It is very interesting that many of the world's coolest and most enduring fashions began life as workwear. Levi's 501 jeans are probably the best example of this as they were first produced in 1873 for the miners in America. Dr Martens boots were definitively workwear until Pete Townsend of the who started wearing them on stage in the 1960's and they have never really gone out of fashion since. So why is workwear so very popular as a fashion statement?
Perhaps it is because workwear is designed and manufactured to last making it a good investment. Maybe because it is because it is generally simple in style and so has a timeless appeal. Of course it also tends to be relatively inexpensive which is always good when it comes to wardrobe staples. At the end of the day, workwear is versatile and something that you can always rely on.
Dickies are the largest workwear manufacturer in the world and boast an impressive history of excellence. The company began by producing overalls back in 1922. Since then the range has been progressively expanded to feature a wide variety of clothing and footwear. Dickies produced clothing for the military in World War II which helped moved the company forward. In the 1990's the brand was establishing a cult status with young people in America, particularly the skateboarding community. It was also adopted by celebrities including Justin Timberlake and Madonna. Dickies had crossed the line into fashion and have stayed there ever since.
