Dockers Men’s Signature Khaki D3 Pant

Dockers Men's Signature Khaki D3 PantI have a love hate relationship with Dockers, most of the items lately I have loved.  I just received my pants in the mail (love ordering online) to wear on the weekend to relax in.  I am trying to cut back from business on the weekend, just relaxation and some nice fitting clothing.  Now it all comes down to preference here because there are 4 main cuts/styles that can be purchased and I thought I might try the Classic (D3) Khaki first.  If you already have the pants we recommend the ExOfficio Chas’r to keep bugs off of you while outdoors and the shirt is just so comfortable to wear.

I know this may not be everyone’s style, but I like the modern flat front look and the fact that these khakis are wrinkle resistant is a big plus.  I hate to iron like any man does and will put these to the test to see how wrinkle resistant these pants really are.  It might get a little scary after I pull these out of the dryer.  If you hate the Classic fit then there are three others for you to choose from.  First you have the Slim fit (D1) which is slim through seat and thigh.  Second you have the Straight cut (D2) which is straight through seat and thigh.  The Relaxed (D4) is just what it means, extra roomy through seat and thigh.  Let’s take a deeper look at the classic.

Features of the Dockers Men’s Signature Khaki Pant

So I am unpacking my new pants and looking at the features I noticed that Dockers is claiming that the pants feature no-wrinkle fabric and a permanent crease.  This is the answer to every man’s problems when it comes to khakis.  For many years I have steered clear of khakis because of the high maintenance and horrible wrinkles.  We will find out how true the statement is in a moment.

While holding these pants in my hand I can tell that they used quality fabric.  Made from 100 percent cotton twill, these should feel pretty nice to have on.  Also, I can’t mess my new khakis up while washing them coming with fade resistant technology to get long life out of my pants.  Hope these live up to all the hype!

The moment you have been waiting for, it is time to try these on.  First impression is that they are true to size.  When I purchased the D2 they were a little short, but these are the proper length and have a comfort band around the waist that stretches about an inch.  This is very good to have through out the day, especially after a heavy meal.  The D3 comes with a metal clasp and a button to hold things together.  I am a big fan of the clasp over the D2 which just has the button.  Metal clasps are easier to open and seem to hold up better over time.

Looking in the mirror, I like the tapered leg and flat front.  After my first wash the crease is still distinct and the pants are wrinkle resistant.  Now even though they are wrinkle resistant there will still be wrinkles, but by far the best wrinkle resistant khakis I have found to date.  Here are the features offered by Dockers:

  • No-wrinkle fabric keeps you looking great
  • Expandable waistband for comfort
  • Two off-seam pockets on sides and two buttoned welt pockets on back
  • Staying Power Technology
  • Made with rich cotton twill
  • Machine washable for easy care

What’s great about the D3 is that it comes in many different colors and types to choose from.  My next purchase will be the Charcoal Heather D3’s or a pair of the Dark Olive.  If you are looking for a classy pair of pants, these are a great place to start.

Final Thoughts on the Dockers Men’s Signature Khaki D3

Dockers really has made me a firm believer in their product again after wearing these around town for the weekend.  Great fit and many features other companies are not implementing with their own products.  Get some more information from the link below.
