Dockers' new Wellthread line is, as its name suggests, a collection of well-made clothes that take into consideration the environmental impact of the garments along with the well-being of the workers who make them. Conceived in Levi Strauss' Eureka Innovation Lab in San Francisco, the collection focuses on staying power and environmental integrity. Clothes are produced with less water and electricity and the company is piloting a new approach with factories to support programs that will improve the lives of workers in factories around the world.

Not only are the pieces designed to leave a softer environmental and social footprint, they're classic staple items that are perennially in style. The Dockers design team scoured through the archives in order to model pieces that will easily outlast fads and trends. Details such as double-reinforced shoulders and patch pockets not only add to the overall aesthetics of each product, but also serve a purpose making them hardwearing and resilient. More than mere bells and whistles, these details make sure your money does not go to waste. Because you could likely have these pieces for a while.
