Workwear has taken the fashion world by storm. Celebs have cashed in, and hypebeasts who’ve never stepped foot on a construction site are dressed like the flyest project managers in town. But for the dads who don’t fall in either category, the very same pieces are practical and much-appreciated.

One of the highest-rated work pants Carhartt offers, these 98% cotton bottoms have plenty of pockets for whatever needs quick storing. The knees are also double-layered to add knee pads if necessary or to keep out pesky debris or dust.

If your dad puts his work shirts through the ringer, the best options are durable and affordable. Wrangler’s shirts are thick and sweat- and wrinkle-resistant, while cotton construction ensures they’re comfortable at work or for DIY jobs around the house.
