Dickies - A Rundown of the Workwear Giant
Founded in 1922, Dickies is a workwear brand that believes in high-quality, hard-wearing products, and has come to be known throughout the industry for providing reliable and timeless staple items.
Although originally established as a through-and-through workwear brand, Dickies has evolved by picking up a fan base throughout subcultures like skateboarding, which appreciated their minimal, and hard-wearing clothing, especially the 874 work pants.
The 874’s can be utilised for any purpose, from the workshop, the skatepark, and the streets, a total all-purpose classic.
Crafted from a polyester & cotton composition, the 874 Pant are hard-wearing, durable, wrinkle resistant and stain releasing, which makes them extremely low maintenance and always good to go.
Coming in a vast array of colour and fit variations, the Dickies Work Pant can fill in the gap for any kind of day.
The Dickies Funkley Shirt in Military Green is a long-sleeve button down shirt that is crafted from a hardwearing, yet comfortable 100% herringbone cotton.
This workwear staple features three patch front pockets, one inside pocket and a hidden snap cuff closure for keeping all of your essentials safe.
Over the years, Dickies has found itself deeply involved with subcultures across the board, just like other heritage brands like Levis and Fred Perry.
When a solid, versatile and reliable product is being made, it can’t help but spread far and wide and be appreciated by all.
Music has been in the Dickies blood since their small beginnings in 1922. The Dickies co-founder EE “Colonel” Dickie loved music, as seen in the photo above where you can see the Colonel in front of Dickies’ first factory in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Dickies Duck Canvas Deck Jacket in Brown is a timeless piece that could be seen outside of a factory or within the 90s hip hop scene.
Featuring a warm shearling lining, button placket, and fit with essential workwear features including hard wearing duck canvas, multiple pockets and all finished off with the signature Dickies horseshoe branding at the chest.
Finishing off with a wardrobe staple, Dickies comes through with their signature hardwearing reliability and creates a stylised daily essential.
In the words of the brand itself “Even though we’re all apart, we’re making and shaping the future together with action, work and artistic expression. We believe in a community brought together by one common language: inspiration. The new world United by Inspiration is truly - Yours to Make.”
