Is corduroy back in vogue? - Page 2

post #16 of 33
Have two pairs of thin wale cords, blue from Trovata and brown from Nudie that are slim. Wear them all the time. Can't see going with wide wale right now though, doesn't look right on me.

corduroy is just a material, if you have a garment that fits well and happens to be made out of it, then I don't see why it wouldn't work. The pieces I personally own are the "corduroy jeans" by uniqlo, usually sold only the F/W. To be honest they have much better fades than the few pairs of jeans I own. Mainly because I wore them 90% of the time when I go to school and sit in lectures for 4-6 hours as they were more comfortable. My cord jeans look nothing like the cord slacks that Bobo is wearing stylewise, although that works well for him. There's nothing inherently retro IMO about corduroy, even though it was made popular in the 70's, it has been selling all along and has been modernized for the most part. If you were wearing a pair of bell-bottom cords that hugged your ass, I can see why your friends though you were retro, but I am sure that you weren't and that your friends just aren't as knowledgeable about clothing as others.

Corduroy is great, but not for summer.

I don't mind it for pants or jackets, but its gotta be thin wale - used to rock really thick cords in high school, and its not a fashion period of my life I plan on revisiting.

Cords still remind me of the stoner bunouts in college who all seemed to wear giant disgusting thrift corduroy. More often then not their couches would also be made out of corduroy.

I have two pairs of jcrew cords.

One is a thick wale trouser cut in brown. It fits kind of baggy and the fabric is pretty heavy.

The other is a 5 pocket jeans cut (vintage or something like that) in an olive green with thin wale. It fits slim and the fabric is light.

I wore the brown ones for a little while...until my mom sent me the olive ones (I think they were from marshalls/tjmaxx as the size tags dont match...in one place they say 34x32 and in another 32x34..this has prevented me from ordering more online without trying on since I dont know what size I have).

Now the brown ones don't really get touched but I love wearing the olive ones.

What do you guys think of corduroy suits? Thinking about getting a slim one in dark brown or black.

Something like this image below. But please disregard the fact that he's clutching silk, wearing sunglasses inside, possibly wearing purple shoes, and generally looking like an ass.



And WTF - why is he standing on the silk!

I'm not really feeling corduroy, but I guess it all depends on fit.

This guy looks like he's making it work.

I like wearing my Levis straight cords occasionally. Usually too warm in spring and summer to wear them much though. Good for fall and winter.

Not that I could rock them appropriately, but if they're good enough for him. . .

I have a cord suit as well, although I only wear the blazer. I may get the pants tapered in the future so I can wear that separate as well...
