New workwear for new season

Treat yourself to some new gear as we head into summer and not only stay cool but also be cool

When you spend most of your waking hours behind the wheel of a truck, tractor, or heavy machinery, comfortable clothing is a must.


Quality fabric and cut is worth the effort and outlasts the ‘budget packs’ typically found at clearance stores.

We’re fans of these New Zealand-designed and made brands, along with Oliver work boots, which, although from across the ditch, have been the boot of choice for many Kiwis for generations



  • Safety and comfort combine with the Tuffviz hi-vis short-sleeved polo shirt from Betacraft. It’s made from microfiber for breathability, comfort, and quick drying and is available in lime and navy, and orange and navy, from small to 3XL.
  • Practical hard-working shorts, the Betacraft canvas jean shorts are available in beige or black. With five pockets and a practical longer leg fit, they’re smart enough for weekend wear, too.



  • Swazi’s style of shorts may be popular and commonly found, but with shorts this short, it’s worth paying for quality and the right cut. Made from hard-wearing brushed tricot knit fabric, the Swazi poley shorts are short enough to allow full freedom of movement, yet long enough to keep your indecents decent.
  • Every wardrobe should have a few of the classic black Swazi singlets—a thermal that not only keeps you warm but also doesn’t overheat when worn under another top. Plus, it has an extra-long back, so when you bend over, it won’t ride up.
  • Because the Kiwi summer can sometimes throw in a chilly day or three, the lightweight Swazi micro delivers amazing comfort and warmth and rolls up into a tiny 160gm package (perfect to keep in your vehicle).



  • If there’s one thing you should never scrimp on, it’s quality work boots. The new A55 range from Oliver is fantastic quality—comfortable enough to wear all day (and night), plus, it’s packed with safety features.
  • The range includes zip sides, lace up, and elastic sides. Oliver has been making boots since 1885. Whatever model you choose, ultimate comfort is guaranteed.
