Dockers K1 Khaki Chino’s Launch
Last Week Stuarts London had the pleasure of being invited to the launch of the new Dockers Selective Khaki K1. The Event had been held at The newly refurbished St Pancras Station/Hotel in Kings Cross. Back in the 1940s it was also the original destination of where servicemen were able to take shelter. Inside the hotel Hansom Hall was converted into part officers mess and part Army General’s private office. All around the great hall, one could handle original artifacts from WWII. For instance, if one flicked through the pages of a small Cobalt Blue diary to October 11, 1942, the entry simply read, “Off to Egypt to join my comrades” whilst taking a seat on an original chesterfield sofa.
Before we copy and paste all the info from our notes taken that night, let us add a few unwritten notes. The Khaki One (k1) prime focus is not just about chino’s with an expensive price tag, but equally they have been hand crafted to make them the best of the best. Dockers is a well known chino brand and usually the first that comes to mind when looking for a classic vintage chino. K1 takes the inspiration from WW2, when all men in the 1940s during the service times wore their Khaki Uniforms with pride.
