Cities are changing and so are their builders. They are cities built on craft and big ideas, and the ones who are creating them aren’t afraid of hard work or getting their hands dirty. The benchmark for success has risen and those who are daring enough will rise up to meet it, wearing Dickies – the only brand that understands that you have to build the world you want to live in.

For most young boys, when they were asked what they want to be when they grow up the answer was “a policeman”, “a fireman”, “a doctor” but for Andy Fenner the answer was a little different- it was a butcher that he was destined to become. Co-owner of the popular Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants and Publik Wine Bar, Andy Fenner knows what it takes to make it in the food industry, namely: hard work, passion and dedication.

Before becoming a popular meat merchant, Andy worked in marketing, advertising and branding, not content with that, he later began food blogging before embarking on his journey as a well-respected meat merchant. Following his passion for food, Andy opened an “ethical butchery”. One that only sells meat from farmers he knows personally. Taking time to visit the farm and researching the treatment of the animals ensures that Andy gets the best meat in his store. The butchery not only sells meat from independent farmers, but Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants aims to celebrate these farmers and the work they do.

Enjoying a longstanding relationship with the Dickies brand, Andy Fenner says that “our (Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants) story with Dickies goes back to us trying to find someone who could manufacture clothes that would be able to stand up to what we do every day and also be aesthetically cool and this was the only brand that could do that. There is a synergy between the work that we do and also the brand. Yes, it is hardworking and durable and tough but it’s cool and good to look at as well.”

Dickies is the brand that Andy and his team turns to when they need long lasting, hardwearing clothing. For more information and to view the Dickie clothing range click here.
