As a brand that has been around since the 1920s, Dickies had grown to one of the biggest workwear clothing manufacturers in the US, and eventually the world. Dickies’ 874 work pants far exceeded the competition with a superior composition of a polyester and cotton blend. This borderline indestructible material couldn’t have been suited better to supporting a workforce in a post-war industrious USA. Later on, they became popular for daily wear as well, not just for quality workwear.

  • Although black 874s are perfectly suited to be paired with a simple white T-shirt and some trainers, they can just as easily be dressed up with a shirt and some loafers. Some colorful jackets or T-shirts will round up the look.
  • Style a pair of navy 874s trousers with an oversized grey sweater, a simple black beanie, and some high-tops for a quick and easy way to get out the door in less than a minute. Aiming for a button down denim jacket will also do the trick. 
  • Mix a pair of beige 874s work pants with a contrasting shirt for a perfect combination and stylish sunny getup. Add a pair of white leather trainers to maintain the laid-back aesthetic. You’re going to like this for any day-to-day work or ceremony look.
