100 Days of Ties: Day 57: I haven’t worn Dockers in maybe 15 years

Tie: Gitmn Bros. for Bonobos / Sweater: Lands' End Canvas / Shirt, Socks: J. Crew / Pants: Dockers Khaki Waders / Shoes: LL Bean Ranger Mocs / Witty Comment: Missing

I think it’s been since maybe grade school or a time I had to borrow a pair of pants from my father for church that I donned a pair of Dockers. But when I read about their khaki waders on Jeremiah’s blog I decided to give the brand that I until now attributed to that of which my mom would buy for me another go. The fit, the break, the color are all good. But what really got me, I s’pose was the fact that even if I wasn’t too keen on the pants when they came, the pricepoint of less than $50 (pre-tax, etc) made the purchase feel less like a commitment and more like a “Why the hell not?”

And you pair them waders with a Lands’ End / J. Crew / Modern Amusement / LL Bean kit? Tuesday, so far, is looking good, both physically and professionally. Boosh.

The progression of the submitted pictures has really been great to see. New faces, new poses, growing mustaches (which I cannot do), and continued support of the project. Fun to see. NYC is going to be fun come January. Who’s in?
