One of the most popular brands for men's clothing is Dockers pants. They're worn by white collar and blue collar workers. They can be worn for important business meetings or casual nights out on the town. The brand has been around for 30 years, but the development of the brand goes back much further. The development of khakis started out of a need from the Army, the Khakis were first sold in 1898. The US Army chose to use khakis to clothe soldiers in the Spanish-American War. Levi Strauss & Co. started selling khaki pants to the public in 1909. The slacks came in olive or tan options. This new fashion didn't become a trend until 1954, after World War II. Khakis were commonly worn by American soldiers in this war, too. The fashion continued to be popular when the soldiers returned home. Levi Strauss & Co. sent one of their merchandisers named Susan Kilgore overseas. While visiting Hong Kong, she found special khaki pants that she brought back to America. The pants were originally manufactured in Japan and were popular among people there. Levi Strauss & Co. used the idea to create a new brand and introduced Dockers in 1986. The pants were first largely sold at department store chains and were targeted to men. Eventually, they added a line for women, too. They've also expanded the line to include other items of clothing and accessories. Dockers continued to grow in popularity. In 1991, they were the center of an episode of Seinfeld where the characters coined the phrase "100% cotton Dockers—if they're not Dockers, they're not pants." This helped make Dockers a household name. There was also a commercial campaign with the slogan "Nice pants!" This campaign helped increase the sale of Dockers throughout the U.S. and in other countries. Men's Dockers pants continue to be a popular choice for people throughout the world. The brand is continually evolving to meet people's clothing needs and keep them looking great.
