Through its dedication to innovation and continual customer contact, Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. has transformed itself from a small bib overall company to the largest workwear manufacturer in the world. Dickies now offers a broad spectrum of work garments ranging from work pants and work shirts to denim jeans and women's workwear. Since its beginnings in 1922, every piece of Dickies workwear has stood for the quality, toughness, and pride that embodies the spirit of the American worker.
The Evolution of Denim Workwear: History of Denim
Like the rugged farmhands who first wore it, Dickies Denim has always represented strength and durability. From humble beginnings in 1922 as a denim bib-overall company in Fort Worth, Texas, Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company has been a staple in the workwear industry for almost a century, favored by workers who need quality, performance gear that’s as comfortable as it is durable. During World War II, the company was even commissioned to produce millions of uniforms for the armed forces. Post-war, Dickies continued expanding to meet the growing needs of its customers, like cowboys and ranch hands, by developing denim made just for them.
