New Dockers ain't like the old cotton. Fit is good.
on February 17, 2018
My Dockers wardrobe from the early 90's is finally beyond hope. In the early 90's I purchased a few dozen pair of Dockers pleated pants, all cotton, and have been wearing them for now nearly 25 years. The vast majority have ragged bottoms, thighs have worn through, wallet has worn holes in the back pocket...you know the drill. All old Dockers had buttons at the waist.
Now the new Dockers. Cotton/polyester blend, the relaxed fit are almost the fix from the 1990's pants, but not quite. I had a few here and there that had clips, no buttons, other had clips and buttons, and these latest have buttons only at the waist. I think there was a public outcry about buttons, so they went back to buttons. Material is kinda shiny, silky, a bit slippery compared to all cotton. Cloth is definitely thinner than the old days. I doubt these will last as long as my old ones.
I have washed these at least 10 times, ironed, and so far, they still look good. The still take a crease, and the crease has not turned into that obvious white line down the front of you leg (old cotton always did this...annoyed me).
So while they are not the good old cotton variety that we grew up with, times are a changing, so have to adapt. So far so good.
Fit is as expected...same as sizes from 90's . 90's dockers and 2017 dockers fit in the waist the same, length is good, thighs are a bit smaller. Rump fits the same in the relaxed fit.
