The name of Perth label and store Lo-Fi is no trick: the brand takes aesthetic inspiration from all things lo-fidelity, musical, and video, shot through a tropical, psychedelic lens. While sibling label and precursor Butter Goods remains staunchly loyal to its mission of representing skate culture on Australia’s west coast, Lo-Fi is surrounded by an aura without self-seriousness, free to develop into an expansive aesthetic. Untied to any one particular subculture, lo-fi sources inspiration from across the sub-cultural and pop-cultural spectrum, with a particular affinity for the convergence between the notion of lo-fidelity and discarded objects and images from the past, either due to technological obsolescence or perceived irrelevance.
Already in their short history, Lo-Fi have collaborated with some of the most iconic names in streetwear, from the new vanguard to timeless classics. What pant could be more essential to the history of street fashion than Dickies? Venerated by various subcultures, particularly in Southern California, the Dickies 874 is the world’s most famous workwear pant. Here in the black colourway, this 874 collaboration between Lo-Fi and Dickies has all the features of the iconic pant: straight leg fit, zip fly with clip closure, two back welt pockets, and two side slant pockets. The Lo-Fi touch comes by way of the seasonal ‘experiment’ motif, printed on the right leg.
