The Dickies Brand Story
A giant of American workwear, Dickies is a no-nonsense brand that makes clothes truly for wearing. It just so happens that many of these products are street-friendly designs that slot easily into any wardrobe – and that’s the Dickies stuff that we bring in here at Urban Industry.
Established in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1922, the Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company became famous for its robust bib overalls (i.e. dungarees), designed originally for toiling in the Texan oil fields.
The product range soon expanded, and the quality ensured the brand’s survival through the Great Depression. Then during World War II, the company answered the call of duty and began manufacturing for the military, before returning to workwear immediately after.
From then on, the brand grew bigger and stronger with each passing decade, bringing in new designs according to the fashion trends of the day, while retaining the classics and staying affordable. The slogan “We’re Basic” said it all, really, and that’s why the brand was a globally recognised name by the 1980s.
We’ve stocked Dickies Work Pants here since the early 2000s, starting with the classic 874 (straight fit) and then expanding the range when the narrower variations came out: first the 873 (slim fit) and then the decidedly skinny 872 and 803. You can read our Dickies Work Pants fit guide right here.
Whatever your personal preference on the fit front, you know that your Work Pants are going to look on-point with whatever shoes you choose: Converse Chucks, any pair of Vans, Wallabees, etc. They’re everyday trousers that you can count on – and genuinely hard-wearing too. We all need a few pairs of those.
Classic khaki? Navy? Black? Charcoal? Or something more unusual, like dark brown or olive green? We give you plenty of choice. There are alternative options as well, such as the Urban Utility Cargo Pant and the Fort Polk Pant.
As well as trousers, we stock a wide selection of other Dickies products: their unbeatable T-shirts (in handy 3-packs), chore jackets, thick overshirts and flannel shirts, hoodies, sweats and even chino-style Work Shorts for summer.
