Snickers are good Keck's for the knees pads bit they poorly made.

Working in our gang all our lads snickers rip open after about 10 month. Tripple stitch my ar5e.

Moved onto other knee pad trabs now. Blaklader are better than snicker all day long but harder to come by.

T shirts all the way bag a load of cheaps from asda 3 quid a pop. That's all you need to be fair innit doin this job.

Stay cool

puma sweat pants & no kegs = no betty swollocks , 12 hole boots for nasty jobs and last birthdays trainers for casual domestic jobs and dr martins for special customers.

Them snickers always tear in the sack region for me, prefer the scruffs ones now, seem a lot harder wearing I find & no sack tearages. Although it used to be nice having air conditioning to the sweaty sack area :RpS_biggrin:

I do same with my current scruffs.
Don't bother looking after em. I pay the money cos they save my knees have great pockets for scissors, blades and roll of tape.

They covered in crap mine from day 1 but they last me 2-3 years

I have Blaklader trousers but only wear them in winter. They only cost me £28 too as the merchants were selling them off because nobody bought them at £60. In shorts from March to November

Englebert strauss for me. Had some blacklader and Fristads but as said can be harder to find. Carhartt are a good solid make too.

When not wearing my sponge bob onsie I wear anything scruffy for skimming as long as it's loose. For venetian I wear nice black work pants and shies and embroidered polo shirt with company details. And always look clean and smart ish when pricing any work
