One hundred years ago, C.N Williamson and E.E. Dickie decided to open the first dungaree store, “The U.S. Overall Company,” in Texas, which later became the “Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company.”
Shortly after its inception, the company created the pant that is destined to be worn to this day, the “Dickies 874,” made of polycotton with no pockets or pleats, and the permanent crease-a revolution that would become a fundamental must-have for workwear and streetwear as we know it today.
Since 1922, Dickies has witnessed an inexhaustible succession of fashions and trends, which have not in the slightest undermined its classic and timeless style; on the contrary, it has reinforced its recognizability.
The raw materials used then, the sturdiness of the fabrics and stitching-proof of metalworkers working even 14 hours a day-have contributed to the reputation of a long-lasting, high-quality and fashionable brand.
After this brief journey through the history of Dickies, it’s time to introduce the Dickies FW22 New Collection Fall/Winter 2022, designed to be unisex, for all sizes and body shapes, building on the classic, boxy silhouettes associated with the Texas brand both since 1922.
From vitamin colors such as green, orange; to neutrals such as beige, gray; to basics such as white and black; the new collection creates minimal styles that can be mixed and matched with each other, throughout the season.
Classic designs that have been part of Dickies‘ archive since the 1920s have been reworked with contemporary, technical materials; the effect is of silhouettes that look like they were designed today and instead belong to the workwear tradition.
Highlights of the latest collection include the new varsity jacket, long-sleeved bowling shirts, and baggy denim.
New workwear styles, such as pleated pants, made from organic and sustainable fibers, have been included.
Completing the collection is the Dickies Skateboarding series, which returns with a melange of durable, skate-ready garments.
