    Hello all:

    I am changing up careers so I have to purchase new clothing. As much as I want to wear a suit and wingtips to a construction site, it just seems impractical to do so. I am looking for the trifecta here: stylish, functional, and durable. Here's what I have so far as work wear goes:

    Carhartt jacket: multiple interior and exterior pockets, removable hood, quilted lining, and its got these fancy cuffs which keep the cold out.

    Red Wing Work Shoes 4435: steel toe, metatarsal guard, welted sole, electrically insulating

    The important things I'm looking for: a bag, two pairs of work pants. Bonus items: gloves. As of now, I'm eying a Filson Field Bag. I'm not sure if will accommodate a laptop so I am hoping someone may be able to confirm. I'm hoping someone will be able to help me select work pants as well.

    Thank you very much. And happy new year to you all :)

    I'm new to this forum, but it looks like a great way to find trends in menswear, which I find pretty drab and dull overall. (Is it just me that finds it interesting that on Mad Men all the women's clothes look dated, but the men's clothes look classic? Men's fashion don't change all the much.) Anyway, I love good workwear. I'm especially fond of Carhartt pants, and the Riggs by Wrangler shorts are excellent in the summer. I like the ruggedness of the look and feel, and they look great on many different body types. I buy my workwear from a local store here in Sacramento, but they also have a great website with fantastic prices. I highly recommend checking out BareBones Workwear (http://barebonesworkwear.com).
