 Dickies is widely known for their quality workwear.  Where/when I grew up in Southern California Dickies was also a clothing brand of choice for skaters.  When Dickies approached me about reviewing their clothing checked out their website and was wowed by the clothing choices they carry for men, women, teens, and children.  Dickies specializes in workwear and school (uniform) wear, but their most of those styles are so versatile they can be worn every day.
Their shorts are perfect for cooling off in the summer heat.  We ordered a pair for The Husband, myself, and one for Big Brother.  The FlexWaist, Flat Front shorts we ordered for little Brother are perfect for summer days, but also look good with a button up shirt for a more dressy casual look.  If you are looking for back to school clothes or uniforms, these are some sharp looking shorts.  They are stain and wrinkle resistant, feature a FlexWaist adjustable waistband, and there is no exterior logo.  I was very surprised by how inexpensive all the Dickies clothes were.  This pair of shorts retails for only $14.99!

I received the Women’s 13″ Stretch Twill Short, and, I have to say that they look better on me than they do on the website (I found that to be the case with all the shorts we received).  -Judging from the picture to the left I have an inflated sense of how good I look.-  I’m usually very nervous to order clothes for myself online because I’m really picky about my shorts and jeans and you just never know how they’re going to fit until you’ve actually tried them on.  After the first washing I was afraid that these shorts were going to be too small, but once I’d been wearing them they stretched out and were very flattering.  I LOVE the way these shorts look on me–and I don’t say that lightly. 🙂  They have the perfect amount of stretch to make them very comfortable. These shorts retail for only $21.99.  That’s less than I buy most of my shorts for ON SALE!

I have to admit that I was really nervous about the 13″ Peached Twill Cargo Shorts we ordered for The Husband.  I just hoped they looked better on him than they did on the model (sorry model guy!).  Once we washed them they looked perfect!  These are perfect for the laid back summer look.  I am very happy with the way they look–The Husband is too, of course.  Yet again, at $24.99, the price on these shorts is just right.
