Clothing That Works: 1620 Workwear Beats Carhartt at Its Own Game, Again
March 23, 2018 | By Tanner Bowden
Founded in 2016, 1620 Workwear is a still a young brand, but it was quick to impress with its line of super-durable, USA-made clothing and now it’s updated one of its foundational pieces: the Double Knee Pant. The double knee is a workwear staple, providing protection and abrasion resistance for the most tear-prone part of a pant.
1620 built the first iteration of the Double Knee with Cordura stretch nylon fabric, which was originally developed exclusively for US Special Forces. The material returns to the Double Knee 2.0, along with a gusseted crotch, articulated knees and plenty of tool pockets. New to the pant is an improved, streamlined fit inspired by technical outdoor products and designed to make the Double Knee even more capable than it already was.

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.
