Q: Remember when docksiders were cool? My husband wants to know if they still are. Some fashions can make it several decades, don't you think?
— Nancy


A: Your husband is navigating some tricky waters here, ma'am. "Nautical" is (was) a trend for 2007, and retro can be a smashing success, but this footwear selection can go down as fast as the Titanic if made with the wrong pant and shirt pairings. Hard to starboard! Dockers® pleated khakis dead ahead!
