... to be Seen In this Winter, from Dickies Workwear
Global workwear brand Dickies has launched the Wakefield – an innovative new jacket that transforms in appearance in low light conditions.
Offering tradesmen the high visibility they often rely on in winter months while maintaining a stylish look, the Wakefield appears just like a typical soft shell jacket, but becomes reflective in poor lighting conditions. Grey in colour with black detailing, the jacket is easy to coordinate with other items in Dickies’ range, helping to create a modern, professional finish.
“We know from our own market research that tradesmen are taking more pride in their appearance, so we’re increasingly looking for workwear solutions that offer a smart, contemporary look, without compromising on practicality and, importantly, safety,” said James Whitaker, Marketing Director.
“During the darker days of winter, high-visibility clothing becomes an especially vital element of a tradesman’s wardrobe. The Wakefield is a stylish outerwear option that offers a fresh alternative to traditional reflective clothing.”
Breathable, with waterproof fabric and an adjustable hood, the jacket is ideal for outdoor work throughout the year. Further practical benefits include an inside pocket, adjustable cuffs and internal hem adjusters.
Dickies Workwear’s full selection of PPE products includes reflective options available in multiple styles and fabrics to tackle all tasks and conditions, designed to maximise the visibility of the wearer. All high-vis clothing items are designed in line with health and safety requirements laid down by the EU Parliament.
