one shop

there may be others, there does seem to be some decent kit on the market at the mo

flame proof trousers for a tenner and rather nice warm weather boots for £40 was worth a punt

i have had stuff from them before

timing matters

trousers that are made not to burn, lovely
the leather kit is nice for apron and gloves, kriegs marine deck trousers are nomex kecks and a comforting thought

I imagine flame proof coatings are PFAS based, but I don't really know.

I guess you'll be easy to spot wandering around York.

the trousers are unremarkable to look at, made of aramid and viscose, nomex by another name. professional repairs are charming, almost invisible and a tribute the kriegs marine embroidery unit
as rough work trousers they would be stylish, as stylish they are
sailors huhhh

the boots are nice, i was wise to go for half a size above usual nominal size to give room for gel insoles(i really like gel insoles), so if you dont need that go for the size you usually do
for so called g1 they are in very good condition and have never been badly(or otherwise) polished or work worn, tech end haix at under a quarter of new price

once i have softened them i recon they might be my boots of choice

good shopping, odd what you can find when you need it

ps leather the apron, big gloves and hood are a striking look, no one will notice flame proof pants

the last two pairs of flame proof pants in my size are ordered

trousers that fit my shape are rare so i grabbed them before i regretted it

iirc they have larger sizes, perfect if you play with fire or potential fire in any capacity, comfy as well

£5 a leg, bargain

the boots are nice
