Definition: Dickie


n. A type of false shirt-front. Usually designed to be worn with a tuxedo. The rigid plastic dickie came into fashion in the latter years of the 19th century, and was one of the first successful commercial applications of celluloid. Hard plastic dickies have long since gone out of fashion, but cloth turtleneck-style dickies are still sometimes seen.

Buy this Tory Burch Dickie with Epaulettes on sale for $100 (originally $250).

I've seen dickies in stores but I can't see myself buying one I have too many bad memories of the ones my grandma used to wear, they just seem so inauthentic.

Famous dickie: VERY visible one on "cousin Eddie"- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation... every time I hear "dickie" I think of his.
