Dockers is launching an environmentally conscious capsule to celebrate the 10th anniversary of WATER

The first capsule launching today counts its signature Alpha Chinos and a range of premium summer staples including t-shirts, shirts, and hoodies. The Chinos also include an internal trim guide, to encourage wearers to give them a new lease of life as they age by easily cutting them shorts.
