Dockers: Alpha Khakis
When it comes to fashion and style, women often say that men have it easy. With the vast development and changes menswear has undergone in the recent years, it’s a fairly bold statement to make these days. However, at least in one aspect, it still rings true – the number of choices available to us gents is still relatively small.
For most, all we require are some form of trousers, a shirt/tee and a knit/jacket, and we’re done. But what happens when you need something in between? What happens when the occasion calls from something a bit smarter than jeans, but not as formal as a pair of trousers? In steps Dockers with their range of chinos: the Alpha Khaki.
The Alpha Khaki provides the ideal mix between the versatile nature of chinos and the attitude of jeans – ensuring they look just as good in a smart-casual setting as they do thrown on with a plain tee at the weekend.
The Alpha Khaki design has been around for a few years now and has been my personal go-to when it comes to purchasing more relaxed chinos in autumnal colours such as brown, green and orange. However, with the launch of the new AW13 collection, Dockers has really come into their own.
Along with the standard array of block-coloured chinos, there has been the introduction of on trend prints and other seasonally-appropriate fabrics. For example, highlights now include mustard slim-fit cargo trousers, olive paisley print chinos and camouflage corduroys.
The brand have also started to develop and expand their product range, branching out from their signature chino line by offering high quality t-shirts, knitwear and a stand out grey check waistcoat/trouser combination.
With these new additions and the continued refinement of an already iconic and simple design, the Alpha Khaki is an essential consideration for any style-conscious gent.
You can shop the new Alpha Khaki AW13 collection now at Dockers.com, priced from £75.
