You don’t have to be a textile engineer to know when an article of clothing just doesn’t feel or perform right. Sometimes fabrics are less about innovation and problem solving, and more about the status quo. But our TRUEWERK product team can’t leave well enough alone. That’s how the T1 fabric came to be.
Trade pros have plenty of obstacles to navigate on the daily, but hot weather might be up there as one of the toughest to conquer. You’ve heard the phrase, ‘you can’t control the weather,’ well, we’re doing our best to change that. The T1 fabric offers premier performance in hot weather, no matter the trade. When the sun does everything in its power to slow you down, you need workwear that’s on the cutting edge of heat-resisting innovation. That’s why we developed our proprietary T1 fabric to offer the highest level of hot weather performance.
So, what does that mean for you? For trades in which exposure to hot weather and sun are unavoidable, these common problems can add up to a less-than-desirable day. Let’s start with the comfort factor. You know what’s worse than being trapped in heavy, stiff material while trying to move your body in ways with which only trade pros and gymnasts are familiar? Doing exactly that under the hot sun. But the T1 fabric has flex for days. The four-way stretch allows you to reach out and bend without your workwear putting the squeeze on you. Next, what about overheating—the kind where you can feel warmth radiating between your skin and the layer of material and it takes all you’ve got to avoid ripping off your clothes; which can be problematic on the jobsite. The T1 fabric is specially designed with greater airflow and “float yarns” that makes things breezy and comfortable next to the skin. And last, but not least, who enjoys that sticky, heavy feeling of sweat in any state—wet, dry, wet and dry. Never fear, our product team and their impressive research, critical-thinking, and creativity have developed a special interior finish. This transports sweat away four times faster than untreated fabric.
The T1 fabric is our response to a real set of problems facing some of the common materials frequently worn in the trades. Unlike canvas or denim, which restrict your movement, weigh you down, and feel oh-so-hot, the T1 fabric technology combats each of these issues and we’re not done yet. Never, in fact. Because once our product team has carefully found a solution, they continue to analyze new processes, determine effectiveness, and innovate—just like you.
Surely a fabric so technically advanced couldn’t look good, too. That’d be asking for too much. But guess what? The T1 line of products, featuring said fabric, manage to walk the line of technical and good looking without a hitch. Should we call it industrial chic? That’s going too far, but the bottom line is, we think you deserve to feel and look good while you’re out there doing what you do best. Shop our T1 WerkPant, T1 WerkShort, and T1 Overalls and let us know what you think. We’ll weather this hot weather together.
