INTRODUCING: DICKIES CONSTRUCT October 27 2015
Introducing Dickies Construct, a new line from Dickies that blends their iconic workwear with a modern, slimmer fit and rich seasonal colors. Dickies is a company that has always adapted to the times, from their beginnings as an overall manufacturer to the early 90s when punks and skaters co-opted the brand. This willingness to change and evolve is what has kept Dickies around for close to 100 years.
Many people will associate Dickies with the hard-working, salt of the earth mechanic or truck driver, not the younger, more fashion conscious image that the Construct line brings with it. The slim silhouettes and clean lines of Dickies Construct don’t replace the durability of the original, but complement it. Much of the Construct line is made from the same technical fabrics as their workwear.
Several of the pieces in the Dickies Construct collection are made from patterns found in the Dickies archive room. The Quilted Overshirt is a design from the 1940s. Minus the quilting, this exact shirt was being manufactured during the Second World War. Shirts during this time generally fit much baggier than the shirts of today. Dickies designed this overshirt to create a more tailored look while still leaving room to comfortably wear a shirt underneath.
Dickies Construct is now in stock at Service, in the shop and online.
