    Sruffs boots, best I ever owned, bought from PTS - have rubber over toe so take some wear when kneeling down.

    Been wearing Snickers for nearly three decades after recommend by electrician - Brilliant! I like the all in one, which is a plumber's outfit. However, wearing the kecks at the moment because all in ones wore out and can't afford new ones.

    I checked out Blakelader and was impressed with quality, but being short-ass the knee pads end up around my shins (think 'cotton' - Hank Hill's dad) - gutted because I liked the sound of the breathable fabric compared to snickers.

    Up to you to what you buy and feel comfortable in. Alot of lads here could argue about clothes...

    Ive had my snickers workwear for 3 yrs now going strong. If you look after them and dont rub silicone, gunk and all the rest of plumbing bits on them then im sure you'll keep them clean just like any other workwear...

    I prefer snickers they are strong hard wearing and have good stitching so they dont pull when you catch them on something>

    Don't understand this, my snickers fit perfectly, truck is to go to your local workwear shop and try a few on. I only wear snickers floorlayers trousers for the good kneepads, and the fact that they last longer than any of the other trogs I've had in the past. Last pair lasted a year.

    I always found Strauss Directs clothing to be very good, German made as I recall and not too expensive.

    I have actually just had some stitching go on my Snickers, although I think they do come with a life time stitching guarentee

    Snickers, had the floor layer trousers, used every day for 8 months on a building site and for crawling around servicing cars, couldn't recomend them more highly, will deffinetly re-invest in a pair when they wear out

    Dewalt trousers with knee pads, Ambler steel toe cap shoes and a warm t-shirt and jumper. Dewalt trousers are great with lots of pockets.

    Mark.
