  • A unique utility shirt with wide sleeves, spacious bust and streamlined to the waist. This shirt is flattering and functional with a pen or tool holder and a d-ring attachment for extra accessories.

    Also attempting to address the common issue many body types face of having one size ‘on-top’ and one size ‘down-bottom’ This garment can be paired with the SUK work pants to create a full body fit out, similar to that of the boiler suit, but with more flexibility around sizing.

    Material:

    SUK make all their classic styles from a heavy duty 310 gsm 100% Fairtrade cotton drill, with a lightly brushed finished. This means it’s heavy duty, breathable and soft to the touch. As this is natural material, this fabric does have its limitations: like most 100% cottons, with constant wear, tear and laundering, the cotton can weaken over time. So whilst our styles are designed for long term, day to day use, if you are kneeling on abrasive surfaces regularly, we suggest investing in some knee pads to avoid rips and holes. 

    About SÜK

    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.
