable fabrics & ventilation to keep you cool while you’re working hard. Some designs also include antimicrobial (bacteria resistant) & stain repellent finishes to make caring for your clothes much easier.
Helps you look presentable
Wearing clothes made specifically for the job means they have a lower chance of getting damaged & looking scruffy.
While the people who hire you are probably more interested in the quality of your work than what you look like, having clothing that looks professional & presentable will create a positive lasting impression that may help you secure repeat business.
Saves the rest of your wardrobe
If you have a specific set of work clothes you won’t need to wear your everyday clothes on the job and therefore won’t damage/dirty all of your clothing.

Create Uniforms & Merchandise that attracts
...in 3 simple steps.
Let's be clear, what you want is to attract customers/clients/members/etc. What you don't want is to attract irrelevant people (who will waste your time & resources).
Remember, just as you are always looking for your ideal customer/client/member/etc, they are also looking for their ideal brand.
This is why it's important to refine your visual look (uniforms & merchandise). You want to let people know what sort of brand you are at a glance - attention is fleeting.
To do this well, you need to know what your brand is all about & the type of customer you want to attract…
