Product InnovationsINVISTA’s CORDURA® Denim fabric was selected to help bring optimal built-in durability to the new Work Tough Jean from Cat Workwear, without compromising comfort and style. Cat® Workwear’s consumer survey showed that the primary attributes required of a workwear jean were durability (does not tear or rip) and softness (feels comfortable against the skin). CORDURA® Denim fabric offers the authentic look, comfort and feel of a traditional 100 percent cotton denim and is four times more abrasion resistant*.
“CORDURA® Denim fabric was developed as a performance denim solution for garments worn in tough working conditions,” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand marketing director. “We are excited that the Cat design team has chosen to showcase the combined comfort and durable functionality of our denim fabric in their new Work Tough Jean.”
With features such as articulated knees, darted back pockets and improved colorfastness, the Work Tough Jean is part of the Cat workwear range that is engineered for long-lasting performance to help you work hard and play hard.
