    Never seen Ben Davis. Carhart for outerwear. Dickies for regular clothes.

    Carhartt, Dickies used to love Ben Davis but it is hard to find around here now.

    I only wear it to work for brutal conditions/gigs since it's not approved for uniform wear. Luckily they make exceptions when it's -15 and I'm stuck doing traffic shit at an accident.

    Most of my use was farm related, when I owned one, and I was a toasty mother fucker with the Artic gear on.
