Fashion for DIYers
But that’s about to change with a wave of workwear designed with the modern tradesman, handyman, or gardener in mind.
The modern range is equipped with multi-function pockets, durable material and even a hammer holster, but doesn’t compromise on style.
The low-waist, slim-fit, drop-crotch pants allow a seamless transition from the construction site to after-hours drinks.
“The modern man thinks about their appearance and are looking for fashionable designs which combine modern styling with workwear durability,” says Leigh Eam, ELEVEN Workwear’s Designer.

DIY Clothing Hacks
Need more functionality from your workwear wardrobe? Try out these interesting ideas.
Turn an old skirt into a handy tool apron that’s perfect for DIYing. All you need to do is wear it backwards and use the pockets to store tools.
Create a handy hammer holster using a piece of PVC pipe. Make an appropriate sized cutout for your hammer and cut two slots to loop your belt through.
Make a screw holder from a pool noodle, just cut it to size and twist the screws in to hold them in place while you work.
Combine both these ideas and recycle an old water bottle to create a belt-mounted cup to hold screws.
Turn your belt into a tape measure. Just glue a flexible tape measure to the inside of your belt and you can make measurements on the go.
