Since 1992, Dickies has been making purpose built work apparel that gets the job done. Now Matix has partnered with Dickies to provide you with a board short constructed in that same rugged spirit. In fact it took only a few weeks for our Surf TM, Chase Stopnik to wear in a pair of dickies original 874 before he was inspired to pay homage to the American worker by combining the dirt and grit of the job site with the comfort and weight of a traditional Matix boardshort. The result, The Original 874 boardshort with all the durability and detailing you expect from dickies without the weight. Built of 100-percent sublimated polyester to work off shore and in the water.
