Best shorts ever

The khaki shorts are the fifth pair that I have purchased. I have never found a pair of shorts that could compete with these. If you are in the trades and your employer allows shorts then get these. If you just cut grass and drink beer on the weekends here’s your shorts. Want to go out to dinner with the family here you go. They look great last forever and are extremely well laid out. There is not a pocket on these that doesn’t belong. Particularly if you are right handed. The length is about one inch longer than what I was accustomed but that took about two wearings to acclimate. I never realized how fatiguing ill fitting clothes could be until I started wearing 1620 pants and shorts. They are not baggy but they fit snug where needed and roomy everywhere else. American made just seals the deal for me.
I only wish that I saw your products being worn in Georgia. I’m certain this is a target rich environment for your marketing efforts. I’m doing my part. Keep up the great work.

Utility shorts

Being a journeyman carpenter these are the perfect shorts and I will be purchasing more in the future


The quality is hard to beat, I will continue to purchase from 1620. I wish my work place would use them as one of our suppliers of work wear.


Best shorts I’ve ever bought, well worth the money and I like that it’s made in the USA! As a Union member I like to support other Unions or at least American made products.

Great customer service

I wrote a less than perfect review of my 1620 utility short for being heavy and hot for shorts and for material fraying in the crotch after about a dozen washes and stitches beginning to come loose in the same area. the following day I recited an email from the company offering to repair them along with a shipping label. I didn't contact them, they apparently stay on top of their reviews and make good on failures proactively. This has greatly improved my impression of their products and set a very high standard of customer service.

Heavy-Duty Cordura Fabric Utility Short

Our stretch NYCO cordura utility shorts are tough as nails! The BDU-inspired military spec shank bottom, hammer loop, extra-large pockets, and modern fit make this pair of work shorts unlike any others. Your work shorts should be as good as your other tools, and work just as hard - and these made in the USA utility shorts can do the job!
