  • Tough Jobs Need Tough Clothing


    Safety men’s workwear and footwear is unavoidable and even required with the current, strict health and safety laws. According to OSHA, 1,000 workers die in construction accidents each year and another 10,000 construction workers will be seriously injured while on the job—having the correct gear is a must. And army/navy surplus retail stores like Dave’s New York understand the need for work uniforms that aren’t only safe, but comfortable, durable and fashionable. Dave’s has all kinds clothing and accessories to keep you safe, no matter if you’re an architect, zoologist, logger, miner, construction worker, electrical engineer, factory worker or maintenance man. Even ironworkers need clothing to give them a hand.

    Accidents do happen—manual labor can be dangerous and you need to be prepared. Steel toe boots, work boots and winter boots from Timberland, Red Wing or Chippewa can protect your feet from heavy falling objects or ankle injuries resulting from falling or tripping on site. Work gloves are also a key element in construction clothing—they protect you from skin irritation and hand injuries that can happen when using hand-held equipment or lifting with your hands. Dave’s winter and work gloves from Carhartt have got you covered. Crews working on highways, roadways and streets need reflective wear like vests and tees from Carhartt to keep them visible so they won’t get hit or injured by cars. And lastly electrical, chemical and factory workers need heavy-duty clothes including overalls, pants, shirts and jackets from Carhartt to protect them from the elements they face on a daily basis. It’s always best to play it safe.

  • Woolrich, Always a Classic


    For over 179 years, Woolrich Clothing has been the final destination for the outdoor lifestyle and its clothing. And, it’s not just for lumberjacks and bears. This season, Dave’s New York will feature their fall/winter collection and a variety of winter outerwear styles. The Arctic Parka is always a men’s outwear hit—we can’t seem to keep them in stock. You’ll also want to check out the Buffalo Check Wool Shirt. Of course it will look familiar to you—over five generations of Americans have sported this comfortable classic and maybe even your great-great grandfather. Red, black and white plaid is very popular, but we do carry other colors.  The mock turtlenecks come in a variety of colors, are so comfortable with their smooth, distressed jersey fabric and go well under a sweater or heavy shirt. Many guys tell us they wear it alone year round. And if you need a new sweater, you’ll definitely want to pick up a Woolrich—with classic designs, quality wool and easy care, it’s a no-brainer. Check our Woolrich catalog in the store or online.

  • Woolrich, an American Classic


    When people think of Woolrich, the first thing that comes to mind is quality outdoor clothing. John Rich founded the company in the 1830s, selling woolen fabrics, socks, coverlets and yarn from a mule cart to residents of lumber camps. Thus, the name Woolrich.  In 1845, he built a woolen mill in Chatham Run, Pennsylvania that still stands today. It is a wide-told legend that Woolrich was the first to use a zipper in men’s trousers. Two items, the Railroad Vest and Buffalo Checked Shirt, were designed in the 1880s to keep outdoorsmen warm and are still hot sellers today. The Woolrich name has always been synonymous with value and quality goods that last for generations and have been passed down from one generation to the next. If you don’t believe us, check your grand father’s or father’s closet.
    Woolrich is also credited for developing down insulation and other high-tech materials for menswear. The Woolrich Artic Parka is insulated with a 540-Fill Grey Duck Down and is perfect for the extreme cold of New York winters.  And the Woolrich Down Parka is so fashionable that women have come in to purchase it not just for their husbands and boyfriends, but for their selves. The Europeans are scooping up the Woolrich Parka not just because of the escalating Euro, but because they aren’t know for mild winters, either. With a price tag a little over $200, it’s hard to find a men’s parka or any down coat of quality for even twice the price. This coat will sell out quickly, so don’t wait and get one now. Dave’s New York also carries other Woolrich jackets, shirts, gloves, hats and sweaters in our store that aren’t available on the website.

  • Levi’s, an American Original


    Levi's jeans at Dave's New York

    Just like James Dean, Levi’s Jeans are an American Classic and are rough, tough and fashionable. And with any legend there are myths and truths.  The 1st Levi’s myth is there was a Mr. Levi and a Mr. Strauss who started the company and that’s where the company name, Levi Strauss, came from—it was actually founded by a man named Loeb Strauss from Bavaria. And at first they were called Loeb’s—fortunately he rethought the name and changed it to Levi’s. The 2nd myth is how Levi’s Blue Jeans came into existence. Legend has it that in San Francisco Mr. Levi ran a division of his brothers’ dry goods business and produced strong sturdy pants for miners from brown canvas and dyed then blue—he then added rivets and patented them in 1873. In reality, he joined forces with a Nevada tailor named Jacob Davis, who had a new idea in clothes manufacturing that involved rivets. And, the rest is history.

    Sure, Levi’s started with overalls in the 1870s. Modern jeans, as we now know them, weren’t produced until the 1920s. After World War II, they became a great commodity and were solely sold to defense workers. In the 1950s and 1960s, Levi’s became associated with counter culture—greasers, mods, rockers, hippies and skinheads sported them proudly. This was brought on by the premier of Levi’s Men’s Jeans Shrink to Fit 501s that gave you two sizing options—the size you were sold and the size they could become, if you shrank them.

    Levi's 514

    Levi's

    Today, Levi’s are still a fashion statement and one of the most durable jeans out there that can take you from work to play, even if your job is a construction worker. The Levi’s 514 is a slim, straight jean for men and a top seller for Dave’s New York—it’s very similar to the 512 skinny fit jeans.  And the Levi’s 527 Regular Boot Cut is also a big seller and sits comfortably just below the waist. Dave’s carries a wide array of Levi’s Men’s Jeans, including the original 501s, Rigid 501s that shrink to fit, relaxed fit, low boot cut and loose fit. Plus, Dave’s also carries Levi’s blue jean jackets, long-sleeve denim shirts and khaki cargo pants. You’re sure to find a pair that fits your fashion sense and body type. Levi’s like to refer to them as a “canvas for personal expression”.
