Did you shop on Black Friday? Did you cash in on any door busters? An interesting fact about some door buster products that are offered for sale on Black Friday is that many have been produced specifically for sale on Black Friday. These products may not be of the same quality nor have the same features of those products sold throughout the year. When shopping sale advertisements let the buyer beware.
Here are a few shopping questions to ponder when looking for that special gift or replacing your favorite pair of hiking pants or jeans. Did you ever pay top dollar for a pair of outdoor pants or jeans only to be disappointed in how the pants or jeans performed once you wore them? You thought that buying that major hiking or climbing brand’s pants or jeans meant that you were getting high quality and durability. Instead, what you purchased did not last. If you wear big and tall sizes, how many of the outdoor major brand Christmas catalogs this year carry XXL – 4XL sizes? Not many. Shirts may go up to XXL or XXXL sizes, but the pants they sell almost never go above waist size 48. This practice ignores a huge segment of outdoor apparel shoppers. You know what happens to these catalogs? They go in the trash. There just may be a solution for both of these questions. Did you know that Wrangler has a line of rugged outdoor pants and shirts that come in waist sizes up 60 inches and shirts up to 4XL?
The Wrangler collection of rugged pants and shirts is called Riggs Workwear. Wrangler has been making jeans for a long time. This brand started back in the 1900s as the Blue Bell Overall Company in Greensboro, North Carolina. In 1943, the Blue Bell Overall Company purchased the Casey Jones Company, a manufacturer of work clothes. One of Casey Jones brands was Wrangler and the rest is history.
One of Wrangler’s® RIGGS WORKWEAR® most popular pant is the Ripstop Ranger. This pant is perfect for hiking and backpacking. The Ranger is constructed from 100% 10 oz. cotton ripstop. These pants are comfortable and can withstand the wear and tear experienced on the trail.
Ripstop is the “go to” fabric when choosing pants or jeans where hiking or backpacking in the rain is possible because ripstop dries out very quickly. If you have experience with ripstop material, you know that it can become wrinkled when using a dryer. Because of the weight of the fabric, these pants may also wrinkle. A solution to this is to put the dryer on air or just hang pant to air dry.
The Wrangler® RIGGS WORKWEAR® collection features something for every hardworking man, including the leisurely outdoorsman. If you watch sports on TV, you could not have missed the commercial of Brett Favre promoting Wrangler jeans. He has become the face of the collection.
As the weather across America has started to cool, Wrangler Riggs Workwear should be part of any man’s outdoor clothing collection whether they are camping, hunting, doing yard work, or fixing things around the house. So, this holiday shopping season, check out the Wrangler Riggs Workwear collection at an outdoor retailer in your town.
Until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day n the great outdoors.
