Frequently Asked Questions
OUR TROUSERS & POCKETS
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT DEXTERS WORKWEAR, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
At Dexters, we take a different approach to workwear, compared to many other brands out there.
Our workwear can change and adapt with every different task or job you work on, and is designed to meet the needs of each specific trade. To do this, we’ve worked alongside installers and trade pros and created an innovative interchangeable pocket system that lets you swap out customised pockets full of the right tools for each individual job.
Your workwear is a part of your toolkit, and Dexters strives to achieve this with our adaptable workwear system. If you want to find out more about how our pocket system works, you can take a look at our “How it Works?” page.
HOW STRONG ARE THE CLIPS ON YOUR WORKWEAR POCKETS?
Very! Our workwear clips are military standard. They’re made to keep gear right where you want it even in the toughest of environments, so they’ll have no problem with the likes of your drill and hammer. They’ve also been tested by a bunch of trade pros, so you can be sure they’re up to the job.
WILL YOUR POCKETS WORK WITH ANY TROUSERS?
Our workwear pockets have been designed specifically alongside our trousers only, and can be easily clipped on to the specially designed loops on our trousers’ waist. This means you’ll need a pair of Dexters trousers to get the most out of our pockets (they won’t work with other trouser brands) - and we have many bundles available to make this easier for you so you can easily get the matching pockets for your trade.
WHAT’S THE QUALITY OF YOUR WORKWEAR TROUSERS LIKE?
Great! We’ve been designing workwear for over a decade, so we know how to make a sturdy, reliable trouser using the best materials out there. We also get our gear tested by all the trade pros so we know from their experience what works and what doesn’t, and we also hold focus groups from time to time where trade pros can come in and discuss their own workwear needs and how our gear can be improved.
Our workwear is only good to go on sale once the trade pros and installers we work with have tested it on site and are satisfied with it, so you can be sure it’s all of the highest quality.
From bar tacked stitching, to anti-wicking hems, our trousers will last, helping you to both work more efficiently and of course, make more money! You can find out more about the materials we use here.
I WANT TO MAKE SURE I PICK UP THE RIGHT SIZE, WHAT’S THE FIT OF YOUR TROUSERS LIKE?
We’ve kept our sizing guides simple, using our proven patterns for great, true to size fit. If you want to make sure you grab the right size, check out our sizing guide for more info and tips on measuring.
WHAT KNEEPADS WILL WORK WITH YOUR TROUSERS?
When it comes to kneepads, we know everyone has different preferences. We use a bottom loading kneepad pocket that will keep almost any pad firmly in place, so you can use your favourite kneepads with our trousers, no sweat.
