Workwear


Workwear - from overalls to high-tech


Practical, functional and comfortable? Yes! Dreary and replaceable? No!!! The job-outfit should be fashionable and cool, too – and preferably individual. Gone are the days when work clothes were just used for protection against dirt or to store tools. Job fashion has become an emotional topic and we have made a decisive contribution with our collections.

engelbert strauss produces clothing for the most diverse applications and requirements on the job. Collections made from high-quality materials and features. From extra flexible made from a full-stretch fabric, to extremely hear-wearing made from a canvas material. With a focus on sophisticated pocket features or a deliberately reduced look: The right workwear, protective clothing and PPE (personal protective equipment) for trade and industry can be found here. And classic bib and braces cannot be missing from the range either...

Workwear as varied as the world of work

Every job is different – and almost every occupation has its very own uniform. Pinafores, aprons and chef's jackets are standard in gastronomy. Tunics and all kinds of white workwear dominate in the care sector. And what about trade and industry? Almost every trade has its own special identification.

Tradesmen expect a lot from their work clothes. They must withstand the hardest stresses and strains. The shape and size must fit well to ensure high wear comfort. High-quality workwear must also score points with functional features – especially the pockets. The time of year, and the weather in general, also play a major role. All of this is topped off by the fashion aspect. Clothing for tradesmen must therefore have a lot to offer.

How do I find the right workwear?


Shape and size


Professional workwear has to be one thing above all: A perfect fit! The design and size are crucial in guaranteeing a comfortable fit. Our huge selection of sizes should offer everyone in the team the right fit - and provide perfect support at work every day!

T-shirts from 2 XS to 7XL, up to 60 trouser sizes, including short, long and stocky trousers fits create the basis for the perfect team outfit.

We also accommodate the different types of wearer with various shapes of T-shirts and polo shirts. After all, something that suits a colleague might not suit someone else. The shape of the shirt is decisive. The different engelbert strauss shirt fittings of regular, long, slim and plus fit extend the possible combinations for an individual style.

The right size in a flash

Our size table shows quickly and clearly which size you need for engelbert strauss work trousers and outerwear. Depending on the individual body measurements, the table shows the right garment size with the respective conversion into international and inch sizes. The size table is assigned online to each individual product.

Features for professional use


Choosing the right workwear for the respective use is essential!

Professional working clothes must be planned down to the finest detail. A functional pocket design is important for work clothes worn by tradesmen. Each trade has its own demands – and special applications require special features. Hammer loops, ruler pockets, mobile phone pockets, keep-safe pockets with zip, kneepad pockets: All of the features must be cleverly arranged and planned. Wood chips need to be stopped from getting into the pockets of carpenters, whilst in the assembly and automobile industries it's important to protect parts against scratches caused by exposed fasteners. Our collection e.s.motion pays special attention to the pocket features. The position, size, features and arrangement of pockets have been defined in collaboration with various trade customers.

Targeted filtering

These specific demands can be defined in advance using the garment filters. A sophisticated filter system works as an interactive advisor in the engelbert strauss online shop. Characteristics such as the garment size, material, protective properties, features and lots more besides can be selected in advance. The garment filter then optimises the product selection to achieve a needs-based result.

Various materials - various properties


Raw materials in premium quality

Workwear has to be able to do more than normal clothing as it is often put through its paces for up to 10 hours a day. This requires high-quality materials, which are durable yet comfortable. You can find protective clothing made from various textile mixes in our online shop. Extremely tear-resistant, highly resistant to wear or ultimate flexibility: The engelbert strauss collections are ready to meet a range of different needs.

The choice of raw material is a decisive factor in our designs. A high cotton proportion such as in our e.s.roughtough collection provides for a comfortable, natural wear sensation. Workwear with part elastane, such as the e.s.dynashield line is particularly flexible. Polyester mixes achieve high performance rates in terms of wear and tear-resistance. We develop practice-orientated models for various industries and activities. We offer work trousers and work jackets, but also basics such as T-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, long sleeve shirts & others in various fabric mixes, and attach huge value to the quality of raw materials.

Workwear for all weather conditions

Workwear must be flexible and adjust to changing weather conditions. Depending on the collection, we offer light and practical waistband jackets, comfortable softshells, weather-proof rain jackets, waterproof dungarees and functional winter jackets. As part of your personal protection equipment, workwear must often be combined with protective clothing in hi vis colours for special applications. Here we also offer the corresponding models to suit the available collections. See the advantages of the various jacket models here >>

Which collection is the right one?


The engelbert strauss collections differ in weight, shape, fabric and features. Two questions need to be clarified from the start when choosing the right outfit for the entire team: Is the collection available for men AND women? Does the range include corresponding weather/winter models?

Work protection - safety first!


Above all, the wearer should feel good in the right workwear - and safe! Special protective measures are required depending on the work involved. Safety clothing that protects against heat and flames or against the danger of an electric arc, for example. An appropriate safety shoe to suit the place of work is extremely important to protect the foot against mechanical influences. Of course, safety helmets, work gloves, respirator masks, head protection, ear protection and eye protection are also part of your personal protection equipment. The aim is to effectively protect employees against dangers and damages to health. The central pillar of functioning work protection is the employer's risk assessment so that the necessary protection measures and therefore the right PPE can be selected.

Certified safety workwear

Safety clothing is understood as clothing that protects the wearer against dangers or risks in various situations (source: German statutory accident insurance). Certified safety clothing is subject to various standards depending on the application. The standard EN 381-5 applies to cut protection clothing, and standard DIN EN ISO 20471 for high-visibility clothing. DIN EN 343 indicates safety workwear with a weather protection function.Testing by a testing laboratory is required for this type of safety workwear. The protective clothing is certified by an approved body after successful testing.

Tips on workwear care


Work clothing needs different care to clothes used in gastronomy or the care sector. The type of care clothing needs therefore primarily depends on the job, the special application and the chosen type of clothing. We have a number of different models in the range for various sectors.

The care instructions are different depending on the product, so we recommend that you always check the label before washing! Very detailed washing, drying and care instructions are sewn into engelbert strauss clothing. These help you to care for the clothes properly.

Washing detergent for coloured textiles

Multi-coloured workwear or clothing with contrasting trims, prints, and embroidered or printed logos require special care. Here we recommended our e.s. Washing powder colour plus. The high-performance washing detergent is even suitable for cleaning membrane textiles and effectively combating dirt whilst protecting colours and fibres.

For white textiles, we also offer the e.s. Washing powder hygienic fresh, which is a special washing detergent with a disinfectant effect - especially interesting for sweatshirts, trousers or tunics in care professions or for work clothes used in gastronomy.

Important advice on caring for functional clothing and PPE, such as safety clothing like hi vis or cut protection clothing, as well as tips on caring for safety footwear properly can be found in our FAQs.
