This Is the Last Work Hoodie You’ll Ever Need: Gear Patrol
April 10, 2019 | By Tanner Bowden
Carhartt, Wrangler and Dickies aren’t the only names in workwear anymore; in addition to companies like Patagonia that are releasing canvas pants and farrier’s shirts, a few new, small brands have popped up to address clothing that’s meant to take a beating. One of the most promising among those is 1620, and it just released its new take on a workwear staple: the hoodie.
1620’s Work Hoodie is unassuming (as workwear should be) — it’s nearly logo-less and comes in black or grey — but offers an unlikely level of customization. Building up from a basic hoodie, you can opt for a snap button collar, reinforced elbows, forearms, and front pocket, or all of these features together. Each upgrade comes with a small price increase, but opting for the plain version isn’t much of a sacrifice; it’s made with an abrasion-resistant, melt-resistant, water-repellent cotton blend fleece.
The Work Hoodie is up for pre-order now (for a 15-20 percent discounted price), but if you’re gearing up for spring fixes now, check out 1620’s pants.

WAIST MEASUREMENT - Use a measuring tape to measure around your waistline, just above the top of the hip bones. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight.
INSEAM LENGTH - 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.
Our hoodies, shirts and tees have a generous tradesman fit and are slightly longer in length than you may be used to, preventing any unwanted exposure.
