Durability at the service of skateboarding
Like most accessories in the DICKIES streetwear range, the 874 is basically work trousers. Light and solid, this model released in 1967 is the heir to the DICKIES know-how acquired over decades by manufacturing work trousers for farmers or for the American army.
Originally made of 65% cotton and 35% polyester, the DICKIES 874 benefits from an anti-stain finish which makes it an excellent choice for messy jobs.
Particularly resistant to withstand the constraints of the professional world, the 874 retains a classy enough cut to be worn elsewhere than at work.
Thanks to all its qualities, and its slightly loose fit, the DICKIES 874 trousers have slowly infiltrated society, not as work trousers, but as a fashion accessory.
Adopted in the 80s by the Latin American Californian Workers, it quickly caught the eye of skateboarders for its solidity against asphalt. Their straight, loose cut makes them comfortable enough for skating and elegant enough for everyday wear. It offers enough space to send tricks, and class to have a drink after the session!
Now available in different versions, including an even more comfortable Flex model, the Dickies 874 trousers are available in twenty colors, for women and men.
On our side, we totally love it. And while some prefer its cousin, the DICKIES Sherburn, for its slim fit, the DICKIES pants are our number one choice for any skateboarding session.
