Brendan Buckley, Global Marketing Director for Jameson comments: “Jameson Irish Whiskey was founded in 1780, when workwear was the uniform of the working community, often seen in the local pub after a hard day’s work. Meanwhile, Dickies began its life in 1922 as an iconic, quality workwear brand. Craft and kinship underpin both brands and we are delighted to bring that shared ethos to life through the Crafted Together Jameson x Dickies collection.”
“Quality craftsmanship is a longstanding pillar of our Dickies business, and deeply rooted in our workmanship community,” says Sarah Crockett, Dickies Chief Marketing Officer. “Dickies and Jameson teaming up feels like a natural partnership due to both brand identities and our shared DNA. We’re thrilled to collaborate with Jameson Whiskey to commemorate our brand stories and most importantly, celebrate our loyal customers.”
The campaign features creators and makers from the respective communities of Jameson Whiskey and Dickies wearing the collection, and was shot in Midleton Distillery, Cork by Dublin-Born, Brooklyn-based photographer, Rich Gilligan, known for his photographic documentary approach to portraiture and fashion. The resulting creative presents a modern-day aesthetic of industrial workwear.
Crafted Together is a celebration of the real creator and maker communities who are inspired by their dedication to craft, with a constant passion to evolve. With shared values and matching uniforms, Jameson and Dickies are connecting kindred spirits with this collaboration, bringing to life the appreciation of craft shared by both brands and the modern craftspeople of today.
