HOW DID THEY RIDE? starchy at first

ANYTHING RANDOM HAPPEN THE FIRST TIME YOU USED THE PRODUCT? they talked

OVERALL VIBE: Ed Templeton made Dickies cool at a time when everything was oversized and puffy. Ed’s style on a skateboard, Fugazi stickers, not to mention Toy Machine and his artwork was accentuated by the trousers he wore.
You could see the white in the pockets and when he pushed you could see his socks and it was just cool OK! Years later everyone’s worked out that Dickies are a thing (I wore them before you) and so here we are.
OVERALL RATING: 8 for effort, 6 for punctuality
