Shopping: Dockers deals -- $68 and less

September 24, 2009 |  3:57 pm


These aren't your dads Dockers.

The khaki pants once synonymous with casual Fridays and Internet start-ups get a much-needed style update "one leg at a time," according to the brand’s new slogan, which appears on the inner waistband.


Dockers now come in a two new styles. The first is a $58 Deconstructed, flat-front, straight-leg khaki in heavy-cotton twill with expandable bellow patch pockets. This pant also comes in seasonal colors -- Nantucket red, blue and green plus the golden-brown standard. The second style is the military-influenced Dockers K-1 ($68) featuring a hook-and-eye front closure, button fly and three-ply cotton twill fabric with traditional rear welt pockets. Thankfully, no dry-clean-only labels on these bottoms -- go ahead and toss them in the wash.

Both the Deconstructed and K-1 also come in women's sizes ($48-68) and Dockers' broad fits (30- to 40-inch waist for men). And because khakis popped up on the trend map for next spring, appearing in Alexander Wang and Boy by Band of Outsiders Fashion Week presentations in New York, Dockers are an even greater value for the price.
