Dickies Partners with Pro Skateboarder Vincent Alvarez
Dickies, the world’s leading workwear brand and original apparel of choice for skateboarders, announced today the launch of an exclusive collection with professional skateboarder and member of Dickies skateboarding team, Vincent Alvarez. The Dickies x Vincent Alvarez Signature Collection comes during Dickies centennial celebration but also during Alvarez’s decade with the Dickies skate team.
Inspired by his Aztec roots and the textures of his stomping grounds, the Dickies x Vincent Alvarez Signature capsule collection embodies the raw spirit and style required to keep up with the ‘el gobernador’ himself. Each item in the nine-piece collection embodies the unique aesthetic of the skateboard community.
Paying homage to East Los Angeles, DIY culture and his hardworking roots, as well as his favorite concrete playgrounds around the city, Alvarez designed his nine-piece collection to fit every skater, no matter shape or size. The capsule features items including t-shirts, hoodies, vests, caps, jeans, pants, and shorts all marrying Alvarez’s unique designs and Dickies durability.
“To have been supported by Dickies for the last ten years has been a blessing of its own,” said Alvarez. “Dickies’ growing commitment to skateboarding is inspiring for so many within the culture and I am excited to play a part in it. My signature collection features clothes I would want to wear regardless, and I hope skaters everywhere are stoked by it and want to skate.”
The collection is available for purchase internationally via Dickies.com. For more information on the Dickies Skateboarding team, follow @dickiesskate on Instagram.
