Poor Quality, Poor Craftsmanship
on November 1, 2012
I'm ecstatic to find dress pants in my tall size, unfortunately this is the third pair of Dockers with which I've had issues.
I know the difference between Levis and Dockers, and try not to treat the latter like the former. But the fabric on two pairs of my Dockers gave out after just a few wearings: one at the kneecap, another on the back pocket where I keep my wallet. Both rendered them useless for work.
With this latest pair, the stitching on the left front pocket came undone (or the fabric behind it frayed, I'm not certain), leaving me with a tear that got progressively larger and larger. TRUST ME: I'm not someone who has so much money in his wallet or change in his pocket to make this kinda thing happen by itself!
My bad experiences (and an examination of the product) tells me they're using poor quality fabric and (at least in one case) cutting corners when it comes to craftsmanship.
I've had good luck with Dockers which made me think my first issues were a one-off. Guess I'll know better now?
