Originally Dickies was a company, which mainly specialised in the production of working clothes. It was founded in 1918 by C.N. Williamson and E.E. Dickie in Texas as US Overall Company. Four years later the business was renamed as Williamson-Dickies. Today Dickies jeans and jackets made the jump from work to spare time. Primarily in the skateboarding- and streetscene Dickies is a constant component of every wardrobe.
