I have an Englebert Strauss fleece-lined work jacket and three pairs of work trousers which I have been using for a considerable time (around a farm) and they are excellent in every way. Sadly, the exact type of jacket has been discontinued or I would have bought another. The clothes are tough, they wash well. Initially I had one of their belts, the kind with a buckle that is supposed to grip, but that was useless. Now I use a proper leather belt. The company does tend to bombard me with catalogues that simply have to be binned, they are far too thick and contain far too much information and too many types of clothing aimed at all different industries such as baking (white gear), and mending gas pipelines (which is done by girls wielding huge spanners). Whilst these catalogues do not prompt me to make purchases, I am certainly a fan of Strauss workwear.
