Shopping from the present: Dickies 1922 Work Shirts

Workshirt excellence

You might have seen our review of the Dickies 1922 trousers, and we’re happy to have gotten a few of the Dickies 1922 shirts to review. Like the trousers, these shirts are beautifully detailed and made from excellent fabrics. The fit is more approachable than the original trousers, too – high armholes and a regular body make for a comfortable shirt that’s not too baggy.

The coming-soon painter’s white shirt is much lighter than the heavy Cramerton twill used in the original shirts and trousers – a nice option for summer months.
The Cramerton twill shirts are currently available in a rigid finish (left), but will soon be offered in a rinsed finish, too (right).
Suggested trouser pairing.


Meticulous detailing and impeccable construction.
Now I’m still hoping to review the upcoming Dickies 1922 Slim Straight trouser – hopefully it’ll be the answer to my prayers for a simple, bombproof, slim-fitting pair of chinos made in the USA. Fingers crossed! Until then, I’ll be wearing these rugged shirts through the cool Oregon summer.
