Dickies History

Legendary Workwear since 1922

Workwear bearing the distinctive Dickies® logo is worn by workers from almost every industry and in many of the world’s harshest working environments. From agriculture to the oil industry, Dickies® workwear is renowned for its performance, comfort and durability.
The qualities that have made Dickies® a worldwide brand are superbly highlighted in the Dickies® Deluxe Workwear range: coveralls, work pants and jackets that offer function and performance in classic styles. Not surprisingly these garments have proved to be among Dickies® most popular lines, selling in hundreds of thousands each year.

The Early Years

The company has its roots in the small town of Bryan in Texas, where C. N. Williamson and E. E. “Colonel” Dickie began their careers in the “vehicle and harness” business. In 1918 they made what turned out to be a momentous decision when, with a few friends, they established the U.S. Overall Company. Four years later the company was renamed the Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company. From these modest beginnings Dickies® has transformed itself into the largest workwear manufacturer in the world.

Having gained a reputation for making hardwearing garments, during World War II the company was sequestered by the American Government to produce millions of uniforms for the armed services.
After successfully completing its war service, Williamson-Dickie experienced further growth. In the late 1950’s the company expanded into the European market and the Middle East, where Texan oilmen introduced Dickies® workwear to Middle Eastern oil fields. Then in 1989 ® (UK) was formed, bringing tough, durable and affordable workwear to the British worker. From its base in Somerset, the brand has continued to develop its range and markets to achieve its current status as the leading workwear manufacturer in the UK.
