HISTORY

Established in 1922 in Fort Worth, Texas, a city and state known for its grit, Dickies has always been known for its no-nonsense approach to functional workwear. The story of the legendary brand begins in 1918, when founding business partners C.N. Williamson and E.E. “Colonel” Dickie began a vehicle and harness business, creating rough and tumble equipment for horses. By 1922, the two shifted from outfitting workhorses to outfitting workers. They began making tough denim bib overalls for ranchers, farmhands and other workers around the Southwest.

Since then, Dickies has spent nearly a century crafting innovative workwear known for its performance, durability and comfort. To this day, Dickies continues its long legacy of designing quality workwear at a price anyone can afford. What began as a humble denim bib overall company has grown into a worldwide force, weaving together cultural movements with a rigorous commitment to straightforward style and long lasting ingenuity.

In 2017, Dickies was acquired by VF Corp, the parent company of global powerhouse brands such as Vans®, The North Face®, Timberland®, Wrangler® and Lee®. VF is the ideal steward to honor the Dickies heritage while providing a platform for growth that ensures continued success for another century.
