Workwear is clothing worn for work, especially work that involves manual labor. Often those employed within various trade industries elect to be outfitted in various forms of workwear because it is built to provide greater durability and safety.
The workwear clothing industry is growing and consumers have numerous retailers to choose from. Buyers see workwear as the workhorse of the men's apparel business, one currently registering better increases than apparel overall. 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.
Mass market retailers are wringing incremental sales out of workwear, making their stores destination outlets for the category.
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.
