Today is the first time we are offering Dockers khakis on Gilt MAN and I, for one, could not be more excited. Guys in the know have been gravitating back to the storied brand in droves for the last few years for four great reasons. First: Dockers’ fit has improved dramatically as of late. They are making pants that rival the fit of much more expensive European manufactured chinos, but with a distinctly American wash. They look great with a t-shirt or a sport coat. Second: You can’t beat the price for the quality. Third: the chinos are offered in an awesome variety of colors, like this Nantucket Red, that encourage fellas to add a little zing to their spring wardrobe. And Finally, Four: It’s getting hot out there and a man cannot live by jeans alone. Oh and a bonus: They lend themselves nicely to the tight roll.

Dockers, on sale for the first time today at noon ET, on Gilt MAN.

    You’re kidding right? Dockers? I have to say I’m a little disappointed. It would seem your stylists feel the same way. I can almost hear them cursing from here in Los Angeles, as they peg and roll the cuffs to try and make it not look like a Sears ad. I know you guys are growing by leaps and bounds, but please don’t sell out. Keep your edge. Know when to say “no.”

    Chris- Just a personal aside here. I own two pairs of Dockers that I wear regularly, one a dark chocolate chino, the other a Nantucket Red (similar to the one above), both in a slim fit. They’ve made a real concerted effort to refine their brand, and it’s paying off for them handsomely.

    Christopher, on any given day at least one of our editors is wearing Dockers khakis, and we happen to know that is also true of the editors of two other little publications you might have heard of: Esquire and GQ. And each one of them, and us, choose to wear these wardrobe staples with a huge variety of stuff. The beauty is in the versatility. The edge you can add yourself.
