1620 Workwear Beats Carhartt at Its Own Game, Again


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.
