The Dickies 1922 Line: Your Favorite Workwear Essentials

dickies 1922 line workwear essentials feat
You might think you know the Dickies brand, but think again. Known for its classic workwear and a long heritage of outfitting real-life crafters, the brand’s 1922 line distills that history into a collection of style-forward essentials that are easily wearable for any guy  — that goes for city slickers and outdoor adventurers alike.

Dickies 1922

Sold at fine retailers across the country like Fort Worth Barber Shop and Port of Northampton in Massachusetts, as  well as the brand’s Web site,  it’s a collection filled with unexpected pieces that pay homage to decades gone by while also fitting right in with today’s menswear climate. The collection encompasses pieces like a 30s-era chambray shirt and a rough-and-tumble Truck Driver Jacket that calls to mind pieces produced by the company in the 1950s, yet these are styles that could seamlessly work with any of your favorite menswear staples.

Make no mistake– despite the vintage style details, these pieces are far from costume territory. For starters, the Dickies 1922 Japanese Flannel could be worn during a business casual office day, what with a tailored fit and soft fabric — style it with a waxed trucker jacket and rugged leather boots on the weekends, too.

If you prefer to stick with more rugged basics for hard-wearing outdoor adventures, the 1922 line has you set there, too. Made from rugged 9oz. Duck canvas in the brand’s classic golden brown color, the Heritage Rugged Duck Shirt is a standout layering piece whether you team it with your favorite marled henley or something a bit sharper (like a classic blue Oxford). The great layering potential doesn’t stop there — if a sturdy selvedge denim jacket is what you seek, the Cone Denim Mills White Oak Selvedge Denim Coat is a surefire winner and the perfect example of a brand blending its past with its present.

While there’s something to be said for brands that push the envelope with runway silhouettes and technical fabrics, the best design often lies in the archives — and the Dickies 1922 line is a great place to start if you’re into clothing with history, character and style.

Remember those Gap 1969 sweatshirts your mom used to buy you back in middle school? Since then, the iconic American brand has maintained a steady presence in shopping malls, remaining a consistent resource for jeans, khakis and business casual fits. Gap was always a safe, middle-of-the-market clothing choice for non-fashion risk takers. Gap has never been known for cool streetwear attire -- until now.

The retailer is teaming up with Kanye West for a new clothing line called YEEZY Gap, which is expected to launch in 2021. The news went viral when West unveiled a giant hand-written note on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue store. In it, he said, “Hi Chicago, it’s Ye. This is the Gap store I used to shop at when I would drive my Nissan from the Southside, so blessed.” The unveiling dropped major hints, brewing the mystery of what was to come.
