SOPHNET. x Dickies – 10th Anniversary 874 Lowrizer

SOPHNET. (SOPH.) x Dickies - SOPHNET. 10th Anniversary 874 Lowrizer

For the 5th entry to its commemorate collection, Hirofumi Kiyonaga (清永浩文) of SOPHNET. selected another legendary brand to the spotlight Dickies.  Founded in 1918 by C.N. Williamson and E.E. “Colonel” Dickies, the company was originally a “vehicle & harness” manufacturer when the partners decided to create a separate entity, the U.S. Overall Company, in dealing with needs of then growing American blue-collar workforce.  In 1922, the company turned its focus into the overall production and renamed the company Williamson-Dickies Manufacturing Company.  From the Great Depression to World War II, Dickies outfitted millions of American in workwears and uniforms.  But it was the 1950s that really saw the label’s expansion into the international arena.  Like the gold prospectors (0r 49ers) a century passed who propagate Levi’s denim as a must have, the 50s oil workers (aka roughnecks) swore by their Dickies.

The SOPHNET. 10th Anniversary Dickies Collaboration will feature one its earliest model, the 874 Work Pant.  To the no frill design of classic fit, flat front, Kiyonaga lowered the silhouette just a bit with the inclusion of a logo etched metal accessory loop.  In addition, a stitch-on SOPH. 10 Anniversary emblem and RIRI zipper enclosure were also added.  Comes in dark gray and black, the SOPH. x Dickies – 10th Anniversary 874 Lowrizer will be available early March at all SOPHNET. stores and authorized dealers.
