Mascot International A/S

Tested to work

Mascot Hardwear – for the modern workplace. As the requirements of today’s workplace undergo a transformation, modern workwear adapts by conforming to the changing trends. Latest communication technology, such as mobile phones, mp3 players, headsets are becoming an essential part of the workplace and workwear designs that incorporate these equipment and makes allowances for its protection are becoming popular. Mascot responds to these requirements by launching the new Hardwear range with numerous features that considers the wearer’s convenience and comfort such as pockets, loops, pleats, ventilations not to mention cord holders and wire passages, among others.Carefully thought combinations: New techno-materials, by itself or combined with other fabrics, are not only for special use or leisurewear. Mascot has combined a specially developed canvas stretch material, which is tone-in-tone with Cordura®. Both materials are twice as strong as nylon and washable at 60°. The new winter jackets are either made of the strong Cordura® or the breathable, wind- and waterproof Canvas Mascotex®.

Also available is a parka jacket lined with the temperature regulating Outlast® material.Loose and comfortable T-shirts and polo shirts are a must and the coarse-weave gives it a raw look that perfectly matches the trendy cargo- and zip off trousers or the new shorts. These are available in each of the Hardwear colours namely, black, anthracite, khaki, navy, white and royal blue. Tested to workAfter a series of laboratory tests conducted on the materials used on the Hardwear range, several tests were conducted in actual work situations. Constructive feedback was provided by different age groups and craftsmen from various trades. The collection was then adjusted based on the critical points raised. The result is a functional and elegant range that is more durable than ever before.
