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.
