Dockers introduces new campaign for fall 2019, signed by FCB West

Ads, Creativity

Dockers launched its latest media campaign, “Ready for it”, that asks consumers to be ready for the next big thing, including obstacles and the unexpected. Featuring a smartly dressed, city-goer’s sprint through busy streets in a race to beat a parking meter, the spot highlights the stretch and comfort of Dockers Smart 360 Flex product innovations.

An extension of the Dockers global creative platform, Always On, this new campaign marks the latest evolution of the brand. Self-described as “down to earth, witty and unpretentious,” Dockers maintains their title as khaki category leader by keeping guys ready for everything.

Innovating for fabric technology and fit, Dockers has expanded beyond their roots in the workplace. Unexpected levels of product performance and recovery are what makes the brand a go-to. It’s been over 30 years since Dockers paved the way for the khaki category and defined Casual Friday. Today, the brand, like the modern workplace, has evolved far beyond the office. Dockers offers strong, smart product options for occasions where confidence and presentation matter.

We recognize the modernized style needs of today’s guys (…) It’s less about what to wear at the office and more about a total lifestyle choice. At work and beyond, we strive to understand all of the moments that matter. We are the brand that enables him to be his best self…confident and ready for whatever comes his way.

Lauren Johnson

Senior Director of Marketing Dockers

Concepted and produced by FCB, a creative agency based in San Francisco, the campaign was shot in Mexico City, where the hustle and bustle provided the ideal setting to show off the stretch and comfort of both the Alpha Icon Long Sleeve shirt and the tapered Alpha Chino – a complete Smart 360 Flex™ fit.

The Dockers brand has been the authority in khaki pants for more than 30 years. First introduced in 1986 in San Francisco, California, this American classic has been at the heart of the casual movement providing men with quality products for every occasion. The Dockers brand is a division of Levi Strauss & Co. and available worldwide in 60 countries, on six continents.
