Dickies vs Carhartt
on September 11, 2015
Carhartt wins hands down. I haven't purchased one of these Dickie's shirts in years and I was somewhat disappointed at the quality of the fabric. The fabric is thinner than I remember and it itches without an undershirt on. The Carhartt shirts on the other hand are a lot thicker and I prefer the way the buttons are placed....with Dickies there is an odd distance between the top button and the next to last button.
However Dickies has Carhartt beat on colors hands down. I needed a dark brown work shirt and this was the only one available that I liked.
If you live in a warmer climate these will be fine but don't expect a heavy duty work shirt. You will still get a decent shirt and the style is classic.....but it is a little different than what the Dickies shirts I wore in the 80's.
Fit is good if not a little "loose". Order you regular Dickies sizing. I am an XL at 5'10" 220 lbs.
