Yes, you read that right, Dickies is serving up fashion, and in on-trend color and styles. Their new spring lines are as durable as their heritage gear, but with a little bit of extra flair.

Another of the new items from Dickies spring line is their new chore jacket. It’s part of their Clean Utility Collection, their new work-inspired collection.

Gotta love a hoodie, especially when it’s cut slightly oversized and has large kangaroo pockets. Dickies new graphic print hoodie has a soft fleece inside and is made in a durable cotton blend. This hoodie has ribbed cuffs and waist, has the brand emblazoned on the chest, and small brand patch on the top of the pocket.
One of Dickies best sellers are their 874 pants. The cleanly cut chino-styled work pant can deal with building a house, heavy lifting or walking around town. No matter what happens in them, they look good. For Spring, these cotton-blend pants have Dickies Temp IQ cooling tech.
