Feeling the styling on these:





Though not a huge fan of the weird vignette/faded photo style.



Loving Ms. B's look, John!

Norfolk (UK) based workwear company - which like the Japanese brand Sassafras takes inspiration from gardening:

And with Norfolk seemingly being the UK centre of all things womanly in workwear, this company offers made to order with a range of vintage inspired designs:

^ the great blue - in the pictures, most of the models seem to wear their jeans as drop crotch pants...
Not a flattering view in my books. Certainly not sexy and or flattering if that's the objective.


Posted By: hollows
Date Posted: 24 Aug 2015 at 3:11pm
Let's not base the value of the brand/items on level of sexiness, surely there are other criteria to consider in a garment.


Posted By: ThisSunday
Date Posted: 24 Aug 2015 at 3:59pm
Those pics look great but Foxy does have a point. The Dude Slim look really horrible in the fit pics. Not flattering at all. They're probably not going for sexiness though


Posted By: haler
Date Posted: 24 Aug 2015 at 4:23pm
Drop crotch looks weird on all genders, in my opinion.  

In regards to what Hollows was commenting on, a sexy or flattering look shouldn't be the only thing discussed.  What's the quality of construction, materials used, country of manufacture?  

Beyond that, you can get in to the whole discussion about why one wears clothes in the first place:  function, comfort, fashion, personal expression?  It's certainly not only about looking sexy.

The women do look preened and postured do we have any women in workwear doing manual work?
Shoeing a horse, felling a tree, digging potatoes and so on, or at least a un-manicured cuticle. Wink

Sorry proulxsie im probably a bit confused by it all, Im not saying the images don't look marvelous but does the clothing actually belong to these women? who actually put in the work to create the "wear" some of the images look like models who have been hired to wear "workwear" rather than women wearing their own, but i could be entirely wrong.

The only women i see in workwear are either factory workers who wear a leather apron or farm hands who wear dirty jeans and oversized knitwear, I could try and sneak a crafty photograph.

I like your thinking hollows, Double 0 queen of the desert... Good job ive bought some Veet.

I think my intention with this thread was to make a place to post womens inspiration since it's lacking across the board. "Women in workwear" is as a title is open to interpretation, including the clothing in here merely being inspired by workwear. While historical photos of real women workers in workwear are prevalent (and anyone should feel free to post em here!), modern workwear for women is not as prevalent as it is for men. Also, most of this thread is me posting my own inspiration, which clearly veers on the side of lookbook/editorial photography rather than historical images. Not to mention that for my own interests in getting dressed in the morning—I am not as into wearing a time-dated costume as much as wearing stuff that looks contemporary but borrowing elements or essence from the past.

. . . is the correct answer (IMHO).

Too much time wasted in trying to be authentic when what that actually means is not real but copied, plagiarised, imitated or interpreted to fit into a particular (current) lifestyle and/or culture - yet at the same time disparaging anything that seems more blatant in doing the same.

'Women in workwear' is all very contextual too. The work attire of a traffic warden is likely to be very different to that of an engineer or a burlesque artist,

Duke- ?? You would rather denim brands like Warehouse, FW, SC, ect spend less time trying to produce an authentic reproduction? I don't get it.

But please my point was not authenticity but... take a look at say this woman.


Is she^ a "woman in workwear" or is she a model who has been dressed by a stylist?.
Who actually put the wear into that type3 or those jeans? I don't think it was her.
That was my point and prolouxsie has kindly explained her reasons.

No sir, I hope those brands, and many others, continue and prosper.

I just hope there are more folks buying them but taking themselves less seriously (recalling that 'nothing but clothes' discussion).

We don't live in some other era despite how hard we cling to romantic aspirations - those selfsame aspirations that the aforementioned brands use to promote and hype (yet another old debate) their products to fit into that lifestyle we create to accommodate the marketing we claim to despise.

It's not genuine - it's a notion. But it's something we all choose - both knowingly and unwittingly by parts.

Even the clothes that you and I prefer were once fashion . . . and we're 'styled'.

There's a small square in Glasgow (Royal Exchange Square where it's traditional for the statue of the Duke of Wellington to wear a traffic cone on his head) that for a while was popular for dozens upon dozens of goths to hang out. My niece was one. She took a lot of time to put on make up and dress to be different - a very serious business. I couldn't spot her in the throng - everyone looked the same. And she was mightily pissed when I stupidly mentioned that . . .

Some classic shots taken from that Shorpy site.  The first one isn't necessarily workwear, maybe more adventure wear?  I'm curious what a 1920s woman would keep in that hip pocket on her skirt.

Nice photo's peeps.

Bear with me Duke, Im getting there... I think we just have a different perspective on fake vs reproduction i do appreciate the time taken creating a stitch perfect repro i wouldn't consider it wasted its the effort that separates such as the Sunset henley the Harris's yoinked out the ground and any other red henley off the high street. Once we start to consider the detailing a waste of time its one step closer to abercrombie & fitch.

Models be it men or women paraded in a fashion stylist interpretation of workwear just seems utterly fake to me (which it is) but i would agree the distinction between fashion and reproduction has become ever more blurred recently.

Pretty cool. If it were around knee length, I could convince my fiance to get one.

If they were shorter like the Flat Head's skirts are, I bet quite a lot of girls would be interested, but I doubt that's what Konaka-San cares about.
