Known for hard work and hard tasks, the brand is now looking to show its softer side.

With all the things a Leatherman multitool can do, repairing a tear in your clothing may be the only thing it can’t. That could change soon as the Portland everyday items maker moves into apparel.

Launched this month, Leatherman’s very first clothing line consists of three types of tops with different designs in each style. And like his tools, Leatherman makes every product in the new clothing line in the USA – and that from American cotton.

Leatherman’s clothing line consists of a short-sleeved t-shirt, a long-sleeved t-shirt and (our favorite) a heavy hoodie. We have each received a sample and can confirm that the shirts look and feel well made.

And while some off-the-shelf shirts from large stores are not that cheap, they are about the price you would expect from a durable American-made product. The short sleeve t-shirts are $ 35, the long-sleeve t-shirt is $ 45, and the large, heavy hoodies are $ 95.

This is due in part to the materials and manufacture. All of the cotton used in clothing comes from Texas, and the fiber is knitted, cut, and sewn in the Carolinas – with American labor.

“Every detail has been considered, from the ribbed collars and cuffs to hold their shape, to the custom cords and hardware on our hoodies,” the brand said. “All of this to ensure that you can enjoy our equipment for years to come.”

Here’s a look at that entire Leatherman clothing line.

Leatherman Pullover Hoodies – Heritage Badge & Basics: $ 95

Leatherman hoodies

Made from a heavy cotton-poly blend, this sweater has a kangaroo pocket and a pull-down hood. You can get it in Leatherman badge or Basics Designs. We have worn it and we confirm that it is a high performance piece. This is great for working under the car or in a shop where there are a lot of sharp edges. The hoodies are available in gray and black.

Leatherman Basics Long Sleeve T-Shirt: $ 45

Leatherman Basics long sleeve t-shirt

Not too hot, but not too cold Basics long sleeve t-shirt keeps you covered in a less chunky package than the hoodie. It has an embroidered logo on the cuff and is available in three colors. Both black and green are made from 100% cotton and the gray shirt is a cotton-poly blend. And of course a multitool has to be stuck in the front pocket.

The collection is rounded off by two short-sleeved T-shirts with reinforced seams and “high-strength, durable thread”. Choose from the Heritage badge (like the hoodie) and PST heritage (a nod to the iconic tool) designs. These shirts are available in black, yellow and gray.
