Where it all began; the SÜK quest for the perfect streamline boiler suit to accentuate a feminine figure. The culmination of several prototypes & years of research, the quality of our boiler is impeccable.
Made of a flexible, hard-wearing 310 gsm cotton drill, the SÜK boiler allows the body to perform complicated tasks whilst keeping you protected. Fully enclosed, reinforced seams for maximum strength and comfort. Brass hardware detailing. This garment is made to be lived, worn and worked in.
Model is 153cm and wears a short body size 8.
Spending her twenties on building sites, farms and long-haul ships, brand founder and creative director Mimosa Schmidt knows what it means to get her hands dirty. Often working in hyper masculine spaces, at times being the only woman on site, during these formative years she also learnt what it means to be watched on the job. Her femininity, in the context of hard labour, was still wrongly seen to imply weakness, incompetence, and inexperience.
Dressed in standard-issue, ill fitting workwear, she felt overlooked from the get go. A feeling that was exacerbated by the harassment and isolation she endured, for which gender seemed to be the only catalyst. Slogging it out in sagging overalls and baggy workshirts, she started to dream up designs that would empower those who have to work doubly hard to earn the respect most others are given freely.
Enter SÜK Workwear. The culmination of years of research and inspired design prototypes, SÜK is built on the ethos of celebrating all workers as worthy.
Prewashed to prevent shrinkage, and surprisingly soft. A lightly brushed, 100% cotton drill that feels like an old favourite. At 310 gsm our garments are built to last, & will accrue character with age. Every stage of garment manufacturing has been conducted to the highest ethical standard: from fabric sourcing to factory production, right down to the small details — like the 100% vegan leather patches on our back pockets.
