Brand Buzz: Dickies 1922

fob_4_28_2010.jpg

Dickies, the definitive American workwear brand, will introduce Dickies 1922, a capsule collection of authentic replica styles manufactured exactly the same as they were when first introduced almost a century ago. The limited-edition collection will consist of four pieces: the “Uniform Shirt” with long or short sleeves, and the “Uniform Pant” available hemmed or cuffed. The 1922 collection will be produced in the Dickies factory in Uvalde, Texas, one of the company’s oldest, continually operating factories. Both styles come in both khaki or suntan colors, with the shirt retailing for $175 and the pants for $200. Dickies’ historic Cramerton Army Cloth was originally developed at the request of the Army’s Quartermaster Depot in Philadelphia. Authentic details will include tunnel belt loops, a button fly and watch pocket on the pants, and inverted-pleat flap pockets with shell buttons and selvedge seams on the shirt. Both styles will bear the brand’s retired “brush mark” logo on paper tags reproduced from the archives.

To market the special heritage-driven collection, the company commissioned five photographers to shoot portraits of emerging New York musicians wearing the 1922 pieces. An accompanying party took place last night at the Hosfelt Gallery where the photos will now be on display.

Dickies 1922 collection will be available at select retailers like Unionmade in San Francisco, The Stronghold in Venice, California and Luther’s in Austin, Texas this July.
