Types of Work Shirts

Work shirts are heavy-duty shirts typically worn for physical or industrial work environments. Individuals employed within trade industries usually choose workwear because it provides durability and can often include safety features such as flame-resistant material.

Some of the industries that utilize work shirts include manufacturing, construction, maritime, logging, railroad, mechanical, landscaping, HVAC and trucking. Work shirts, or industrial work shirts, are often used as a uniform dress for business and helps customers to easily identify employees and staff. Motorsport work shirts are great for the track, garage or shop environments.

Work shirts come in a variety of styles, colors, and fabrics and usually include various cottons or a cotton polyester blend. Any cotton material with a high thread counts of 160 to 220 is good for durability. A shirt with a 65% polyester / 35% cotton blend can help you stay cool. A comfortable fit is very important, so it is usually best to order a work shirt a little larger than a regular dress shirt. Work shirts come in short or long sleeve. The best materials for hot weather will be those that are lightweight and breathable. Some outdoor workers like to wear light weight, long sleeve shirts during the summer to protect against the sun’s damaging UV rays.
