True Story ... Alpha Khaki Skinnys took to the water; New Lifeguard Recruit gets the job! I've seen other lifeguard posts here and wanted to pass this on to you. My pool has been recruiting summer lifeguards. You know the drill -- look professional, swim test, etc. So a new recruit shows for his interview... nice polo shirt, Alpha Khaki Skinny Chinos and deck shoes. Great for the interview and then some. Our supervisor's office is in the main pool building at the deep ens of the pool. I was there for this. She says to the kid, 'there a drowning in the pool; what are you going to do?' Immediately, the recruit races to the pool, tears off his shirt and kicks off his shoes and dives in. At the bottom of the pool is the rescue dummy, so he dives down and retrieves it as in a real rescue. Our Super watches the whole thing and tells him, 'give me 10 laps.' He swam it with ease. Done, he swim over to the ladder, exits the water and does a perfect foot first entry and swims the length of the pool UNDER WATER. To be clear, he swam the whole test in his Alpha Skinny Khakis! Dude! Swam strong and fast, too. Our Supervisor, absolutely impressed, says, 'you got the job'. The new 'guard climbs out of the water and says when do I start? 'Now' was the reply. And one of our guards handed him a whistle and rescue tube. He says 'do I need to change into reds?' And the Super says "as you are!' In fact, wear your skins every day!" With this, he took to the stand, looking confidant and strong in Dockers Alpha Skinnys. Motto: this 19 year old guy lands a lifeguard job because he responded quickly, knew what to do, and had the smarts to wear Alpha Skinnys to look professional and swim strong. April 22, 2014
word bro Perfect fit, looks exactly like the picture, the best fitting pair of pants I've ever owned, please add more colors, thanks! March 26, 2014
Fool me once... Ordered the same pair 2 times now but labeled entirely different pants. The chino skinny taper alpha khakis are EXTREMELY similar to the british khaki original slims, with the addition of a little stretch. Similar color, similar fit. Very disappointed. This has happened before when "dockers khaki" was renamed "british khaki". Would really like to have these in the actual chino color pictured above, or just a purchase through the Dockers website where i get the color I was expecting. January 28, 2014
Skinny Chinos are bred to Swim and Dive! I am a lifeguard at a pool complex. Last week I wrote a review for Dockers Alpha ? Forged Iron. I?ve bought two pair since and this review is for the Skinny Chino. We wear khakis and a polo shirt for deck duty to look professional. But, there many times when we are in the water, with no time to ?suit-up?, so I?ll ditch the shirt and dive for a rescue. These khakis were made to swim! They shrink to fit, are low rise, and tapered for a perfect fit over my dive boots and fins. The slim fit molds to your body like a second skin in the pool and they swim like a barracuda. I was on a rescue can in the deep end today for 9 hours of water time. Some people say that they shrink? YES! What a great fit! I wear a competition Speedo underneath so my Chino Khakis can draw-up for good jock support. They have just enough stretch ? but still fit snug for pike dives and underwater swims. The knees become articulated and they stretch out a little in length from the water. They fit just tight enough to return energy to you. Water is their natural environment. On cool days, I add a lycra rash guard top. But, today, wore just my Chinos. Awesome!! I?ve only been out of the water no for a half hour, and am still stoked with energy. Tonight we have a staff party. Don?t be surprised if I go off the high dive yelling ?CHINO? just as I dive clean into 18 feet of water! After swim it?s the huge hot tub for more shrinking and molding to fit. If anyone wonders how to break these in, its the same as Levis 510 or 511 Jeans. Get Wet! And let ?em dry on. Dive deep; swim hard! Be safe, always. Oh ? and they LOOK GREAT! December 28, 2013
Alpha Khaki Shrink to Fit, Swim and Dive - Your Second Skin! Excellent - red! Like my other 'reds' - lifeguard trunks. When I saw these, I got a pair and swam all weekend. They are like their brothers (the other A.K. Skins) - mold to your body, go everywhere, take to water like they were bred to be swimmer, diver, lifeguard skins. Read my other reviews ... the attributes of Alpha Khaki Skins are too many to repeat here. I am a lifeguard on call 24/7 and work at a major pool complex. I also free lance as a guard for hire at corporate functions. When on the pool deck, we like to look professional - skins and polo or even a sport coat. But when duty calls for an assist or save, I ditch the shirt or coat and dive/swim to the rescue in my Alpha Khaki Skins. These are the best combination of go-every where jeans and the slightly more cool look of khakis. People notice appearance, but we strive for function - dependable, rugged, some stretch and shrink to fit second skin for swimming and diving rescues. They shrink to low rise, snug/tight everywhere with good jock support -- great swim fit - and great look! These look awesome when they dry-on. You can LIVE in Alpha Khakis. Soon it will be summer and where ever you are, you'll be in the swim in Alpha Khakis. If you want to break your Alpha Khakis in properly, take to the water. You and your skins will benefit from the workout. Be safe, swim hard! February 3, 2014
AWESOME SKINS! My Light Blue Alpha Khaki are bleached and shrink to fit. This is my 4th review ? this time for Light Blue. Wow! You can get addicted to Alpha Khakis. Today our pool was closed for in-service. So besides staff meeting and cleaning, we had it all to ourselves. We swam, dove, cleaned and scuba for over 10 hours. This pair of Alpha Khaki are similar to the Chinos ? with thick material and rugged construction. They took about 4 hours of water time to break in. Now they are Skins and will retain their great fit and shape ? which is molded perfectly to me. This is why I have specific pairs of skins that are reserved for swimming and lifeguarding. Here is what lifeguards do to break in jeans and khakis ? Swim until they start to shrink and draw up. Then emerge from the pool and immediately do squats to ring the water out, quickly adjust (guys will know what I mean ? this is for fit and to prevent injury). And then dive into deep water and swim down and do flip turns before any air gets into your khakis. When you first dive back in they will be absolutely SKIN TIGHT. Surface and repeat. Dive-in clean (no splash) and do laps and more flip turns ? Now You have SKINS ? perfect fitting, molded to your body, shrink to fit and awesome. The more you repeat this, the better their fit. Mine became tighter, longer, articulated in the knees and lower in the rise ? mainly from flip turns and pike dives and to form fit for good athletic support. Swim shirtless, so the water flowing over your body forces your skins tighter ? like a good wetsuit. I use fins and swim free-style or back stroke to be streamlined in the water. As they dry, they will warm to your body and loosen about a 1/4 inch - just enough to allow freedom of movement and a good athletic fit. Then just hang them to dry when you get home. They will retain this fit. Alphas are already designed to take you everywhere. For me, they have all the swim-ready aspects that I like -> slim tapered shrink to fit, low rise for dives and flip turns and overall a tight swim-fit. You can LIVE in these khakis. If you don't get to swim, when its time to wash them, take them into the shower, and then let them dry on or hang to dry. Don't use the washer or dryer! They will be your second skin to swim, hike, dive, bike, skate, sleep, go out on a hot date! Or add a sportcoat for the office or class. These are a great buy. This is why I own several pair... and why all my skins swim! DIVE DEEP AND BE SAFE. January 2, 2014
Guys, Get Your Alpha Khaki Skinny On and Dive In - When You Wear Skins, You Own the Water! Dockers Alpha Skinny, Reflecting Pond has the same great fit as the Forged Iron and Skinny Chino that I've reviewed. I am a lifeguard at a major pool complex and we need to look professional on deck, so we wear khakis and a polo. But, we have to be response-ready when an emergency occurs in the water. We observe things that our patrons won't see, and need to be able to react instantly. On the job, we refer to Alpha Khaki Skinny as 'Skins' because that's the name also for Levis when used for scuba diving and swimming. We swim hard and each day is a workout. Alpha Khaki Skins are MADE to be in water. They shrink to a tight and comfortable fit, draw up for good jock support, are low rise for great pike dives and flip turns, because they are slim tapered, they fly through the water. We train in Skins because it's a better workout. On most days I am in the water for 8 - 9 hours. My Skins are rugged, retain their fit in water and give you an energy boost! They remain snug at the waist and fit they are made for YOU with just enough stretch for intense uw swim. Alpha Khaki Skins transition from the water to dry land in an instant. Just throw on a shirt and go out and let 'em dry-on. Then when you want to swim again, you're prepared. I'll scuba and lifeguard in Skins all summer. You don't have skins on - they have you and become such a part of your body that you are inseparable. They make you feel prepared and protected against the elements and you take risks in rescuing that you might not otherwise. My deepest rescue ever was 60 feet under water and I was wearing Skins. Get my drift? Alphas are where jeans meet khakis - and take you everywhere you want to go - like 4 wheel drive trucks, climb, swim, dive. I like to think that the embroidered anchor and Reflecting Pond name are a hint. So, guys, get your Skins On and Dive In! Be Safe In The Water. December 31, 2013
Forged Iron Swim Like a Fish! I am a guard at a pool complex - and we wear khakis and a polo shirt for deck duty. Starting last week, we've been slammed with school out, and I've taken to the water several times to assist and save, and now I am in the water every day to guard the deep end. Alpha are awesome swimmer khakis. The slim fit molds to your body like a second skin in the pool and they swim like a barracuda. Because I am on duty, I let mine dry on. What a great fit!. These are versatile and go anywhere. I wear mine with a lycra rash guard top to swim everyday. In water, Alpha shrink tight and draw-up for good athletic support and prevent muscle vibration. Just out of the pool, they look like diveskins. Guys note: I get approving looks from women. And these are great on a date, if you know what I mean! Dive deep; swim hard! December 26, 2013
