The company’s new range of trousers feature Cordura® fabric panels and offer the best of both worlds-high resistance and modern looks. Cordura® Nyco fabrics are made from an intimate blend of 50 percent nylon 6,6 and 50 percent cotton and are eengineered to provide the ideal balance of durability and comfort. The abrasion resistance of Cordura® Nyco fabrics offers a substantially higher abrasion resistance over standard poly/cotton fabrics. Bosseur® chose a fabric made by Klopman and weighing 245 g/m2. The French company is launching three new pant styles—Cyrrus, Volti and X-Trem—all designed to offer stylish yet comfortable designs in tough environments such as masonry androofing. Each one incorporates high tenacity Cordura® Nyco fabrics for increased resistance to wear and tear. Bosseur® has specialized in workwear designs since its founding nearly 20 years ago. The company, based in the Tarn area of France, is well-known for its wide variety of functional trouser offerings. Bosseur® prides itself in delivering apparel that meets and exceeds their customers’ expectations. Before launching a new item, Bosseur® prototypes are field-tested by a panel of artisans and workers to make sure each product thoroughly fulfills end-user needs. Some of the key features developed by the French brand include: • Ergonomic cuts: From shaped waists with higher back panels for added protection, to specific ergonomically functional styling, each trouser is designed with an eye for all around comfort and ease of movement. • Durability: The garment ranges make extensive use of Cordura® Nyco fabric, the outstanding durability qualities of which are particularly beneficial to those areas of the garment prone to the most wear and tear, such as knees, thighs and back. Shock- absorbing material is added to pants made for work situations that involve kneeling positions. • Practicality: Each design is equipped with multiple pockets for the specific tools the trade, but Bosseur® goes one step further in matters of ease of use by making symmetrical right and left pockets thereby offering the same practical features to left-handed and right- handed wearers. For high agility required end-uses, pockets can be detached and placed in two directions to accommodate horizontal and vertical working positions. Beyond their functional characteristics, these new additions to the Bosseur® range also stand out for their edgy “streetwear” looks. With their intricate seaming and contrasting topstitching they have the design credentials to please many urbanites as well as those who will most benefit from their features, the workers themselves.
