Mine got shipped this morning.
I check my CC account a couple times a week to watch for bad charges. I see that Dickies charged my card as ordered but then REFUNDED 95 cents the next day. I wonder what that was all about.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

My actual charge was $28.96 and I got a "Shipped" email this morning. Oddly, the initial purchase showed a total of $30.24, which included Utah state sales tax.

ironically, Dickies are big with the lesbian crowd. Thought i'd throw that out there.

I buy their socks.

This is normally priced at $90. Clearance price on their website is $27, free shipping. Imported but supposedly not from China. Dickies is an old reputable brand found in many farm stores. It has odd looking cuffs, though.

Nice looking coat by Dickies. They make quality coats and jackets. It might be my next pick when next I want to shop.

There used to be a Dickies and a Walls factory
outlet store not far from here where you could
pick up irregulars and uh-ohs for nearly nothing.
I still have a couple of barn/chore coats ( or
whatever they're called this week) that were less
than 10 dollars apiece, and a uniform type jacket
with a XXXXXL label sewn in ( damn who wears
one of those?) bought 2 of those for 5 dollars each.
Used to go buy insulated coveralls every year
from Walls at their outlet. Not quite as cheap,
but way less than the top shelf retail items.
Sometimes needed about 5 minutes worth of
sewing at home, but big woop. Save 30-40 dollars

Walls is owned by Dickies which is turn is owned by the VF Corp. VF owns a bunch of familiar stuff like Jansport and Northface among others.
Lets face it. Buying straight American is almost impossible these days. It's all owned by these multi-national mega-conglomerates. As soon as a quality small company makes good money, some mega-company will buy them out. Even America's rodeo and western brand, Wranglers, is now owned by an international company.

Have a Carhart insulated vest and a HD hoodie the mopwringer got me years ago. They're both warm and sturdy. Too sturdy.

They are THE most uncomfortable things I've ever tried to wear outdoors. Collar on the vest is like wearing a Conibear around your neck. Can't move my head/neck while plowing snow, with that damn jacket on. Too fookin' stiff. Tempted to take it down to my buddy's and running it through his corn drier, to see if it loosens up. But it'd probably catch afire and ruin hundreds of bushels of corn?

By comparison, borrowed a guy's baby schit brown Dickies insulated hoodie and it was no problem at all to move in comfortably. And less expensive. Got my son a set of Dickies insulated bibs when he worked in construction about ten years ago. Warmer than my camo insulated bibs and he still uses them. They're black, so the Urban League would approve.

No longer get too worked up over "boycotts". Don't buy Leatherman stuff, shop at Dick's, or spend money at the more obvious Libturd retailers. Never owned a pair of Levis. Buy Lee jeans at a local outlet and have for decades.

Here's a phrase RC might endorse as the proper response, if he was just a tad friskier? GFY.

We had a forklift driver at my old job that bought one of those stiff Carhart jackets. It was hilarious when he would sit down on the forklift, the jacket was so stiff that it would ride up to the top of his ears. lol

Wolverine, the boot company, claims that their boots are US made. They also have a line of outdoor clothing but I think it's all imported. I have a coat that's 8 or 10 years old and still has some years of wear left in it. Chinese of course. Its very similar to Carhartt and is about as stiff. It's has quite a few holes and my latest trick was wearing it while changing oil on my diesel pickup. As I pulled the plug, a gust of wind caught the oil and splattered it all over me. The coat is pretty black on 1 shoulder and it likely will never wear off.

Wrangler/Lee were a part of VF until very recently.
My Walls stuff is old[very], guessing it's from when Walls was Walls...I hope.

tube,

Throw your vest in the dryer, on cold fluff.
Let it churn for the max time.
That should soften things up.

If you were a Westerner,
you would wear it in
from the inside!😉

My account is still showing 29.30 charged, 29.30 credit. Maybe theyll charge me in a few days. Who knows?

And FedEx updated to Wednesday now.

Buying any kind of work or hunting boots that aren't made in China or Vietnam, is nigh impossible. Wore Carolina and Georgia work boots for years, they went ChiCom long ago. Bought a pair of Rocky 800 gram boots at least 20 years ago. China.

Have a pair of Wolverine pigskin light weight waterproof 200 gram boots, that got to be at least 30 years old? Vibrams are barely but a memory for depth. But the uppers are like new. US made. Every pair of Wolverines I've bought in the past 20 years, made in China. But they're all comfy and lasting well.

Boots made in the USA:
Nick’s Boots
West Coast Boots (WESCO)
White’s Boots
Russell Boots (great hunting boots with moccasin toes)
Hoffman Boots (most are made in the USA but not all)

None of these are cheap but they last forever and can be rebuilt because they are sewn and not glued together.

Maybe 45 or 50 years ago the EPA outlawed the glue used in glue-on soles. It was one of their early regulations after they were created in 1970. There was nothing else that worked so all glue-on boots went offshore. With 1 mindless regulation, the EPA killed the entire US shoe making industry. A rep from Danner told me this. I don't know if anyone has invented a decent glue since then. I sure don't see many US made shoes in the stores.

Back to Dickies. I ordered the coat Saturday. Since then I've had at least a dozen spam emails from them. As soon as the coat arrives I'm blocking their number. They aren't making any friends with their spam.
