Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. is a company that makes clothes, mostly for the Dickies brand. The company was started in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1922 by C. N. Williamson and E. E. “Colonel” Dickie. They started a denim bib overall company that sold work clothes to farmers and ranchers in the Southwest. Today, Dickies is a well-known brand that sells work clothes to people in the automotive, hospitality, construction, and medical industries. They make, design, and sell their clothes in more than 100 countries.
Williamson-Dickie grew at a steady rate from the start. Only the Great Depression slowed the company down. During World War II, the company made millions of uniforms for the country’s armed forces. After the war, C. Don Williamson started a strategy of expanding across the country. He built new factories, warehouses, and sales territories in different parts of the country. With its European and Middle Eastern expansion in the late 1950s, Williamson-Dickie became an international company. Texas oilmen brought Dickies to Middle Eastern fields, where they became known as “Texas Dickies.” Dickies started as a modest bib overall manufacturer in Texas a century ago. Each pair of clothes that left their business was a testament to the American worker’s hard ethic, resilience, and quiet pride. When the rest of the world saw what Dickies was doing, they wanted in on the action as well.
Today, there are Dickies stores in all 50 states of the United States and around the world in countries like Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Australia. Dickies is also sold in countries like Japan and Taiwan and COH Sales Ltd. stores in Ireland, Croatia, the Philippines, Poland, and Mexico.
