Even if you don't tack-weld submarines for a living, everyday use can still place inordinate strain on your clothes -- like when you're squatting to retrieve a Bud from the crisper, or buffing your way to a promotion. Get work-tough casual-wear, from Dunderdon.
Started by a carpenter in '97, Dunderdon began as a pants-smith for Sweden's laboring class: builders, artisans, and the men who tirelessly wield "the IKEA Tööl". They've since expanded into a full line of office and lay-about gear, but've maintained the materials and construction elements that made their original duds so bulletproof -- notably raw selvage, industrial-strength nylon, "army satin", and water-/flame-resistant treatings, leaving you vulnerable only to Wind and Earth. Spring offerings include a range of windbreakers and heavier jackets, 10 pants varietals (Japanese denim, cotton herringbone, seersucker, more), polos and tees, and short- and long-sleeve buttondowns like the Hickory, stitched with two integrated side pockets, for the hand-warming benefits of a hoodie minus the mugger-chic of a hood.
Because not everyone's a lounge-about pencil jockey, Dunderdon still peddles true-to-its-roots gear, like sweat-wicking CoolMax shirts and canvas cotton P7 Panama pants, which rock massive off-color external pockets and removable foam kneepads -- which'll accelerate your corporate ascent so quickly, you'll soon hand them off to the up-and-comer now buffing you.
