Michigan Men Now Able to Exude Even More Michigan Man

Dockers has a plan to get everybody to forget about the pleated plague we only recently emerged from as a nation: Game Day Khakis.


The company has partnered with 20 schools to sell khakis and shorts with the programs' ”official colors, logo and slogan.“ Nine of the participating schools, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Tennessee, call the SEC home because game day is business casual, y'all.

Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan represent the Big Ten in the collection.

Naturally, the Michigan selection caught our eye because the only way the product images could have topped the Michigan Man look they were going for is if they got Dan Dierdorf to wear his ascot.

100% cotton shorts with an embroidered Block M? Check. Faux yachtsman belt? Check. Boat shoes without socks? You're ready for the open sea – and a cell phone dead zone, which may not be helpful when Les Miles' agent is trying to reach you.

Machine washable, and slim taperedFEEL THE MICHIGAN.

They come in Hoke sizes too?

Yes, but you can't get the Slim Tapered style.  The pleats will pull out.

FitzBuck is clearly the winner.  Not even close.

I'm pretty sure the pleats will pull out on the normal pants. He may need the Extra Husky line.

If you jiggle your monitor, does that make a jiggly gif?

Yes, and his belt has whales on it.

They wont sell to the _ichigan _an; 1. They aren't denim, 2. They aren't cargo

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Of all the ways to burn UM fans, a jorts competition might rank dead last on the list...

But if they stock them in Wal-Marts they'll sell.


We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

So Michigan is located in Connecticut now?

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

$55 for a pair of shorts???  GOOD LAWD!

Including Florida in this was a terribly bad idea.  Everyone knows that jorts are the exclusive game-day attire of Gainesville.

I hope they're not contributing to the gene pool.

If you look closely, they added a triple layer of titanium to the rear end and bathing suit spot area to try and combat hurrican force winds caused by Brady Hoke's flatulence...
