I picked up a pair of these Our Legacy cords a couple of weeks ago. They fit perfect.

Believe it or not, I have two wonderful pairs of "dress" corduroys, one from Zegna (wide wale) and one from Brioni (thin wale). They feel great, can be worn for "business casual" or even into work. Two similar shirts are warm, feel great, but are almost impossible to get in and out of overcoats.

Corduroy shrinks badly along the seams--which gives it a disheveled, puckered look. As with raw denim, corduroy must be bought one size too large in each dimension, which makes any purchase a guessing game. To get any wear out of a pair of cords, it must be worn several times between washings. Not too agreeable.

That's why corduroy is a fad cloth. It goes perfectly with today's too-tight fad (designed to exploit the youthful ignorance of Gen Y).

Corduroy was almost totally absent, and now it's everywhere. Get 'em while they last.

What.

Anyways, I have the magenta corduroy Gitman Vintage shirt from Context and the MJK cord shirt. Love them both. Also have a coat that is lined in this black cord fabric...absolutely love it. Very warm.

I'm very fond of my Levis 5-pocket cords. They're great fall through spring. I also have a nice Polo by RL hunters sport coat in a wide wale cord that works very well in winter as an outerwear kind of jacket. I'd like to pick up a slim-fitting cord sport coat some day but haven't found one yet that I really like.

Corduroy is good. At the same time, I reserve it for the "very casual" category. I'd never buy cord trousers or anything ostensibly dressy in corduroy. That use of cord always has seemed wrong to me.

Anyone know if this is the same for moleskin? I believe they are similar material w/o the wales. I liked the Epaulet moleskin trousers so much that i picked up S&H 'jean cut' moleskin pants in 32 & 34, but need to decide which to keep. Does it stretch much, shrink much, etc

$$$, but number nine do slim cords in some interesting colors (i like the burgundy ones).

not much of a fan of corduroy when done in those (more traditional) murky olive/brown/beige tones.

I'll stop by Levis next time and check how I should size on 511 to get the fit I want. Is it ok to stack on corduroys?
