Dockers recently introduced their Alpha Khaki line. They come in the Slim D1 fit and have a tapered leg. It appears that Dockers is positioning these as denim-like chinos. They recommend you “Break ‘em in like jeans. Wear ‘em like khaki.” The Alphas also have a “heavier weight fabric [that] molds to your body and keeps its shape.” Interesting. Like raw denim? We’ll see.
The Alpha Khaki is on sale now for $45 + free shipping. Not bad. If you sign up for Dockers newsletter, you’ll get an additional 20% off. That would bring the price down to $36, approaching impulse buy. I need some new back-to-school pants anyway. I might gives these a try.
