Choose a Side


This is a sponsored post.  I was compensated and given free product to create this project, but the opinions in this post are 100% my own.

In Michigan, you HAVE to choose: University of Michigan or Michigan State.  Both Big Ten teams, both dominant in many sports.  It is more than likely that you have friends who have attended one or the other.  AND THERE MAY BE NO FENCE SITTING.  None of this but-I-just-love-my-state-and-want-everyone-to-do-well baloney.  Pick a side. 

Family turns against family when the teams meet up, and the the rivalry is passed down from parents to children.  My family is just about equally split.  There are those of us who cheer for State, and others who are wrong.  (See what I mean about the rivalry?)  Honestly though, I love that our state has TWO such great colleges to root for, and  I love the teasing that goes back and forth amongst our family.

My cousin Mike is a huge Michigan fan.  He and his son dress in head to toe U of M gear for the first football game of each year, and I am sure he never misses a game.  When I heard about Dockers new Game Day Khakis, I knew they were perfect for him.

The Dockers® brand has announced the US launch of its Game Day Khakis collection, a new line of khaki pants specific to 10 college partners:

  • Louisiana State University
  • University of Minnesota
  • Oregon State University
  • Texas A&M University
  • University of Georgia
  • University of Illinois
  • University of Kentucky
  • University of Michigan
  • University of Missouri
  • Washington State University.


One of my pet peeves is when people wear team gear to church.  These Game Day Khakis would allow die-hard fans to show their team colors (literally) to work or church without being “that” guy.  Blending the rich traditions of college sports with the versatility of Dockers® signature styles, Game Day Khakis give fans the ability to express team pride through their everyday wardrobe.


The Game Day Alpha Khaki has a modern slim and tapered fit, and the Game Day Classic Khaki offers a more classic silhouette. Each product is available in traditional British Khaki and the school’s official color for a bolder look.  Both of the U of M khakis are very neutral, but some of the other schools’ official colors are much bolder.

If you have a super fan or proud alumnus on your holiday list, look into these new Dockers khakis.  Dockers® Game Day Khakis will be available for men on, and at select Macys stores.
