It’s surprising how many fashion items, especially jackets, started out as workwear. They’ve been picked up by youth cultures and made their own, perhaps with their original functions in mind, but mainly because they just look great. Given enough time, those same items can go mainstream, and sometimes even become quite formal.

Count their close cousins boilersuits, dungarees and jumpsuits and you’ve got a whole family of wearable staples that can trace their lineage directly back to some real tough workplaces. Fashion overalls are more refined than their professional equivalents, and worn properly, they’re great for casual wear, maybe even getting a little active.
Dickies have been the fashion choice of America’s blue-collar workforce since 1922, but in the last 30 years, our range has stepped out of its comfort zone to become a frontrunner in skate and streetwear style.

At the age of 29 he’s achieved most of skateboarding’s highest regarded milestones: several celebrated video parts, pro boards on Isle Skateboards, a pro shoe on New Balance and recently featured on the cover of Thrasher Magazine, a publication known within the scene as the skate bible.
Over the years some wearers have sought savvy ways to customise their favourite pair of Dickies and make them their own, especially the women among us. With this in mind, it seems only right that we’d channel our efforts to create a dedicated women’s workwear collection, and tailor it to meet their needs and desires.
