Khaki Pants: A Timeless Piece on Fashion Runway - Thailand - Fashion - Dockers - Pants - Men's Wear

Right from the beginning, the journey of khaki pants is a legendary one. Their unique style and color not only complement other pieces for various occasions but also reflect a subtle fashion statement, making khaki pants one of the classic pieces around.

The birth of khaki dates back to 1850 when Lieutenant Harry Lumsden of the British Army wanted to dye the regimental serving uniforms from red to khaki or mud color or dust color to convey the troop’s patriotic love. “Khaki” refers to the dye color extracted from tea leaves and the British Army later adopted khaki for the regimental serving uniforms. During that time, the British Army was at the pinnacle of their fame for having colonized the Indian Peninsula and Africa, resulting in the “khaki” regimental serving uniform becoming widely popular amongst explorers and adventurers in those areas.

The popularity of khaki uniforms became widespread, particularly during the World War II period. The khaki uniforms worn by American soldiers were a new fashion signature and the color itself was recognized as a symbol of the “Hero”. Hollywood soon warmly welcomed the extraordinary khaki uniform during the post-war era, adored by leading celebrities and stylists such as Greta Garbo – Swedish actress; Humphrey Bogart –ranked no.1 screen actor in 100 years by the American Film Institute; Lauren Bacall – legendary actress from the Bogart era and Katherine Hepburn – Hollywood’s greatest actress.

Miss Atiporn Ekprasidthikul, Brand Manager of Dockers San Francisco, Diethelm Limited, distributor of leading menswear, provides some tips for choosing khaki pants to today’s gentlemen, “Khaki is a classic in itself and can perfectly complement every style. Ideal khaki pants are made from cotton with strong side seams and a well-fitting design from the hip and thigh down to the knee. Khaki is so versatile and can blend well with other pieces to reflect a subtle yet classic personality.
