Spring Essentials

Have you ever tried on a lightweight shirt before?  If your answer is no, then I suggest you do.  It really makes a difference when it’s hot outside and you want something other than a t-shirt.  The light cotton blend feels like nothing when worn.

Thanks Dillon.

I really like the shirt-tucked-in look.  But it doesn’t always look right, so don’t force it.  

Go with what your instinct tells you, it’s usually right.  

And if the length of the shirt is proper, then leave it out.  

Miss a few buttons.  

Roll your sleeves up a little further.

And enjoy this weather before you’re complaining about how it’s to hot out.

Part II

Second round with Dockers.  I never thought I would say this, but I like the white pants.

You want to hear more about what Dillon and I thought?  Here you go:

Why did you choose the White Alpha Khaki?

Jace: Because I don’t have any pairs of white pants.

Crazy story, right?

Dillon: White pants make a statement, properly fitted white pants make sure the statement is sound and these Alphas make sure the statement is “I’m a bit of a boss” - I’ve always been a big fan of white pants and while my lifestyle cleanliness often begs to differ, through a mix of dishwasher detergent, bleach & extra napkins I somehow persevere. In my opinion white pants convey a message of self confidence and self awareness. Play it up, be confident and have fun.

How did you choose to style the Dockers Alpha Khaki in White?

Jace: I pull inspiration from a lot of pictures and remember coming across one with a guy wearing denim and white and thinking, “man, that’s a good look, but I don’t have white pants”.

And then Docker’s Alpha Khaki was introduced to me.

And I took them out for some drinks,

A bite to eat and some coffee.

And here we are.

White & denim.

Dillon: I already own err rather, owned a pair of white pants so I wanted to do something to really set these apart. I had been seeing the whole ‘dip dye’ trend floating around and figured I’d give it a try on a much smaller scale (just the very bottom) - the result was great and I think it worked pretty well. 

I wanted people to know I don’t take myself too seriously and I was well aware I was wearing ‘tight white pants’ - so I played it up with a tie dye handkerchief and watch band, a comfortable unstructured cotton blazer, a chambray shirt & some suede wingtips.

How would you wear these in the Summer and after?

Jace: I would treat them just like any other pair of pants.  

It’s easy to get carried away whenever you worry about them being white pants.

I would definitely avoid sitting down as much as possible though.

It’s all fun and games until you get your new white pants dirty.

Dillon: With everything & almost everywhere. Another perk of white pants in my humble opinion: they truly are a blank slate and a color (or lack there of) that embraces almost all others. This summer I’ll be relying on comfortable color combinations to keep these pants cool & versatile. Whites & blues, grays, browns, greens, even black. cuff/roll them, or hem them a bit short for the summer. Beyond the summer months, I’d pull them out about once every month as a bit of a statement piece. Or when it rains/snows - theres something very textilely ironic about it.
