Dear Bargainista - #9

Connie from Toronto writes:
Hi Bargainista!
I thought you might be able to help us. My husband was quite devoted to the wrinkle-free/iron-free khakis from The Gap, but they no longer make them. Have you found any other easy-care khakis in your travels?

Thank you,

Hi Connie.
I did some “fishing” and here’s what I came up with to solve your husband’s dilemma:

Tilley Endurables has a whole line of men's wrinkle-free khakis and other pants.

Orvis is an established American company who sells wrinkle-free chinos.

Turns out Lee jeans also makes a pair. They’re sold on

Finally, just in case the above aren’t suitable, the ever-dependable Dockers also has their own version of sold on

Hope this helps. Let me know what you find.

Happy shopping,
Mich (from Chicago)

  1. I'll personally vouch for the Dockers khakis. They're the only brand I buy: comfortable, durable, and they look darn good too. I know it's a bit of a trek from Toronto, but the Levi's outlet in Niagara Falls has a whole section dedicated to the Dockers khakis, and the prices are pretty decent as well.

    Oh, and Eden, you caught me on a bad couple of weeks. I'm still working on it!

  2. Vasta, thanks for the tip!
