Craftsman trousers guide



Craftsman trousers guide





Craftsman trousers, work trousers or utility trousers? No matter what you choose to call the trousers that you work in, we most definitely have a model that suits your specific needs. All our trousers are designed to be functional and comfortable, but the models differ in some key respects.
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
We divide our craftsman trousers into three categories: Original, Dynamic and Ultimate, depending on their features. From classic FAS trousers to innovative craftsman tights, our guide for work trousers includes a selection of our most popular garments and helps you find the perfect pair.

Ultimate – a given choice for selective craftsmen

The Fristads Ultimate collection consists of our most innovative and advanced craftsman trousers. With unique designs and top of the line materials, these trousers take workwear to a higher level. This range includes full-stretch trousers as well as craftsman joggers and workwear tights. Those who choose Fristads Ultimate garments are often selective and like trying new styles – early adopters who value freedom of movement and want the latest and greatest in workwear.

How craftsman trousers came to Sweden nearly 100 years ago

In 1925, Fristads’ founder John Magnuson started manufacturing workwear in the little village Fristad, right outside Borås. The industrial era was booming, and good workwear was in short supply. John Magnuson saw the potential in the market and when his attempts to import workwear from America failed, he decided to start manufacturing it himself. Fristads was the first company in Sweden to make the classic craftsman trousers that subsequently became popular among professional users across Europe. Now, nearly 100 years later, there are a wide variety of craftsman trousers in different styles, colours and materials for both men and women. Which one is your favourite?
