The history of the Khaki pant is as rugged as the fiber it's made from. In fact the word Khaki is derived from the Persian word Khak meaning soil. This durable and versatile fabric was first adopted as a uniform by the "Corp of Guides" an Indian regiment serving in the British Army in the early 1800s. In fact the success of the unit and its unique uniform quickly spread through the British Empire and was eventually made the official British Military uniform.
As was the case with the British Army, the Khaki also became a staple of the U.S. Military and during World War II, Williamson-Dickie MFG, Co. produced over 9 million Khaki uniforms for U.S. Service men. This strong relationship with servicemen and workers alike ensured the Dickies KHAKI trouser would have a home after the war in the oil fields of Texas and the Middle East, as well as the office and the factories of U.S. Industries.
