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.

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.

Overland is the king of ski towns: Celebrating 50 years of American mountain west outerwear
How did Overland win over the mountain town
Taos Storefront 2023

Every industry has its mainstay brands that only get stronger with more competition. There will always be some new and fresh idea that challenges all those before it and tries to change the industry. Then there are those brands they face, who have been around for decades, weaving in and out of competition and outlasting every challenge thrown their way. For every new and exciting watch brand, there is a Rolex standing strong. While there are plenty of explanations for why a brand outshines every other around it, Overland Sheepskin Co. has an explanation all its own. On this, their 50th year, we look back and try to understand how this family-owned business became the King of the Mountain towns and what keeps them on top.

Back in 1973, the flagship store in Taos, New Mexico, took a bale of sheepskin and a sewing machine and began creating coats, hats, and mittens for the surrounding area. As word began to spread about their quality, the whole family had to pitch in to help out to meet the growing demand. Five decades later, with 17 stores throughout the Rocky Mountains and across the country, they have become a mainstay in the mountain and ski towns for their quality and dependability. We got a chance to sit down with Monty Goodson, manager of the Santa Fe store and a buyer for the company, to find out how they did it and how they maintain the culture that has made them who they are today.
