Dickies, Must Have Layering Options
Dickies | About The Brand
Autumn is here and finally we can start to think about layering options for the seasons ahead. The colder weather is really where heritage brands come into their own so you’ll be happy to hear we just got some very special new arrivals from one of the OG’s from across the pond – Dickies. Duck canvas work jackets, sherpa-lined flannel shirts and their iconic beanies – there’s a lot to get excited about this season at Stuarts London. Let us take you through some of the fantastic items we have available.
Coats are great, but their expensive and heavy – staying true to their roots of functionality Dickies stick to some tried a and tested classics that are durable and reliable first while also being lightweight and functional. A great example of this is in the Duck Canvas Chore Coat. A workwear staple at this point and instantly recognisable by its 4 external patch pockets originally designed for keeping tools and other items in while working. It’s only right then, that one of the original American workwear heritage brands made their own. Crafted from extra-durable duck-cotton canvas which starts out stiff at first but softens with use for a jacket that is tailored to you. A truly timeless design with a washed cord collar, metal buttons and sherpa lining mean it’s ready for any weather and will make this jacket trusty ally this season.
The Eisenhower Jacket’s origins date back to the Second World War, where a version of it was used for the uniform of American pilots. President Eisenhower, upon seeing the uniforms liked them so much that he decided to expand the uniform to other American soldiers a thus where it got its name. The jacket went on to become a blue collar-working standard up has since grown into a staple for men up and down the country. The jacket has a simple, effective design with details like a heavy-duty brass zipper, generous fit and cool original features like a pencil pocket on the left arm. This version comes fully lined for winter-ready jacket that is lightweight, durable and is all about understated cool.
The Sherpa Lined Sacramento Shirt
Dickies give their take on another American classic – the flannel shirt. With its origins again coming from the everyday hard-working American, worn by loggers, lumberjacks and outdoorsmen it was later adopted by grunge bands of the 90s and after that by rock & roll stars. This one by Dickies goes back to the garment’s origins as workwear – in fact it is still worn today for that very purpose. Warm and comfortable with its sherpa lining and soft cotton exterior it works as an excellent piece to throw on over a t-shirt or shirt for extra warmth without the bulk. Simple press-stud buttons and two large chest pockets – this regular fit shirt is available in two colours.
Sherpa Lined Duck Vest
Another Dickies icon, the Sherpa Lined Duck Vest is a workwear essential you won’t want to be without this season. It’s duck canvas exterior is renowned for being extra durable and ready for anything you can throw at it, while the oversize pockets on the front with metal tack reinforced seams are a nod to Dickies’ workwear heritage. The soft and stretchy collar will keep you warm and priorities comfort along with its sherpa lining.
A lot has been written about Dickies trousers and their enduring popularity and for good reason. Their cotton-poly blend, while being extremely durable, are really comfortable too. Smart enough to dress up if need be, but also casual enough to wear with pretty much whatever takes your fancy, if you’re ever unsure what to wear on your bottom half – any of the Dickies lineup will always solid option.
