FORT WORTH, TEXAS (July 26, 2017) – Dickies®, the world’s leading performance workwear brand, introduces Temp-iQ™ Advanced Cooling Tees, the brand’s most innovative performance tees yet. These performance tees are launching under a new body regulating, temperature control product category known as Dickies Temp-iQ.

The Advanced Cooling Tee collection includes two innovative styles: the Performance Cooling Tee and the Technical Cooling Tee, each built with HeiQ® technology that quickly wicks away moisture while releasing a cooling sensation to keep you dry and comfortable – no matter the task.

  • The Performance Cooling Tee is available in both short-sleeve priced at $14.99 and long-sleeve priced at $16.99, and features raglan sleeves to give you maximum range-of-motion, a convenient chest pocket to provide easy access to gear and the same reliability you’ve come to expect from Dickies.
  • The short-sleeve Technical Cooling Tee, priced at $16.99, is constructed with birdseye mesh for maximum ventilation and features SilvadurTM odor protection technology which provides long-lasting freshness.

“While talking with customers in the field, our team discovered that a majority of workers reported heat as a pain point on the job,” said Brian Sheedy, Dickies SVP of Design and Merchandising. “Knowing that these guys need something to help cool them down, we wanted to design a work tee that would not only wick their sweat but keep them cool at the same time.”

Dickies Temp-iQ Advanced Cooling Tees are field-tested and approved by Dickies Pro Staff, a group of real workers with honest opinions about what matters to them on the job. Dickies Pro Staff is nation-wide and spans multiple industries, providing valuable feedback necessary for validating the innovative performance and comfort of Dickies Advanced Cooling Tees.

“By creating the Temp-iQ category, we’ve made a commitment to offer high performance apparel at a value that no other workwear brand can match,” said Brent Streit, Dickies VP of Marketing. “Our Advanced Cooling Tees deliver comfort to hard-working people at a price that everyone can afford.”

The Outdoor Retailer Summer Show attendees and media can preview Dickies Temp-iQ Advanced Cooling Tees at booth #16042 in Salt Lake City, July 26-July 29. The Cooling Tees will be available for consumer purchase in spring 2018 at national retailers and online at Dickies.com.
