A fascinating collection of photos of people wearing khakis both now & in the past. Khakis have a definite place & history, but they also possess an unusual apparel transcendence. Khaki was derived from the yellow-saffron dust that inflected the naively white uniforms of the British colonials in India & shrewdly came to be their regulation color. In World War II, khaki emerged as a symbol of the American age. It was the apparel associated with victory, both in Europe & back to the Pacific. In the 1950s khaki went to college, & remained as an accommodating garment on campus & in cities. Khakis as a wardrobe element have an easy sense of versatility, associated with a comfortable, feel-good-non-style.
