Dockers Alpha Khakis present: The Blind Barber

By Laura on July 25th, 2011

Dockers have been doing a great job re-brand themselves recently, proving they are no longer just for your dad. The latest product to join their line-up is the Alpha Khaki. To celebrate the launch Dockers have partnered with the New York barbershop, The Blind Barber. Despite the fact they have only been open for a year, they have developed a cult following and are best known for their quality cuts in a subdued lifestyle environment – qualities mirrored by the Dockers.

The Alpha khaki combines aims to combine the sensibilities of denim including a slimmer fit, lower rise and beefier construction with the comfort of khakis. The Alpha features “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 in ways denim would soften and break in over time.”

Expect to see the Alpha in stores from August in 12 different colourways.

Love The Look: berry and khaki

Proving that you don’t need to go for mundane colours in a smart outfit, this young gent is sporting a fantastic khaki suit. It runs the risk of looking a little drab but thanks to some clever combinations of colour he’s managed to turn it into something a little special.

A cranberry-coloured cardigan contrasts nicely, and the faux-tortoiseshell buttons match the suit to bring it all together. The real star of the show is the baby pink shirt, a white shirt might have killed this look, but the imperceptibly rose shirt gently underlines the point made by the cardigan.

Love the Look: Tommi on Hel Looks

Twenty-two year old Josh Hartnett lookalike Tommi has put together a cracking outfit using some quite simple pieces. I like the tie tucked into the shirt to show off the new buttons he added.
The colour of the khakis is quite crucial to the look, in a more beige tone the outfit wouldn’t be as effective but the greenish hue of the trousers add interest. Note the rolled-up trouser legs, a quick and easy way to update your look. A word of warning though, don’t go too high or you’ll resemble London gig promoter Josh Weller (nice hair, shame about the trews).



Rokit khaki jumper

Yesterday’s Love the Look outfit featured a slouchy green cardigan which acted as the showpiece for a palette of neutrals.

Rokit’s jumper is a similarly warm shade of khaki that would look great teamed in a similar fashion with grey trousers, tan shoes and maybe with a gold watch to bring out the rich tones of green. It’s very thick which suggests it is probably army surplus and would make a hassle-free substitute for a jacket and will only set you back £15.

French Connection army bag is perfect for festivals

By admin on July 25th, 2008

risptop army bag french connection mens.jpgFor those of you who haven’t yet got yourself a small everyday bag French Connection’s army bag is perfect. I the way ripstop looks techy and the dark duck egg blue colour contrasts nicely with the khaki suede bottom.

The bag is a great size for your daily essentials, and is quietly smart. It’s sturdy enough to pack all your festival kit and take a bit of battering. The price has been reduced from £30 to £14 which means if you do get it covered in mud it’s nothing to cry about.

Burton stone cotton shorts

By admin on June 5th, 2008

burton shorts tailored.jpgIn my continuing mission to get the men of Britain into short shorts I’ve found a great pair which combines the tailoring of a high-fashion pair of short shorts with good wearability and even better price.

These cotton shorts are only £25 from Burton, they have a great shape but the lightness of the fabric gives it a more relaxed feel.

Team with brightly coloured deck shoes and an acid pastel polo for a sarcastic Sloane look, or if you’re in a more sincere mood wear with a fine gauge shirt with rolled up sleeves and canvas lace ups.


Topman v-neck cashmere jumper

By ShinyMedia on December 28th, 2007

The cashmere may not be very longwearing or the best quality but when a jumper like this is reduced to £17 it’s worth a punt. It’s from Topman and you don’t even have to leave the house to get it and what’s more the khaki colour is unusual but wearable. Team it with grey trousers and tee in a soft but luminous colour like coral which is tipped to be the hot colour this spring.
