Since Dockers is merely a business-casual offshoot of Levi’s, a brand as American as apple pie, it’s easy to assume that the brand’s line of office essentials is typically manufactured in the country, too. And while that hasn’t necessarily been the case all these years, the clothier has just unveiled its Made in USA capsule.
The collection features a trio of Dockers’ most popular pieces now fully cut-and-sewn in the heart of the states. Each garment is now cut and sewn in a Los Angeles-based factory called Keep It Here, using cotton sourced from Colorado and Vermont. The capsule features three staples: a t-shirt, a crewneck sweatshirt, and (obviously) chinos. In order, the boxy tee is available in a quartet of colors — white, black, navy, and a dusty shade of olive green labeled Nutria.
Next, the fall-ready sweatshirt is cut from plush French terry fabric. Last but not least, Dockers’ adorned Made in the USA Chino stays true to itself in shades of navy and Golden Khaki, delivered in a traditional relaxed taper fit that countless brands have tried to imitate. The brand claims that each of these pieces is an homage to its ‘80s-era roots, which is hard to deny given the old-school brand of streamlined chic this collection sends out. Dockers even tapped reigning NBA champion Jordan Poole to model for the campaign, proving everyone has a right to keep things simple.
Dockers’ Made in the USA Collection is available on its webshop starting from $40.
