Based on the Original 874 work pant, the Detroit 874 is made of the trademark Dickies dark navy 65/35 twill. Keeping the classic tunnel belt loops and signature permanent leg crease, Dickies added red contrast stitching, pocketing and logos, to make this limited edition pant special. (Only 5000 pair were made) Most importantly, the Detroit 874 is hand made right here in the U.S.A.
Launched last September with partnership from the Detroit Salvation Army, the Dickies Detroit 874 was designed to take on unemployment in the Metro Detroit area. For every Detroit 874 that is purchased, Dickies has pledged to donate a pair of the Original 874 to assist a Detroit worker in need. Dickies has also pledged $25,000 to help combat the economic crisis that has hit the Motor City.
“Dickies and Detroit have some inherent similarities. Both have the hallmarks of a classic American work ethic; both persevere no matter what obstacles arise; and both have an undeniable authenticity steeped in pride and independence,” said Tad Uchtman, Sr. VP Marketing for Dickies. I could not agree more with Mr. Uchtman and urge you to head over to Dickies and pick up a pair of the Detroit 874. By doing so, you will no only support workers in need, but also the spirit and beliefs that this great country was built on.
