Dexters Decorators Workwear Review

 

I was given the opportunity to do a Dexters decorators workwear review and after just a week of using them I must say… I bloody love them!!

 

The Dexters decorators trousers:

In the past i have switched many different brand decorators trousers, Shield, Albany, dunlop, snickers and dickies and for 1 reason or another theres been something i didnt like about them. Some had good pocket placement but rubbish quality, others wasnt a nice fit, some too heavy etc etc but these trousers are spot on for me. These you can tell they are a decent quality but they are not heavy, and wont be too hot in the summer (although i do believe Dexters also make decorators shorts). I like the pocket layout and they fit perfectly. They look smart, especially with the add on pockets that you can get. The Dexters decorators trousers come with a really comfortable belt. Its almost like a seat belt material with a sturdy easy to use buckle that you can set at any point as you clamp it down at the right fit. All around the belt area are black tags to attach the different pockets too wherever you want.

 

Dexters decorators prep pocket set:

 

I always normally wear decorators trousers with a front pouch to carry all the essentials in (screwdrivers, filling knives, scratch, nail punch, dusting brush, stanley knife, blades etc) and i am forever spending time rummidging through the pouch blind looking for an item which can get frustrating and end up emtying it all looking for said item. At first when i saw the Dexters prep pockets i was a bit sceptical, and i must admit it took me a day or 2 to get used to them but now i absolutely love them. Theres plenty of pocket space for everything you need and now everything has its place which is really easy accessible. Each pouch has 2 plastic clips on to attach to your trousers (see pic), wherever suits you most comfortably, these clips seem sturdy and unlikely to give after repeated use.

 

Dexters decorators prep pocket set:

 

Again, I used to keep a load of my papering stuff just in 1 pouch which could be overcrowded when you got your papering brush in there with everything else. Using these pouches made everything well at hand as and when you need them and has plenty of space for the tools you need. Dexters also do a dedicated decorators scissor pouch but i found it easier and better placed to use the one on the pouch along with the othe tools. The pockets also came with a nice big chunky Dexters pencil which will last ages 🙂

 

Other pockets and jumper:

The jumper is a nice comfortable fit and decent quality, but not overly thick, so pretty much perfect for our english weather most mornings when its a bit too nippy to be wearing just a tshirt but not cold enough to warrent a coat.

The other pockets i received but not managed to use yet are the liquid holder pouch which im not quite sure when i will use, and the paint pot attachment. I’ve a big exterior job coming up with 158 windows, most of which is on a ladder so i will give the paint attachment a go. It seems really sturdy when the pot is attached to you and seems as long as you dont fill it too much it will be fine. It also has a magnetic part on its side to clip your brush to when not in use. Im looking forward to trying it out, Ive seen reviews on the Betsy paint mate on The Forum review page that is the same idea as this, only the Dexters version looks a lot smarter and less of a gimmick.

Thanks for taking time to read my review,
