They are popular in certain circles, like emo kids, hipsters and even some segments of the hip hop set.

I used to wear Dickies almost exclusively from like 90-96 before rediscovering jeans. Tapered to 15" bottoms, no break. It's definitely either a "service worker" pant or a subculture pant, the second being my reason.

But yea, they kinda suck don't they. By the time they become soft I've blow a hole in the knee.

It provides ratings on current DSM-IV symptoms of depression, with the exceptions of hypersomnia, increased appetite, and concentration/indecision. The HAMD was originally designed to be administered by a trained clinician using a semi-structured clinical interview. However, Hamilton provided only general guidelines for the administration and scoring of the scale. No standardized probe questions were provided to elicit information from patients and no behaviorally specific guidelines were developed for determining each item's rating. The 17-items are rated on either a 5-point (0-4) or a 3-point (0-2) scale. In general, the 5-point scale items use a rating of 0 = absent; 1 = doubtful to mild; 2 = mild to moderate; 3 = moderate to severe; 4 = very severe. A rating of 4 is usually reserved for extreme symptoms. The 3-point scale items used a rating of 0 = absent; 1 = probable or mild; 2 = definite.

This maybe just a Yankee problem. Dickies in Europe are built properly
