Back in 1922 when C. Don Williamson started a small family company with his father and cousin we doubt they could have imagined just how influential what they were creating would be. First coming together in 1918, the family founded the U.S. Overall Company, this would go on to become the Dickies only a few years later.
in 1922, C. Don Williamson joined with his father and cousin to buy 100% of the overall company on a one-third-each basis and renamed it Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company. Williamson-Dickie Mfg. went from a small manufacturer of bib overalls to become the largest manufacturer of work clothes in the world.
