Steven Alan for Dockers: Fall 2010 Collaboration

  • Have you ever found yourself silently admiring your old college professor’s uncanny sense of style or even the way your own father wears his old khaki standbys? The appeal seems to lie in a particular lived-in quality of their garments: the necessary elbow patches to old jackets, the washed and worn quality to button-down oxfords, the casual fit of broken in twill chinos. An effortless style that is very much innate. Sometimes, we find style inspiration in places we least expect.  Last week we focused on how Levi’s jeans, a traditional piece of work wear attire for Western miners, evolved into must-have, versatile staples.

    Steven Alan’ s Fall 2010 collaboration with Dockers is based on this instinct.

    Just for this fall, Steven Alan works with the heritage company that has been a part of our American culture as simple casual work wear. Looking at the brand in the spirit of the early 60s and mid-70s, SA sought to reinvent their core values of comfort, casual fit, and durability for today’s modern man. Dockers classic khakis are modified with a more tapered silhouette throughout and are equipped with functional smart phone pockets. While the ties with button-down back tacks seem to be made for those who bike to work—limiting flyaways. Eyelet embroidered under arm vents are there to give extra breathing room.
    Very modern indeed, form and function perfectly streamlined.

    Only Available at Barney’s, Steven Alan Website, and Steven Alan Retail Stores

    I love this idea! The professor who seems to be so engrossed in his books but somehow has thrown together a scruffy yet adorable and attractive look has always been a favorite of mine (patched elbows!). LOVE the button-down tack- like a hidden little surprise!
