    Anyone still wear these?

    I used to wear these exclusively from about 1990-1998 before I started wearing jeans again. I would have my tailor taper and slim the leg to about 7.5" across the bottom and hemmed to just above the no break point, slightly highwater.

    The 65/35 poly/cotton fabric wasn't the best but didnt need ironing (American version of Sta-prest). I noticed that Dickies now sells a 100% cotton twill version that I might check out. Only $19!

    Back in the early to mid-nineties I would have my Ben Davis (in almost every color) pegged and hemmed to just above the ankle to show off the argyle and Florsheim Imperial wingtips.

    I used to some years ago, and probably still would if it wasnt for that horrible material. If I could find 100% cotton, I´d be in some brown and burgundy ones. I kinda like the cut as it is, loose and comfy.

    I used to work at Fry's Electronics and wore the pair I had 50% of the time. I agree that the material feels awful now compared to my nicer pants but then I had no idea.

    I can't get rid of my Dickies, though I haven't worn them in at least two years. Back in the day, Dickies carpenter jeans were the default skateboarding pants for kids that couldn't afford Vision Streetwear marble-notebook print pants.

    My brown dickies 5 pockets are great. I wear them every weekend to church, they dress up quite well imo.

    Ben Davis and Florsheim Imperial wingtips?

    Yes, for example: black ss button-up or F Perry polo or snug t, dark green pegged and hemmed BD pants, flash but complementary argyle socks and black wingtips.

    I bought a pair of Dickies a few years ago and they've held up well. I'd buy more if I needed them, poly-blend or not.

    yea got them in a few days ago, charcoal grey 100% cotton

    they're just like the regular work pants but in all cotton twill (usually they are 65 poly/35 cotton)

    I slimmed the leg (12" at thigh down from 13, 7.5" at hem down from 9) and hemmed to no-break length

    I've always liked Dickies so these are great, only $19.99+shipping and add another $20 for tailoring and the end result is a great casual pant to bum around in

    The 100% cotton makes a huge difference in how they feel, they still have a good kind of stiffness that these should have but the fabric is much softer
