What is a Dickie
A dickie is an interesting garment. Originally, the term referred to a false shirt-front. In modern fashion, a dickie might be worn under a dress jacket, if there is no intention to wear the jacket open. Or it might be worn under a sweater. In either case, the dickie would look like a shirt underneath the jacket, but it would really be only the collar and shirt-front and a bit of fabric around the back and shoulders to hold it in place while looking like a real shirt. Or it might be the top portion of a turtleneck sweater, to be worn under a V-neck shirt.
A knitted dickie is also a good option for winter wear, especially if the coat exposes the throat to the cold. A dickie can cover the neck and throat area, without adding a lot of bulk underneath the coat. It is this type of dickie that this article is about.
