Craftsman and Teflon “Get Into Gear” Contest

I have worked in the construction industry for over 20 years and I have worn my share of work clothes. Some of the clothes were destroyed within a few days of purchase. Other items lasted many years and kept me protected from weather, dirt, and injuries. I also do small projects around the house. In both of these environments, I need good, durable work wear that is comfortable and stylish.

Sears has teamed up with DuPont to produce a line of clothing that that meets all of these qualifications whether you’re drilling an oil well in Wyoming or cutting the grass at home in Texas. All items in this new Craftsman line have Teflon® fabric protector built into the fabric so you won’t have to worry about ruining your clothes while you’re trying to get the job done.

I wore the long-sleeve Craftsman work shirt to one of my jobsite visits and several of the workers asked where they could get one. Surprisingly, the shirt was able to breathe and kept me relatively cool in the Texas heat. The tightly-woven fabric of this button-down shirt is wrinkle-resistant and has the water repellency of Teflon fabric protector. I love the sturdy, tough feel of the fabric. It feels much more durable than some shirts made by other brands.

For all of you guys who work hard and aren’t afraid to get a little dirt under your fingernails, I’d like to give you an opportunity to win a $50 Sears Gift Card to buy a set of Craftsman work clothes. To enter the contest, leave a comment answering the following question:

What has been your least favorite job?

  1. My least favorite job was when i was in high school. I worked on a clean up crew for a plant!

    • my first and worst job was working at McDonald’s. I cooked alot and was always covered in grease and felt like a grease monkey and I also had to tear down the ice cream machine and shake machine every nite before closing and wash all the parts and put  them back together again in the morning before we opened and only had an hour to do both

  15. My least favorite job was working in a factory.  I was 14 and it was illegal at the time to work in that setting, but I needed to make some money for the summer.  There was no air conditioning and it was really dirty.  I was the only girl!
