Dickies of Fort Worth
As worn by Men of Production since 1922. One of those points where the worlds of Capitalism and Communism intersect with a celebration of the dignity of the working man not to mention an equal imposition of conformity with the provision of a uniform. Heroes of Labour and Men of Production eternally toiling in the service of the cold war. Marching with a purpose, lunch boxes at the ready. The guy who got the girl wears a troubling expression of wide eyed lasciviousness but the others possess a military bearing in keeping with their mission to defend freedom. The brand has survived into the present and the Dickies Texan Waterproof Rigger Boot is the first choice in the building trade.
