Dress Khakis

From Fall 1986-Holiday 1987, the Cotton Twill Dress Khakis have double-front pleats and a distinctive zippered coin pocket. Thanks to Gary Pinkerton for the assist!

From the catalog: “Boys may be boys, but sooner or later they’ll be men. When that fateful day arrives, one’s khakis must pass muster with contacts and colleagues, as well as for casual wear. Our Dress Khakis are made from military-spec cotton drill and cut to cooperate with adult demands. Double front pleats facilitate middle management; interior linings smooth the seams and ease the fit. And for the especially successful entrepreneur who wants to remember his roots: there’s an extra coin pocket.”
