Polyester is a synthetic material, while Cotton comes naturally from a plant. When you combine the two materials for work trousers, there are several benefits.
Cotton is a very soft material, with great moisture absorption
Polyester is a far more durable, shrink resistant and colourfast material.
So, when you combine polyester with cotton, you get the best of both: Poly/cotton combines the softness of cotton with the durability of polyester.
Poly cotton work trousers tend to keep their shape and colour, are not prone to wrinkling, and shrink very little, even when washed with warm or hot water.
Some of the most popular poly cotton work trousers are the Dickies Redhawk WD864 Royal Blue work trousers. These are worn widely by tradesmen and on sites acress the UK. More working trousers styles include: Snickers 3214 Tan poly cotton work trousers.
What work trousers are and are not!:"Work trousers" as a description differs to "cargo trousers" - in that cargo trousers typically have external or hanging pockets.
Pleated work trousers: So when you look for polycotton work trousers you can expect plain trousers and even with a permanent crease mark or pleat -such as the Portwest S886 navy Pleated worktrousers or the Portwest Mayo pleated trousers in grey, black or navy or even the Orbit 245gm navy trouser.
Lighweight work trousers: Work trousers are typically 9oz cotton or 250gm. So, if you want lighterweight trousers - for summer wear etc, why not consider the Orbit 205gm lightweight trousers.
