Everyone seems really eager to talk about slim chinos so I thought it might make sense to continue the conversation on this lovely Monday. When we last chatted about Dockers, their new Ivy inspired Ankle Chinos (or "Khaki Waders") had just hit the market. Available exclusively at Urban Outfitters, then at Docker's own online store, these pants seemed to be just the tip of the iceberg for Dockers' big Fall 2010 "rebranding/relaunching". I'm not sure how often you hit the Dockers website, but they have added some new slim styles to compliment their Waders. Dockers has been running with slim fit for quite sometime, but recently have begun offering tapered models with leg openings more appealing to the younger khaki shopper (15" specifically). The SF Tapered Khaki is exactly the same as the Khaki Wader, but adds 2" to the inseam enabling more of Dockers' customers over 6' to wear a pair of pants that don't look like a hand me down gone wrong (the standard 30" inseam on the Wader only works for a certain person), though I still don't understand the rationale behind refusing to offer anything longer than a 32" inseam. So what does this all mean? If your inseam is less than or equal to 32" you're set with another affordable option when it comes to slimmer chinos (The SF Tapered Khaki or The Wader). If your legs happen to require a longer inseam, well, you're shit outta luck on the Dockers front. It's a strange truncating of the slim chino wearing demographic for sure, but hopefully future releases will take care of this problem.
