Has Dickies always had a skate team?
Seems they've realized their popularity.

i think dickies has sponsored skaters at various times before.  Carhartt also has had a skate team in europe since the 90s.

makes sense. i associate dickies more with skating than omit/famous/somethingsimilartothose

and what's up with carhart? i've noticed they do a lot of advertising at european skate contests, why not in america?

i think its a whole separate entity.  probably run by different people.  carhartt europe is more fashion oriented, while carhartt america seems to be purely workwear.  i think they sponsor rodeo riders

carhartt has always been supportive for skateboarding n europe, sponsored skaters, tours and contests. they even did collabos with local skate brands and stuff.

At least Dickies are affordable and durable.  Perfect for skating.

Yeah, Carhartt europe has just licensed the name, they are not really connected to the US workwear brand. One of my favorite brands.

The only $50 Dickies I've seen are the Spitfire/AH collab ones. Average price at most places in the US is still under $30.

To the guy who said "support your local WalMart," of the dozens of pairs of Dickies I've owned over they years only 1 came from WalMart, and they fit weird, like they were the rejects. Most of the time you get Dickies from independently owned shops that specialize in blue collar work clothes and from army surplus stores. Insinuating that Dickies is a WalMart brand is as incorrect as saying that Shaun White clothing is a legitate skate brand.

Skaters have been backing Dickies forever because they make comfortable and durable clothes so I'm glad to see them putting some money into our industry.
