A standard-fit, front-pocket, zip-up fleece sweatshirt with the ability to become one of the most versatile and valuable pieces of clothing, spending more time hanging on you than in your closet. Hoods up. Zippers down. Layered over a T-shirt or under a jacket. A hoodie is an essential piece of your wardrobe.
A pair of tapered twill jogger pants constructed from flex denim that mix comfort (elastic waistband) with style (slim fit). The best part? You don’t even have to jog in these, you can just sit around in them all day looking good.
A Dickies heavyweight long-sleeve crew-neck T-shirt for those times when a regular tee isn’t warm enough and a thermal is going to get too dang sweaty.
A short-sleeve, not super-deep v-neck T-shirt to show off a little clavicle (and maybe a lot of chest hair). And if you happen to throw a shirt or sweater over this tee, you won’t see any unsightly or unmatching collars underneath. That’s always a good look.
A Levi’s trucker jacket that, guess what, you don’t need a trucking license to wear. This button-down jean jack has a little stretch to it for layering but remember not to toss it in the dryer (unless you want an extra snug fit).
A reversible belt with a matte black buckle which means as long as you’re wearing black or brown leather shoes, you always have a 50/50 chance of sporting the right belt color. We’ll take those odds!
A pair of Levi’s 502 taper fit jeans that narrows toward the ankle (as opposed to a straight-leg that stays, well, straight all the way down). Still feels like a regular fit through the thigh with plenty of room to spare.
A moisture-wicking, water-resistant puffer jacket that works just as well as your everyday cold weather coat as it does during nights around the campgrounds. Either way, you’re feeling comfy and cozy in addition to stylish (a given).
A Hanes long sleeve henley shirt made with heavier weight «Beefy-T» cotton fabric for those times when you want to go a little classier but still just as comfortable as a long sleeve tee.
Levi’s 511 slim jeans that have a narrower fit from the hips down to the ankles, sit right below the waist, and have just a little bit of (much-needed) stretch in them.
A Hanes crew-neck short-sleeve T-Shirt for tall guys that’s 3 inches longer than their average tee. So no more exposed belly anytime you reach up to the top shelf for something (because people are always asking you to do that).
A six-pack of Hanes crew socks constructed with moisture-wicking «X-temp technology» for keeping your feet cool and dry no matter how much your barking dogs sweat all day cooped up in your shoes or sneaks. Woof!
A six-pack of tag-free Fruit of the Loom boxer briefs made from soft, breathable 100% cotton fabric. Moisture wicking and odor protection keep you in the «Coolzone» while «no-ride up legs» simultaneously keep you in your comfort zone all day long. So many zones!
A pair of fleece sweatpants that will certainly get a better workout as loungewear than activewear. Side pockets are great for transporting snacks from the kitchen when both hands are full.
A classic Dickie’s long sleeve jacket with faux-fleece diamond quilted lining material and four pockets is one of those rare articles of clothing that’s always ready for any activity (mostly chores) and will outlive and outlast almost everything else in your closet.
A Western-style Wrangler denim workshirt with snap buttons that might inspire thoughts of an alternate life spent as a ranch hand. We’re here to remind you that the only ranching experience you probably have comes from that blue bag of Doritos in your hand.
A pair of Dickies relaxed straight fit canvas carpenter jeans that are triple-stitched at the yoke, seat, and side seams so no matter the task (carpentry-based or otherwise) you’d have to go to phenomenal lengths to tear or split these pants.
A Hanes fleece pullover crew neck sweatshirt made from up to 5% recycled plastic bottles that won’t pill-up after washing. Better yet, check out that price tag.
A short sleeve polo shirt that hits at the hip and keeps things colorful thanks to its fade-resistance-treated fabric. Just please don’t pop that collar though. Or tuck it in.
A five-pack of tartan plaid Fruit of the Loom boxers that could only be improved up if it were a seven-pack to get you through an entire week without having to do laundry.
A six-pack of iconic Hanes V-neck white T-shirts made from pre-shrunk cotton fabric to help keep their shape and fit after repeated washing. A true must-have staple of the dresser drawer.
A pair of Wrangler regular fit jeans for regular guys looking for all-day comfort and durability and nothing too flashy. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
A pair of knit pajama shorts, because turning your regular PJ pants into cut-offs just isn’t worth all the effort. Plus you can totally get away with wearing these outdoors.
A Dickies «big & tall» short sleeve crew neck T-Shirt made from soft cotton jersey material that will continue to feel good no matter how hard your day has been. Plus no tag in the collar to dig into the back of your neck.
A long sleeve raglan crew T-shirt (aka a baseball style tee) that’s a quality casual look fit for both brunch or the ballpark (whenever both of those places start to happen again). But at least you’ll be prepared for when they do.
A pair of straight fit (full through the thigh and hip) chino pants to wear anytime and all the time, especially when you have «a thing» that you need to go to and don’t know what exactly to wear. Wear these. They’re never wrong.
A wind- and water-resistant sherpa-lined, hooded softshell jacket meant to protect you from the elements (the weather-type, not the periodic table type) on those especially cold days. Now is the perfect time to stock up for next winter.
A four-pack of Hanes «no-show» liner socks for those who simply can’t stand the thought of any cotton creeping out from their sneakers obscuring some exposed ankle.
A pair of Dickies «big & tall» original 874 work pants that never take a day off (just a short coffee-break for laundry). With stain- and wrinkle-resistance, they keep on the clock whenever you’re working overtime.
That’s it’s for today’s fashion show. Now go walk it off!
