Which brand is better and more durable cherokee or dickies?

Nurses Uniform/Gear


Hi, Iam confused between cherokee and dickies medical uniforms that which one is more better and durable and more reasonable?

Dickies IMHO are more durable. I've had the Cherokee label fall off on my Cherokee scrubs while my dickies are still in good condition.

I used to prefer the Dickies brand because the fabric was thicker and more durable. Tough stuff. But noticed that the company changed fabric content some time back to a thinner fabric that more closely resembles competitors, including Cherokee. I also no longer like the fit of the sleeves on Dickies tops, so have moved on to a roomier Cherokee Core Stretch unisex top and have returned to the Uniform Advantage Butter Soft top. Just stocked up on what I hope to be my last set of new uniforms.

It really depends on the line you are buying. Both have similar cheap products to more expensive. I have switched to different labels but the Dickie's line that was more "youth geared" was pretty good six years ago. Cherokee was okay but I think I bought a cheaper line. I think I may have liked the equivalent "youth" line but the pants ripped.

I can't think of what their names were but basically a lot of pockets and cargo pants style.

Edit: I think it was gen flex for Dickies that held out pretty well. I think I may have used Cherokee Workwear since a top looks similar and that line seems to be a bit cheaper than thd gen flex.

l found in my experience that the Cherokee Workwear line is supper cheap and not comfortable. But i found that the Cherokee Infinity line is awesome! really comfortable and practical!

In the UK, both Cherokee (https://www.simonjersey.com/shop-all-brands-c3638/cherokee-medical-c4836) and Dickies (https://www.simonjersey.com/shop-all-brands-c3638/dickies-medical-c6422) are increasingly gaining traction as the recognised brands for Nurses (both in the public and private sector). Infinity is also splitting apart from Cherokee as its own standalone brand (https://www.simonjersey.com/infinity-c6430).
