A little over a year ago, I was able to try out the Bluffworks brand for the first time. I am the type of person who really doesn’t mess much with clothing brands – if it works for me, I stick with it. I had largely been an Under Armour guy for everyday wear and travel (as well as running – which isn’t changing anytime soon!) and had been pretty happy with them. But, when the opportunity came to try out Bluffworks, I went for it to see how they would work for me.
My One Year Review of Bluffworks Clothes – Still My Best and Favorite!

Disclaimer: Bluffworks has provided me with some of the Bluffworks clothes I own for review and to keep and I am an affiliate partner with them. All the words and thoughts on these are my own and they have not reviewed my content beforehand. Also, I have personally purchased Bluffworks clothing just because I love the fit and feel that much and I would not feel as good about offering a strong, positive review without doing so.
Three Things That Have Made Them Winners for My Wear
Well, here we are over 1 year later and the clothing items I wear the most – the Bluffworks chinos – are looking and feeling the same way they did when I first got them! None of the other clothes I have worn over the years can lay claim to that so I have been eagerly looking forward to sharing my impression of Bluffworks clothes after one year of some pretty steady, and sometimes rough, wear.
Three aspects of the Bluffworks clothes that I have loved the most for my travel and everyday lifestyle are:
- the lightweight of the material
- the breathability/sweat wicking
- the antibacterial properties of the material.
I am someone who moves around a lot and fast. Having those features in pants automatically put them at the top of the pile for me – and they have delivered each and every time.
I wear the black chinos and navy chinos most days of the week. That means that, on average, I have probably worn each of them over 100 times in the last year – and they still wear and look new. I have zero complaints about them. The shirts have been awesome as well but I do not wear them as much in the summer months due to the high heat (though they can handle some heat even though they are long sleeved).
Built-in Functionality is Awesome
On the off days when I am not wearing a pair of Bluffworks pants, the first indicator that I know they are not on is when I go to put my iPhone in the special rear phone pocket. I have never been the type of person to put my phone in my back pocket because I just know I would break it. Well, Bluffworks thought of people like me and they have put a special pocket above the regular rear pocket that fits a smartphone perfectly.
It is just habit for me now to reach for my phone from there or to put it there – and sometimes I have had near phone disasters when I had realized (almost too late) that I wasn’t wearing a pair of Bluffworks and the phone fell from my hand! 🙂 I have tried that pocket with a regular iPhone, iPhone X, Samsung S8+, and the large Google Pixel 3XL and it has worked great with all of them.
That is part of what I love about the Bluffworks brand. They have delivered fashionable products with tons of built-in functionality for the person that wants comfort on the go. The back pocket is a winner but so is the zippered pockets inside of the regular side pockets. These are great for carrying things like change, cash, cards, and even a passport. They are safe and secure inside of the zipper and you don’t have to worry about scratching any device with a screen in the regular pocket.
The Bluffworks blazer also has a lot of built-in functionality that delivers in whichever ways you need to use it. Not only that, but it is incredibly comfortable and I love that I never need to worry about pulling it out of a suitcase wrinkled. I can pull it out and I am good to go!
I am about to get my new Bluffworks Departure jeans. It has been years since I have worn jeans for more than outdoor work. I am excited about these because I know they will continue in the Bluffworks tradition.
And that is what I have come to appreciate about Bluffworks as a company – I can trust them to deliver. I used to be someone who needed to try on clothes before I bought them and sometimes would return them after wearing them around the house for a day because I didn’t like the fit and feel. With Bluffworks, I can pick clothes out without even trying them out (though you can return them if they don’t work for you!) and know that I am going to really like wearing them.
For me, the biggest test of Bluffworks was going to be how they held up with a year of serious wear. Well, they have come through like champs. For the price, that is a very good thing because you don’t want to replace them ever year! But, I think I can get a whole lot more than a year out of them!
