TOUGHER: Workwear by Women for Women
TOUGHER was founded in 2015 when founder and former Iowa farm kid, Stacey Gose reached her peak of frustration over how poorly women are served by the workwear industry. She was simply tired of shopping for menswear and she knew other women were too.

Stacey of TOUGHER
TOUGHER Founder, Stacey Gose, was never afraid to get her hands dirty. But after years of farming on her family’s heritage farm or managing her property in Oregon, she was sick of struggling to find workwear that fit and was durable enough for her. Taking the problem into her own hands, she left a 10-year career in healthcare to complete her MBA from the University of Oregon and found TOUGHER. Her mission is to create the apparel she always wanted but could never find for professional tradeswomen and do-it-yourselfers who deserve durable, comfortable, and stylish workwear.
