Top 5 1620 Workwear Products You Need on Construction Sites


According to 1620 Workwear, a clothing manufacturer founded by Ted De Innocentis and Josh Walker in 2016, blue collar employees—including construction workers—purchase roughly five to eight pairs of pants annually, as they typically only last for a year, at most. And each pair costs $49, on average. 

That no longer has to be the case though, as 1620 Workwear’s pants, along with their other products, are built to last for several months. In fact, the manufacturer’s pants alone are up to 10 times as tough as the usual cotton canvas work pants that are on the market. 

Aside from their durability, 1620 Workwear products offer a variety of other benefits too, including the following. 

Benefits of 1620 Workwear Products 

Based in Massachusetts, 1620 Workwear is renowned for its commitment to the American worker, as each of its products is created in the United States. It’s also well recognized for its dedication to quality, ensuring that all of its products are built to last—for years, rather than months.  

In fact, its products are guaranteed for life, to the point in which they’re warranted to original owners if they notice any material or workmanship defects throughout the products’ entire lifespans. Upon observing the products and ensuring that damage wasn’t caused by accidents, inadequate care, negligence or wear and tear, 1620 Workwear will either repair the damage or replace the product completely. 

In addition, the manufacturer’s products are known for providing high flexibility, which, in turn, will enhance your range of movement. And, at the same time, the products will increase your safety too, as they’re composed of materials that will protect you from injuries associated with burns, cuts, falls and slips.  

Furthermore, the manufacturer enables you to have custom embroidery, as your company’s logo can be added to some of its products. Not to mention, 1620 Workwear also offers an assortment of discontinued and repaired products, secondhand garments and products that were accidentally manufactured twice—within its Patina Collection. Finally, if you’re interested in buying a product for someone, but unsure of what to purchase, you may buy an e-card too, which is valued at $25 to $250. 

To notice each of these benefits, among others, consider purchasing the following five 1620 Workwear products.
