ARMED PROFESSIONAL WORK WEAR... Now available in Calgary

Armed Work Wear

Like many new ideas and companies Armed Work Wear's story begins with a problem. The problem that plagued painters and many others for years was that all of the work pants on the market did not work. The fit wasn’t right or the fabric would wear out too quickly. The bottom line was that what was needed was a pair of pants that were durable, coamfortable, and most importantly were like any other high quality tool. Most work wear today is designed in an office by a group of clothing designers who don’t know what it is like to work in the settings that their products are meant to be used in. Their fabrics are chosen more to meet a certain price point than to provide the best possible product. Armed Work Wear was designed by professionals for profesionals.

Calgary South Decorating, and Midnapore Paint & Decor, are proud to offer this line of quality work wear that we know will provide you with many hours of reliable service.
