Original Workwear Roots
The single knee painter AKA the OG Painter is a corner stone of the core classics collection and one of our Crockett factory originals dating back to the 70s.
Originally the OG Painter was cut in a 12oz rigid natural drill specifically for use in the paint trade. Over the years, at the request of carpenters and construction workers we added more fabrics to the cut sheets including Hickory, Denim, White Drill and Duck Canvas.
Here are some of the simple details of the OG Painter which we admire...
Deep front and back pockets with a heavy pocketing fabric.
Rectangular tool pockets on the wearers left and right leg, with a brush loop on the back side of the wearers left leg (it's located on the back side of the leg so when climbing up or down a ladder the brush wont catch a rung and end up in a mess on the floor).
Triple needle chain stitched, flat felled seams, robust enough to last as long as the lifetime of our toughest fabrics.
The details and simplicity of construction across all these fabrics are inspiring and serve as a reference point when adding new workwear styles into the EU collection...
