Dickies

Dickies is an American company that manufactures work-related clothing and accessories, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas by C.N. Williamson and E.E. Colonel Dickie.Dickies has made limited headway into the streetwear market with its CONSTRUCT fashion line, as well as collaborations with Stussy, VAINL ARCHIVE, and Ships Jet Blue. The brand also sponsors its own skate team and produces skatewear under its Dickies Skate label. C.N. Williamson and E.E. “Colonel” Dickie began their careers in the vehicle and harness business, but founded the U.S. Overall Company in 1918. By 1922, C. Don Williamson joined with his father and bought 100% of the overall company and renamed it to William-Dickie Manufacturing Company. Its steady growth was fueled by manufacturing millions of uniforms for the armed forces during WWII. After the war, the company converted to civilian wear production, while embarking on a strategy of geographical expansion and establishing new manufacturing facilities throughout the U.S. By the 1950s, the company became an international company by expanding into the European market and Middle Eastern market. In 2008, the company acquired Kodiak Group Holdings Inc. and Walls in 2013.
