As a bunch of guys always trying to make casual elegance easy, we've got a new obsession: Dockers' Alpha khakis. Don't think Dad's pleated pants. As you can see in the video above—shot at our beloved Blind Barber in the East Village—these khakis are tailored to fit the modern guy's casual lifestyle. Even with their sophisticated look, they actually fit just like those prized low-rise slim jeans in your closet. Once you've chosen a color from the eight hues offered (or snag the whole bunch!), break in these bad boys and make them your own.
Alpha Khakis by Dockers, $68-$128 available at Nordstrom, Urban Oufitters, Bloomingdale's, American Rag, and www.dockers.com
