I’ve always had a soft spot for high quality workwear. It’s not always easy to find gear that is functional and fits well while also offering a bit of style. That’s where Indiana-based Berne Apparel comes in. The company offers workwear that customers love, and the kicker is that they make products with sizes to 4X, 5X, 6X and 68 waist. We put together a quick list of products from Berne that you need in your closet. Plus, get 30% off + free shipping on whatever you order.
This roomy and comfortable hooded shirt jacket is perfect for cooler fall days, with sizes to 4X. The quilted taffeta insulation will keep you warm while the 8oz 100% cotton duck protects against the elements. I’m partial to the layered hoodie look this jacket offers when unzipped. It’s a built-in piece, but it adds a little something to the whole thing. Get one for yourself $53.99.
It is surprisingly difficult to find a big & tall t-shirt that fits well. Most are too big, too tight, not long enough in the torso or have sleeves that are too long. I started wearing Berne’s Heavyweight Pocket Tee (sizes to 4X) at the beginning of the year and it quickly became the best tee in my collection. It’s thicker than your average t-shirt, and it feels like it’s made to last. Most of my t-shirts act as undershirts. This is one I wear out on its own. Get one for yourself for $14.99.
This is the jacket you wear when you want to look good while staying warm and dry. It’s water repellent, oil repellent, and well-insulated. The Torque Ripstop Hooded Jacket is made to support movement, with pleated elbows and an action back, meaning it’ll move with you. You know how some jackets don’t offer coverage when you’re bending and moving around? This one has an extended back that helps ensure you won’t have that problem. Get one for $78.99 in navy or slate.
Most workwear brands don’t make jeans in modern fits. Berne’s Flex180 Stretch Quarry Jean offers a contemporary look with durable 12oz stretch denim for comfort and range of motion. I’m wearing a pair in the photos you see above. Put these bad boys on when you’re just hanging out or you want to get stuff done. Get yourself a pair with sizes to 50 waist for $53.99.
Every guy needs a few good pairs of pants in their wardrobe. The Flex180 Ripstop Pant gives you the modern look with all the stretch found in the jeans. These water and oil repellent pants offer a relaxed fit, and man do they look good. Plus, they are available to size 68 waist. See them in action in the video above, then get your own for $44.99.
I’m a big fan of modern sweatshirts like the Performance Full-Zip Crew you see here. They’re lightweight, water-repellent, and stretchy, which should be a prerequisite for most extended size clothing. All that aside, I just like the look. Get it with sizes to 6XL in navy and grey for $44.99.
