Hi all, this is my first post though I have been reading everyone elses great chats, they are really a help.
My office dress code is casual and I have been thinking about acquiring a few pair of dress Khaki's.
Sounds as if this forum thinks little of Bill's, I have owned a few pair years ago and loved the material but not crazy about the high waist.
I am mid 40's 5'10" 170. -
Can you recommend some great dress khaki's, what of the Dockers K1's.
Thanks - Rick

I have a pair of the BB Country Club twills. They have a nicer finish than the Bills twill and a bit shorter rise. I do like the Bills in the chamois cloth to wear to the office on casual days.

Thanks, I am not into the tapered and prefer straight. Maybe I will try the Dockers.

Bills are awesome. Love the high waist or get the hell out.

Have had good luck with J. Crew. They have a bunch of fits, so best to go to a store and try on several till you find what works.

I don't know. Maybe it is because I was forced to wear them in several blue collar jobs. The words "dress" and "khaki" are oxymoronic. Get the pair that you like. I am sure they will look fine.
