Why Painters Wear White.
—White is the easiest color to bleach.
—A painter with white clothes that are mostly white suggests a painter of exceptional skill (or perhaps lacking experience).
—Because that’s what the unions decided painters should wear.
—Because dyed fabric is more expensive.
—It’s hot outside and white clothing remains the coolest.
Like a lot of smart and practical workwear, the details associated with doing your job well end up making you look interesting and unconventional in the process.
These are casual pants that look great rolled or cuffed, with bucks, deck shoes, or sneakers. They hold all your essentials, and who knows, maybe a streak or two of paint on these could start a fashion trend (not that we encourage such things).
