This Year’s Throwback
Dickies’ 1922 line sees the light of day today with a handsome pair of pants and a pretty good shirt built as exact replicas of the two items they started off with 88 years ago. You can see the replicated details here, but it boils down to pleated pockets, heavy-duty belt loops and a remarkably elaborate button-fly.
Sure, Dickies is coming a little late to the archival party, but we’re never sad to see a sturdier breed of khaki. The rough-handed fabrics that steered us away from Dickies’ before are still in evidence, but they’re rough for a reason: They’re indestructible. Anyone interested in work-ready khakis should add these to the wishlist.
