Disclosure: I was provided a pair of Jack Donnelly Khakis to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Nothing says ‘Happy Father’s Day’ like a pair of high quality, American made, ultra comfortable khaki pants, am I right? Meet Jack Donnelly Khakis, the brainchild of my #1 high school crush, Gregg Donnelly. Seriously, check out the picture. I mean…yowzah! But I digress. Since our high school days, Gregg has dedicated himself to staging ‘The Great Khaki Comeback’ by bringing great fitting, well-made khakis once again to the forefront of men’s fashion.
A staple of the male wardrobe, there’s more to khakis than meets the eye. By no means are all khakis created equal, and Jack Donnelly Khakis have the market cornered when it comes to style, fit, construction, quality and durability.
Handmade just a stone’s throw from the Jack Donnelly Headquarters in Atlanta, Ga, each pant is made with precision, attention to detail, and expert craftsmanship. And since khakis are so versatile, taking a fella from day to night (or from work to the golf course), why not treat your man to the very best?
Available in a variety of fits and colors, I guarantee that you will be able to find a pair of JD shorts or pants that your guy will love. I went with the JD Hybrids in the ‘British Khaki’ color for my husband. The Hybrid fit is slimmer in the thigh and hip than the Original fit, but not as slim as the Slim Fit pants from the knee down. When the pants arrived, I was very pleased with the look and feel of the twill material. It’s sturdy and durable, but also soft and, according to my husband, very, very comfortable. We found that the pants don’t wrinkle easily, and look fantastic when pressed. Jack Donnelly Khakis iron well and maintain a great tailored look even after multiple washings, so a trip to the dry cleaners isn’t necessary (unless you really love going to the dry cleaners). I should also mention that Jack Donnelly Khakis arrive unhemmed, so that you can achieve the absolute perfect length at home or at a tailor. As someone who knows her way around a sewing machine, I LOVE this feature of JDs. I’ve spent years adjusting the length of my husband’s pre-hemmed pants, and now I can get him the perfect length the first time – without having to pull out annoying existing hems. Hallelujah!
My husband loved his new Jack Donnelly khakis, and I’m certain yours will too. He found them to be comfortable, flattering and ultra-wearable. We both noticed that even after a day in the office, the pants looked just as crisp and as wrinkle-free as they did hot off the ironing board. I also found that they….well…make his butt look really, REALLY good. And what wife doesn’t want that for her husband? Happy Father’s Day to you too, Ladies!
