Dickies is a first choice of uniforms, workwear and loungewear for millions of people. It’s no mystery why – they make high-quality clothing that’s affordable, comfortable, and durable. Dickies started out in 1923 as an overall bib company and have continued making excellent products (worth noting that overalls and bib overalls are both used depending on where you are from). Dickies services oilfield workers around the world, mechanics, farmers, and the every-day person every day. 

There are many options when buying overalls. This guide breaks down the most important features you need to pay attention to, extra features you may need depending on your job, and then reviews our best Dickies overalls for you!

Dickie’s denim overalls are a classic and an American staple. They are built to last for the working person. There’s no high-tech features with these – just comfort, durability, and Dickies’ great reliability. Even better is how affordable these are. This overall comes in widest variety of colors we know allowing you to have many options.

Along with the variety of colors, they come in either denim or 100% cotton duck. We prefer cotton duck when working although both are durable. Made for handymen, these come with 9 pockets. Holding pens, paper, phones, or any tools becomes easy with these. We’ve not seen a pair of overalls that are so versatile.

Painting is always a messy job which is why you need durable, comfortable, and cleanable overalls. Dickies Painter’s overalls one of the most unique pairs made because of their fabric. Unlike most overalls, these are made with Cotton Drill fabric. Cotton drill fabric is a diagonal pattern that’s highly durable and strong. This added protection and reinforcement will help you throughout your day and years to come. 

Another great feature we love is the amount of pockets. 8 pockets around the overall will allow you to store most tools you have. A bonus with these is the 2 hammer loops on the thighs. If you are painting or are a painter, we highly recommend you try these.

Dickies created their own insulated overalls to support workers in cold environments. There aren’t too many things that are worse at work than extreme discomfort in freezing weather. The outer shell is made from 100% cotton duck while the liner is made from polyester and nylon. The combination also makes these water repellant so you can be comfortable in any wet or cold environment. Dickies added an extra layer of protection with these – a double layer around the knee. You don’t have to worry about wear and tear anytime soon with their proprietary ScuffGard protection you.

Lastly, a favorite feature these have is the ankle-to-waist zipper. You can easily get in and out of these with this feature. 

Working in low visibility areas or at night is dangerous. Dickies Men’s Enhanced Visibility Bib Overall has 3M Scotch lite reflective material located around the clothing. Along with the Hi-Vis safety, these are made with 100% cotton denim to be comfortable and safe at work. We love the Indigo Blue these come in as it gives an extra pop to them. If you work in construction or at night, we recommend trying a pair of these. You will be feeling great all night.

➤What are dickies Overalls?

Overalls – or ‘Bib Overalls’ – were one of the first workwear in the United States. Carhartt manufactured their first pair for railroad workers in 1889. Standard overalls are made with either denim or 100% ctotn. Their distinctive qualities include a ‘bib’ or large pocket in the front, two straps covering the shoulders, and pants extending to the shoe. Manufacturers add their own unique features for comfort, durability, look, and functionality. Coveralls are similar except they cover your shoulders and arms.

➤ How do you find dickies overall size?

Wearing the correct size of coveralls is very important to be comfortable and properly protected. Wearing too tight or loose of clothing will reduce the mobility you have when working exposing yourself to hazards. In addition, you will wear these all day long. Being comfortable should be a high priority so you won’t be miserable while you work or lounge. Dickies has their own sizing chart for overalls.
