The Dockers® Brand Offers Men Another Reason to “Wear The Pants” With the Introduction of its Newest Style, the “Alpha” Khaki
SAN FRANCISCO – Today, the Dockers® brand introduces a new denim alternative – the “Alpha” khaki. Lifting a blue jean’s best attributes – including its slim fit, lower rise, and rugged construction – the “Alpha” khaki combines the ease of denim with the more polished design details of an iconic khaki pant.
The “Alpha” arrives in stores this August in a wide range of versatile colors along with distressed, vintage-derived khaki finishes. Highly-versatile and suited for a number of wearing occasions, the “Alpha” khaki ranges in price from $68.00 for timeless colors to $128.00 for more limited-edition, hand-crafted styles.
“Men love their jeans, especially the way they wear over time and how they can be dressed up or down,” says Doug Conklyn, Dockers® Senior Vice President of Global Design. “We’ve created the Alpha khaki as the perfect alternative to jeans. It’s got the rugged attitude and spirit of a jean, but the more cleaned up, classic look of a khaki. And it wears in overtime as his jeans would.”
The “Alpha” khaki incorporates several construction techniques typically used when creating jeans, including reinforcement, topstitching and over-lock seaming details, along with some of the dressed-up touches of a more tailored trouser. Similar to a pair of jeans, the “Alpha” is cut from heavier-weight khaki fabrics, specifically selected to wear, wrinkle and age overtime.
New for the Fall 2011 season, the “Alpha” will be offered in a range of 12 colors, including iconic khaki shades along with a selection of bold, vibrant tones that are true to “Alpha” form, including: Sahara Red; Legion Blue; Smokey Aqua; Terra Cotta Orange and a deep Mustard Yellow among others.
The “Alpha” is also offered in a range of aged, distressed finishes inspired by wear patterns found on khaki’s tested by real men. Using these “road-tested” results as an authentic source of inspiration, Dockers® design developed 4 unique finish options including:
· A ”clean-slate” version that allows the wearer to take a basic khaki and create their own custom, finish as they break in and soften with time and wear.
· The 1-year Finish: slightly rumpled yet still fresh, this finish is just beginning to show its wear—and potential.
· The 5-year Finish: rough and ragged, the 5-year has been authentically aged with a great deal of tough love.
· The 10-year Finish: lived in, worn and torn, this is THE pant of a survivor.
Arriving in stores in August, the “Alpha” Khaki will be available for purchase at a number of retailers, including Urban Outfitters; select Bloomingdale’s locations; and American Rag in select finishes. It will also be available online via www.dockers.com
