Fueled by in-depth customer insights drawn from active auto workers and specialty built for today’s automotive workforce, the Dickies Shop Collection features new innovations while maintaining the advanced level of quality, durability and comfort that working professionals have come to appreciate from Dickies.
The Dickies Shop Collection features a wide variety of products for men and women including, shirts, knits, pants, shorts, denim, coveralls and jackets; and accessories such as safety footwear and non-scratch belts. With added functional details and optimized comfort to allow workers to maintain focus on getting the job done, the new Dickies Shop Collection’s advanced features include:

- Cooling mesh technology built into shirts, providing superior ventilation and optimized airflow to keep wearers cool in hot conditions.
- Lightweight, breathable flex fabrics that move with, not against, the worker.
- Moisture-wicking fabric co-developed with Milliken & Company, a leading textile innovation manufacturer, which rapidly dries the material, keeping the wearer both cool and comfortable.
- Team wear collections, available in men’s and women’s styles, allow an entire shop team to be professionally outfitted.
“The Dickies Shop Collection is specialty designed and constructed workwear to meet the unique needs of the automotive worker” explains Brian Sheedy, vice president of merchandising and design, Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. “We initiated and completed several rounds of automotive field wear-testing and research to ensure we built the Shop Collection with true purpose. The final positive research results have been incredibly motivating, further empowering our design team to continuously raise the bar in the design and de velopment of our products.”
