X-treme from F Engel
SAID by F Engel to be recognised ‘the world over’ for its range of comfortably fitting, stylish and practical workwear, the company adds that it has built further on its reputation by introducing a collection of slim-fit, stretchable work trousers which ‘allow wearers to be especially comfortable in any work situation – and look and feel smart at the same time’.
Called ‘X-treme’, the trousers are made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton reportedly incorporating a specially developed mechanical stretch factor; they’re available in various choices both with and without useful hanging pockets.
The company says: ‘Designed to offer as much comfort and functional, day-to day uses as possible, each garment has a smooth, inner-crotch seam panel and patches of highly stretchable and ventilated material at the backs of the knees and seat areas to help keep cool and provide maximum flexibility while bending or kneeling.
‘There are two spacious slanted pockets at the front, two back pockets and a mobile phone pocket with a flap on the right thigh; there’s a standard one on the left which has an extra inner, zipped compartment.’
The company says it’s ‘thought of everything’ with more useful features including a ruler pocket with extra sections for tools, tool straps and Velcro-fastened, knee-reinforced pockets with two kneepad positions for height adjustment.
‘Reflector strips are built in behind the knees for greater visibility and the trousers have an extra deep hem so the length can be increased if required.
‘Depending on the model number chosen, the Engel ‘X-treme’ Slim-Fit Stretchable Work Trousers are available in a black, black/anthracite grey, Forest green/black and Mocha Brown/black in sizes 42-66. Item numbers to look for are: 0360-186, 0361-186, 0362-740 and 0363-740.’
