Though trends come and go, timeless wardrobe aesthetics such as workwear never seem to lose their allure. It's easy to see why — workwear is functional by nature, but it's also easily-styled. Best of all, it doesn't involve having to break the piggy bank thanks to OG brands like Dickies and Carhartt coming through with the affordable staples.

And these labels aren't just the go-tos of heavy-duty workers and shoppers on a budget, though. Kanye West has been known to indulge in wearing Dickies and Carhartt jackets, not only on the streets but on red carpets too, proving that affordable workwear has a place in every man's wardrobe.

For those looking for hard-wearing goods, Highsnobiety's resident curators have picked out some workwear essentials, from jackets and boiler suits to functional vests.

Scroll on for a look at more affordable workwear essentials.
