March 12, 2019
Its a common question that we field from customers on a regular basis, How do Dickies Work Wear Pants fit? Following on from our Dickies Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook feature, we have compiled a Dickies fit guide made up of 4 of the brands key trouser silhouettes to give you a bit more of an idea as to the fit and style of each pair when worn.
Out of all the iterations of the work pant, the Dickies 803 Work Pant sees the style undergo its most drastic rework. Much more of a tailored style, the pants fit below the waist and are slim through to the seat and thighs, with a skinny straight fit on the leg. It’s crafted from a durable twill work cloth blended with 2% spandex for just the right amount of stretch. This 2-piece work pant waistband prevents them from rolling and the distinctive tunnel belt loops allow for extra belt support. The 803 would work well for a smarter look by adding in abutton down shirtor even worn casually with a simple t-shirt.
The Dickies Slim Fit 872 Work Pant gives a modern update to Dickies famous work pant silhouette, a style that has spearheaded the brands dominance in the workwear market. Constructed from a polyester and cotton mix, the 8.5 oz twill work pants are equally as durable as the original, but offers a slightly more tailored fit. They look great tucked in with a plain white t-shirt and rolled up over a pair of hi-top Converse all-stars.
Again reworking the classic 874 silhouette, the Dickies 873 Work Pant is slightly slimmer but features the same fabric mix of polyester and cotton. The straighter fit means the style can be worn slightly smarter than the 874. As with many Dickies styles, the 873 is a no-nonsense design , constructed with durability in mind and features minimal branding with only a small Dickies tab on the back pocket.
The classic 874 is the original work pant fit that has continued to play a prominent part in the brands ever expanding range. Dickies rich heritage in producing heavy duty menswear means that the Dickies 874 is one of the best work pants styles on the market. Adopted by the skate community for their loose fit, the 874 is the perfect style for those that are looking for a casual, retro inspired look.
