I have had alot of luck with "Dickies" clothing for durability in the past. But in the last 3-4 years it has reallly sucked! What used to be a durable product has now become a half rate product in my opinion. I got a nice medium weight jacket at Christmas. I like the feel of it. Love the weight, but the pocket lining is about the quality of lining it with newspaper. I have sewn it twice and it still ripps open. I have a belt from 7 years ago by "Dickies" that I would not trade for any other, but have had 2 belts I bought in the past year tht have fallen apart. Sad they are made in "China", but even more sad that they let their product resemble that fact. I work for a living. I don't need work clothes that look like I beg for a living. Anyone else here that has seen the "dickies" decline?
