About Jobman Workwear
// Since 1975 //
No Shrinkage | No Burst Seams
1. No Shrinkage
Guaranteed by Sanforisation®
Top quality fabric is used to make Jobman Workwear, giving less than 1% shrinkage, even when washed at 85°C – guaranteed! Combinations of fabric composition and a heat and pressure process of Sanforisation® are used to help achieve these enviable results. The hotter you wash the more dirt and grease you get out and the longer the garment will last.
2. No Burst Seams
Using 10KG Breaking strain threads
The strongest possible seams are used on the common stress areas of the outside leg and crutch seams. The ‘Fell seam’, commonly found in jeans, consists of four layers of material stitched together with robust double needle stitching and is incredibly stronger than the standard overlocked or even the folded overlocked seams found in most workwear. It’s guaranteed!
Bar Tacks – high frequency reinforcement
Reinforcing ‘bar tacks are used at all major stress points, such as the pockets and belt loops. All stitching is done with 10kg breaking strain ‘core-spun’ polyester threads – many times stronger than used in most workwear.
