For most people winter is a bleak season filled with bare trees, frost, cold toes and mornings where you have to drag yourself from the warm depths of your bed. For us here at Dickies, winter is a favourite because it means, not only a change in seasons, but a change of style. It means layering, wearing your favourite boots and of course pulling on that awesome Dickies jacket of yours.

Whether it’s wrenching on your old hot rod or hauling lumber at the jobsite, the 874 has your back when you’re working hard.
