1620 Work Hoodie Review: HiConsumption
Apr 11, 2019 | By Mike Bitanga
Every notable brand from Carhartt to Patagonia has reinvented the classic hoodie to survive the wear-and-tear of the daily grind. Emerging from the sea of giant names is a small brand called 1620, and they’re making some big noise with their Work Hoodie — which is one of the best revisions of the workwear staple we’ve seen in a while.
The American-made rugged hoodie is constructed using abrasion and melt-resistant cotton blend fleece fabric with a Durable Water Repellent finish. It features a helmet-friendly hood and 500D Cordura Stealth technology pocket with proprietary 1620 catch-all corners to keep your EDC secure. You can even upgrade the already exceptional hoodie with a variety of options, including 500D Cordura reinforced pockets and elbows, as well as a snap button collar. It’s available in two colorways and comes with a lifetime guarantee. You can pre-order the American-made Work Hoodie right now, starting at $78.

WAIST MEASUREMENT - Use a measuring tape to measure the waist circumference of your favorite pair of workpants. All pants tend to stretch out over time so that 32 or 34 you have been wearing might actually be slightly bigger than what the tag says. You can then refer to the waist measurement chart below to pick the perfect waist size. If your measurements are in between sizes we recommend sizing up
INSEAM LENGTH - We hem all of our pants to order so you can have the perfect length on all of your 1620 pants. The easiest way to measure inseam is to grab a pair of pants that fit well and lay them flat on the floor. With a measuring tape, measure the length from the crotch to the bottom of the leg/hem along the inseam of the pant. if you have been stuck buying pants with the wrong inseam we recommend measuring your actual inseam while standing up with a pair of boots on to make sure you get the coverage you want
Our hoodies, shirt jackets and tees have a generous tradesman fit and are slightly longer in length than you may be used to, preventing any unwanted exposure.
We recommend buying the same size you normally wear in other brands.
