10E2566: 1620 Workwear
Longtime neighbor and supporter of 10e, Josh Walker (formerly of BERN Helmets) has started a new endeavor; 1620. For those readers not from New England or perhaps unfamiliar with US primary school history that is a reference to the date of the pilgrims arrival at Plymouth, Massachusetts.
I have noted before, we are massively lucky to live in the north east. I tell the interns all the time (and appreciate it myself too) - it is amazing to live in New England and experience on a day to day basis the sites and monuments and stories that other kids in America only read about. We live steps from the path of Paul Revere's ride, Walden Pond, and the birthplace of Concord grapes... Plymouth - as in ROCK - is a short drive away. So much history. Fantastic. Just words on a page to others - but daily life for yankees (small y... #evilempire). Anyhow - Josh and co are flipping the script on outsourcing and tapping the still-standing Massachusetts mills to create a line of 100% made in USA shirts, jacs, shorts, double-knees and lets see what else...

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.
