Dickies: "874 vs. The Junkyard" [00:35]# The 874 is Dickies’ classic workingman’s pants. In three black-and-white commercials that are long on tough graft and masculinity, the hardwearing nature of the pants is demonstrated. First, we see a man rolling down a really very steep hill in the garb, and in another we are shown two motorcyclists who, for all the power in their big two-wheelers, need a few seconds to
tear the pants apart. Similarly, the pants also perform well in the junkyard.
