The entrepreneurial spirit, dedication and hard work that Matt has put into his business is obvious. Welding is an art and must be practiced with care and perfection. Matt uses our Homestead jacket and Boss work pants giving him protection, comfort and functionality, as you can see in the images above.
Matt is a perfectionist and there is no reason why his clothes shouldn’t reflect this. We design our products with the same mindset that Matt works; perfect finishing, quality and durability. Below you can see some of Matts favourite pieces that he wears on a daily basis when he’s either welding in his workshop or teaching classes.
Both Eileen and Ryan are involved through every step in the production process, from buying to delivery. Each piece is then cut individually at their work shop in LA using heavy duty saws.
As the process moves into the finer details of production, smaller and more precise machinery is used. The use of protective and durable clothing such as our Seaside Bar Tobacco Apron come in great handy. Eileen is able to stow tools such as rulers, pencils or files in the versatile front pockets.
We were blown away by the attention to detail, love and passion that goes into every single piece that Ryan and Eileen at The Wooden Palate make. Less is more and everything is made to last a life time. The clear connection between The Wooden Palate and DePalma Workwear is extremely clear - high quality products with exquisite design that last!
We followed Pete from Sinister Custom Concepts in North Ridge, Los Angeles for a day in his workshop and were given a glimpse of his daily life and some of his amazing ongoing projects, among them a gold 1964 Impala!
Pete doesn’t need holster- or multiple compartment pockets when he works on his cars, so our Jungleland service pant made out of robust cotton canvas with a few functional pockets meets his needs perfectly and have a relaxed look and feel. They also look great when meeting customers or potential clients, representing Sinister Custom Concepts in the best possible way.
Even in California the temperatures change over the course of a day and also moving in and out of the workshop. Throwing on our Duty padded over shirt solves this problem. It has reinforced elbows, front and back panels for durability and large front pockets with flap and snap button closure. It comes in a strong Dazzling Blue or Red flannel finish.
We leave Sinister Custom Concepts impressed by all the projects and fantastic machinery and the great people working there feeling good that we are able to supply them with workwear that can stand up to all the shop’s greatness.
The quality and comfort that Joshua needs in his clothing is found in our t-shirts and hoodies. They are perfect for how and where he works giving him the comfort, durability and quality that he needs. It is vital for Joshua to be able to remove or add layers depending on what he is working on and our t-shirts and hoodies allow him to do so.
Adding the Seaside bar raw denim apron has several advantages. Joshua is able to have quick access to his pencils, ruler and other tools thanks to the large front pocket and tool loops. We have also added adjustable fit at the neck and around the waist to increase comfort and usability.
To kick this campaign off we have followed Isreal "Izzy" Wilder, a construction worker based in LA with his own construction company Synthesis Construction Corp. As Izzy works both indoors and outdoors, it is important for him to be able to add and remove layers as easily as possible. Using t-shirts, sweatshirts and our Omaha jacket he is able to quickly adapt to rising or dropping temperatures.
The Technical features that we have in our Omaha jacket are perfect for how Izzy works. With the storm cuff extending slightly longer over the top of the hand, it protects from wind and rain. The new reflective zip pullers increase visibility during the darker hours of the day, safety first!
With our BOSS work pant you have several functional pockets where you can stow your ruler, hammer and other essentials such as nails, screws, pens, measuring tape, you name it and there is a pocket for it. Flexible 4-way ripstop panels in the crotch area, back yoke and knees increase mobility, comfort and reinforced durability, which we know you will need.
