Tougher is on a mission to make you more comfortable on the job. By “you,” I mean the women out putting in 40+ hours a week on farms, construction sites and factory floors. 

When you work hard every day, having gear that fits well and lasts a long time is a necessity. That’s why everything we make is pro-grade, not fashion-grade, so you can buy it once and use it for years. For real.

Our customers don’t just buy our products; they help design them. Every seam, pocket and hemline is the result of 400+ actual workers weighing in. So please, reach out and tell us what you like, what you don’t, and what you want to see in your workwear. We can’t wait to hear from you.

Recognizing, listening to and serving the women who do tough work is my honor. I promise you this: whatever job you get up every morning to do, your Tougher gear will not let you down. 

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to prove how tough we can be.

About the Founder

Stacey Gose is from Iowa, the kid of fifth-generation farmers. Growing up, she watched the women in her family work hard raising beans, cattle and corn. She has always loved to work outside, and figured she couldn’t be the only one tired of shopping for gear in the men’s section. In 2015, she launched Tougher with a Kickstarter campaign that raised $20,000 in six days (that’s a lot of folks in need of better pants!). Today, she resides in the Pacific Northwest and lives her dream of serving the workers who do all the jobs that need doing.
