You can't mention workwear and not mention Dickies. The brand's 874 pants and Eisenhower jacket are essentially lifetime staples in our wardrobe.

It's loved by skaters, rappers, construction workers, fashion designers, and pop stars. Dickies is an American treasure — a historic brand with a longstanding relationship with both blue-collar workers and streetwear communities. It's workwear built for work, clothing designed to handle even the most rugged of jobs. Dickies staples like the iconic 874 work pants or quintessential Eisenhower jacket wear like iron without wrinkling, rarely stained, torn, or faded. Dickies’ minimalistic designs are equally part of the brand's widespread appeal, acting as a canvas for designers, artists, and corporations. It's why you'll find the brand on the factory floor, on the fashion runway, and in our closets.

Dickies was started in 1922 by C.N. Williamson and E.E. "Colonel" Dickie in Bryan, Texas. The company started as a bib overall company before evolving into one of the largest workwear manufacturers in the world. Throughout the decades, working professionals and day laborers would flock to the brand because of its "indestructible" fabric blend, uniform design, and broad color palette. The Dickies that you know today started to take form in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The brand became the unofficial official uniform for SoCal skaters on the hunt for durable cheap clothing while also appearing in Latinx neighborhoods and on the backs of underground rappers.

Today the brand is a workwear mainstay across subcultures and the fashion-conscious. Dickies has collaborated with the likes of Opening Ceremony, Comme Des Garcon, Madewell, Junya Watanabe, and our own Highsnobiety team on a series of must-have collections.
