Trying to See if Some Sort of Comfortable Elastic Long Work Pants Exist
Last edited 24/10/2019 - 20:44
So started working as a cleaner which is great keeps me busy and I feel really fulfilled and not bored at home though I miss the long naps and sleeping in but I am hoping the money will be good have not gotten my first Payslip yet still early days probably end of this week or next week.
Any ways so as a cleaner I need to wear required clothing which for my job includes :
- long work pants (not denim)
- enclosed leather shoes (using some old rivers one for now but I need to replace it I am going to research skechers and see if they have any good one.. Honestly they are not that strict but don't want something too ridiculous looking comfort is the most important because I am basically walking non stop almost for 8 hours a day and I take the train so still lots of walking don't worry I am working on getting a car keep posted for that further update :))
- long sleeve shirt (now interestingly I think you can wear almost anything guaranteed it is long sleeve and not to thin or has holes but like branded stuff is ok have noticed some other co-workers wearing anything as long as it is long sleeve some even wear a short sleeve shirt over the long sleeve shirt but I am good on shirts no help needed there)
What I have come to the ozbargain brains trust for is to see if I can find a long work pants (think what tradesmen and construction workers wear) which I have but with something more comfier than the button in the middle and stiff waistline.
I am hoping maybe there is a long work pant that maybe has like a stretchy elastic in the middle where the belt goes instead of the stiff common we normally see.
There has got to be something out there and honestly I would pay over $200 for one because the comfort factor would mean I won't get stressed as fast and have more energy not worrying about my tight belt line.
Before anyone starts saying to lose weight or run some more fat boy I must say thanks to this job I think I am or will a lot because I am on my feet a lot and even if I eat twice what I was when I was sedentary at home just sleeping or on my computer all day the amount of work I am doing means I am burring a lot of energy fast.
Any ways I digress, so yeah looking for a long work pant with a very comfortable flexible mid section or the garter or belt area whatever it is called it would mean so much to me if I can find something less stiff and with more flexibility.
If possible one with a cargo pocket and two back pockets as well as deep side pockets as my current pants has 5 pockets and they are all really helpful like I use 4/5 pockets every day so far maybe just my back left is untouched (needs some love).
Lastly but honestly not that important I will probably ask this at another time as it is not as time sensitive but if anyone can recommend some really solid or comfortable enclosed leather shoes (just means no holes and not too short but honestly any normal shoe will do) I would really really appreciate it as I need some good durable work shoes that feel good on my feet even after 14 hours (rough time I have been getting home I do some shopping and eating out after work sometimes to treat myself after a hard day's work and it feels good sometimes sometimes).
So yeah with both those items now finally fully described and posted I ask you ozbargain for your eternal knowledge and experience to help me on this quest to find these awesome work items to help me get through the day.
I just remembered that I might be also on the hunt for a new bag something slightly bigger than a laptop bag with maybe a few extra compartments to help the ease of sorting some extra work stuff that I sometimes bring to make things smoother in case I am far from a cleaner room.
As an example it took me the 4th day to find the disposable gloves so I just supplied my own thanks to the latest Woolworths ozbargain deal and not I need to find some disposable masks probably just dust or P1 for now as backup since I have not seen some and had to bring some from home but I am running out.
Any ways yeah this job is still fun still first week so things are still new and exciting but maybe in a few years time it will feel like ozbargain (lol bad joke) I am kidding I still love ozbargain even more than when I very first laid eyes upon Her? Him? It? Thing? Attack helicopter?
Ok alienc signing off bye for now have a nice day.
Edit: I am sorry everyone I must admit I am going through a tough time and I use ozbargain to destress life can be scary sometimes you never know what to expect or what might come next. Sincerest apologies if that phrase even means something any more. Maybe I should get a journal but I like the back and forth with you all honestly it is my only enjoyable interaction in this world. Grim dark huh.
