Workwear is clothing worn for work, especially work that involves manual labour.[1] Often those employed within trade industries elect to be outfitted in workwear because it is built to provide durability and safety.

The workwear clothing industry is growing[2] and consumers have numerous retailers to choose from. Chains that have made a commitment to the $1 billion and rising workwear business report steady 6 percent to 8 percent annual gains in men's workwear.[3]

In the UK, if workwear is provided to an employee without a logo, it may be subject to income tax being levied on the employee for a "payment in kind." However if company clothing is provided with logos on then the employee may be entitled to a tax rebate to help pay for the up keep.[4]
