Khakis

Dockers Alpha Khaki Slim 1 Year ($78)

An everlasting staple in menswear, everyone owns a pair of khakis. Bet you didn’t know that Sir Harry Lumsden was the originator of them, did you? Basically, in 1846, this dude decided to dye his British Indian corps’ traditionally white-clothed garb with mulberry juice. This gave off a yellowish drab shade, appropriately named “khaki”, derived from the Persian word “dust”. He wanted them well-dressed, but not too clean, and you can’t hate on a leader who wants you to look good while maiming and pillaging villages, can you?
