All seams are stitched using core-spun polyester, high breaking strain thread for greater strength. Fell seams are used on the common stress areas of the outside leg seam and crutch seams.


The fell seam is commonly used in jeans construction, and consists of four layers of material with robust double or even triple stitching and is far stronger than conventional overlocked seams.


Other areas of attention to detail include...



Fasteners – only the best are good enough

Metal jeans buttons are used giving superior durability and comfort than the standard hook and clasp found in most workwear. The button turns on its axle preventing stress fractures and broken buttons.


Zips – YKK every time

YKK are renowned for producing the best zips available and so consequently, there is only one choice for Jobman garments - only the best is good enough. [click here] to find out more.


Colourfast – to maximise consistent image

The fabrics we use offer superb colour-fastness. Many Jobman Workwear fabrics are twice dyed; first we use a wet dying process and then a second, reactive dye is used to ensure unsurpassed colourfastness.


Abrasion resistance – to exceed expectation

Martindale tests are conducted on all fabrics used to provide abrasion resistance. This test consists of a constant load (12kPa) being exerted in a random orbit on to the test fabric until two threads break. We use this test to prove that the super-abrasion-resistant fabrics we use to reinforce areas of our garments are as good as they can possibly be.


Kneepad pockets  designed to last

Jobman kneepad pockets last and last. Many of Jobman Workwear trades trousers feature not only super-abrasion resistant fabrics but also our special, friction-reducing, dual-layer technology which significantly increases the life of our trousers, even in the toughest environments.
