The Dockers "men of style" video advertising campaign is an all-boys club no more. Credit for cracking the khaki ceiling goes to Los Angeles-based author -- and authority on all things tomboy -- Lizzie Garrett Mettler.
The brand's just-released first-ever "women of style" video (see below) shows the author of "Tomboy Style: Beyond the Boundaries of Fashion" sitting on her couch, digging through her closet and walking her dog while wearing a black, button-front shirt and black-colored khakis and talking about her affinity for wearing the pants.
"I went to boarding school for high school and we couldn't wear denim, so I basically wore khakis for four years straight," Garrett Mettler explains, adding that the feeling of khakis is one "of going to a clambake or being at the beach, or on a boat or something like that."
Oh, and the style she's sporting in the video? That would be a pair of Dockers' Alpha khakis. We think that's particularly appropriate since we like to think of her as the alpha tomboy of the moment.
