Anyone else interested in a work clothes community?

Stuff like steel toe work boots, high quality work gloves, work pants, shirts and jackets. I'm not sure how low someone like carhartt would go but there has to be other good brands willing to work with massdrop.

Remember--the Devil wears Carharrt!
This'd be great, especially if we can get some wide workboots (I'm a Redwing fan), or some of the European style workwear (ie: Tranemo or similar).
A must
definitely
I literally just put up a post about workboots. I would love to get a good deal on them.
yes , i love my hellihanson outer wear and long sleeve winter under armour , in the cold parts of canada , snow fighter .
but i am interested in the light weight jackets, and also noise canceling ear bud/phones i can use for longest periods possible 12 hour use , for tunes as well as great communications with my customers while sitting in my skid steer loader . any thing that makes the day go by with out the head ache of over loud music and ear buzzing after i get home would be great and i believe one of the most fatiguing parts of the job .
also always on the look out for strobe lighting and led lighting stuff that i can make my job safer and pimp my heavy equipment . and even tires and tire chains .
i am also a avid mechanic and hobby welder , goes with the job i guess i like some products that also meet these demands as well , from tools to nuts and bolts ,or wenches . snap on /westward / grey. miller mig 252 / new holland skid steer ladders and attachments , i spend a lot of time in one and would love and spend a lot money keeping to tip top.
I would be all over this
sounds good
Count me in...
doubt it will ever happen. masssdrop's identity is niche and getting communities to commit to niche purchases at discount is the whole point - if you go mainstream there's going to be no motivation to offer anything to a massdrop deal.

That said, i'd love to see it. Knipex, Wiha, Wera, Stahlwille, Bahco, Gedore, Hazet, all them, plus some workwear stuff from the US that i don't recognise and isn't in fashion over here, but that i'd probably be tempted to try.

Hellyeah on the Knipex tools. Am a retired electrician that carried Knipex combopliers (linemans pliers) for 20+ years rather than Klein. Had all the capacities of the Kleins plus a few including lighter weight. They'd be a welcomed addition to Massdrop!
Work would be great. Tools and actual work outerwear, eg: not whatever the hell Patagonia was going for with their "work" line, is broad enough to get some traction.

I'm sure the likes of Redwing, MAC, Snap-on, Carhartt, et al. Would probably work something out with Massdrop.
For sure, with FR rated clothing and high end hand tools too! And everything else an electrician needs :D
yup
Heyt !
yes
Yup!
For sure. Maybe make it work clothes/ combat apparel for military guys (like me) since they overlap a lot.
I'd include "duty" articles, like hardshell and softshell jackets and pants that are rated at 20.000 mm water resistance or higher, gore-tex stuff preferably. Also tools... not just multi-tools. Like box-sets of high-quality tools for cars, computers, etc.
I agree with the broad "Work" category, if I could get some more pants from Duluth Trading without making my wallet cry it would be worth it.

Ya I'd love to get some duluth too but living in canada makes them a good bit pricy.
Lyase
Yes.
