With its new four-piece capsule collection, Dickies proves that there’s nothing quite as brilliant as resurrecting a fashion classic completely intact from the day it was conceived and doing so with a killer photographic exhibition of musicians including Hisham Bharoocha, Iyadede, Paul Major, Robert A.A. Lowe and Dylan Brenner wearing the item. Crafted with near maddening attention to historical detail, Dickies 1922’s limited edition uniform shirt in long or short sleeves and uniform pant, hemmed or cuffed, were originally produced on request by the Quartermaster Depot in Philadephia. Not only are the replicas produced today in one of the company’s oldest, operating facilities in Uvalde, Texas, but they too are cut from the official narrow loom, selvage 8.2 Twill Type I Cramerton Army Cloth, developed and made of high-count two-ply yarn, then dyed with the fastest dyes and sanforized. The shirt has a single-stitched collar, double-needle seams, inverted pleat chest pockets with shell buttons and narrow gauge felled seams. Meanwhile, the pant, with its tailored waistband, wide tunnel belt loops and full cut, features a modern five-button fly, watch pocket and pressed open seams throughout. Other details include stitched down back darts and back welted pockets with a left button and selvedge facings. Both items, available in khaki or suntan and branded with Dickies’ original gray, red and yellow logo, will be sold at select retailers including Unionmade in San Francisco, the Stronghold in Venice, California and Luther’s in Austin, Texas as of July 15.
