Looking Your Very Best
When Dancing With Mother Nature
Gardening pants have become the fashion wear of the yard and garden. And garden gloves are much more than work gloves. Today the fashion statement for working around the house outdoors is anything but utilitarian.
Besides reinforced knees with pockets, snap-on knee pads and velcro closures, the garden pants now must be made of sustainable fabric, adjustable or elastic waistbands and cuffs that can be rolled up and buttoned in place. A fashionable logo doesn’t hurt either.
And colors? Well, this ain’t your grandma’s coveralls. In fact, if you can imagine it, you probably can find it somewhere.
Mostly created for women (guys don’t think of these things), gardening pants now come in a wide, wide range of designer and standard colors. Riding on the heels of the recent surge of women in the construction and remodeling fields, including the increase in sales of power tools for women, the marketing gurus discovered there was a huge women’s market in the garden/landscaping world and went to work. It didn’t take long for the fashion, sportswear and clothing makers to get in the game.
So now you can find clothing designed to be comfortable in any weather, tough, stain resistant, lightweight, colorful and created to actually clean with just a brush-off and a shake so that bringing dirt into your home after an afternoon in the garden is nearly eliminated. In addition to that, some of the garden apparel today is created to actually offer protection from stickers, stingers and splinters!
Gardening gloves span the range from those old, stiff blue and grey one-size-fits-all mitts to beautiful, custom fit designer models created by orthopedic surgeons to offer more secure grip and promote natural dexterity while keeping dirt and debris from getting in around the cuffs. And here’s where the men come back into the picture. Guys know well fitting, strong, durable gloves are a necessity. Women know that, too, but some may be inclined to choose fashion over function. Now you can have both.
Hats and boots are enjoying a revolution too. Like many other things now, manufacturers and retailers realize people—both men and women—want choice. We consider ourselves to be individuals and therefore have individual likes, tastes and needs. Gardening attire reflects those desires. So, start looking for apparel that fits you and fits your gardening lifestyle!
