Stylishly Hold Their Shape
on November 14, 2012
(I recently realized that Dockers has brainwashed me and earned my loyalty, so take my review with a grain of salt. That said...) "I love Dockers' quality and style!" :)
The "Iron Free D2 Straight Fit Flat Front" khakis are superb! (Note: The "Iron Free" part is *key*!) I've bought numerous D2 khakis -- various colors, styles, and sizes. However, the "Iron Free" is the only one I've been impressed by so far. The "regular" Straight Fit Flat Fronts are significantly inferior.
I recently started a new job, and the position requires me to dress to various business styles (i.e. business casual, causal, smart casual, slightly more formal for events, etc...). These pants are really versatile and seem to fit well with all styles. The simplicity allows them to mesh with casual, but the crisp crease allows them to appear sharp for the more formal end of the spectrum. The fit is also great (and flattering). The fit is essential to more formal arrangements (since fit is half of what defines "formal), but the fit also lends to the pants actually being quite comfortable for the more casual environments.
Since I fly almost daily with my new position, I'm impressed every time I open my suitcase. The "Iron Free" aspect really lives up to its name. While no clothing material will ever be "perfect" (especially if you're picky, like me), but these pants challenge that idea to the max. The pants rarely need much treatment. 90% of the time, I just hang them in the hotel bathroom while I shower (a.k.a. steam the room). This removes most wrinkles or imperfections. Whenever I iron them (simply due to my OCD tendencies), they're soooo easy to iron! (And that's saying a lot, because I can't iron whatsoever!)
All-in-all, I highly recommend these pants. They're the product that got me start (and now hooked) on Dockers!
