Dark brown cord jacket is cool to me but dark brown cord suit is not.

I tried the cord suit...in cream, 3 piece. Color didn't suit me, I'll keep looking but I don't think it'll be a commissioned piece.

I just bought a 2nd-hand dark-brown Canali cord suit of eBay. I love it. Unfortunately the previous tailor hacked the pants so they are slightly too short (i.e. they barely break). Some of you would see this as a plus! However it's not my personal preference. However it's a great casual suit. Very comfortable.

I think a cord suit is wonderful. Dark brown doesn't bother me. I can see it now with a blue OCBD, a nice scarf and suede shoes or boots. It is such a comfortable material and ideal for casual dress.

I took one on a month long vacation to Paris and Rome during December and wore it all the time.

Zegna's CashCo is really, really nice and has beautiful rich colors

maybe the tailors on SF can comment about the durability and quality of the fabric (it has a great hand)

Borrelli had a CashCo gunmetal gray sportcoat with brown leather patches under the elbows last year that was made of it and it was spectacular

I'm seriously thinking of having Chan do a matching sportcoat in it

I have a couple of cashco jackets. One darker green one rust. For the autumn/winter make me happy.

My understanding was that, back in the day, the wale in the pants ran horizontally, not vertically. My bother had a pair of cords like this (bought in the last decade, manufacturer unknown).

Can anyone confirm this?

voxsartoria: Thanks for the link - I think that the Rust corduroy is calling to be made into a 3 piece suit, as well... It's a fabulous colour and would grab the light and shade perfectly! I'm with pocketsquareguy - Both on the thinking that a cord suit is wonderful and not being concerned by the idea of a dark brown suit although as my current cord suit is dark green, I think a brighter colour for the next one is calling... If not rust (see above), then possibly Corn (in voxsartoria's link). NewYorkRanger: I don't think I would go for cream or white - Far too easy to get grubby in my humble opinion. Doxe: I am not sure about ribs originally running horizontally but back in the 80's I had a pair of square-cut rib corduroy jeans and I wore them until they fell off me! Best wishes fellow-posters from a forum virgin! Thanks razl! LOL

How would leather buttons look on a mid/dark brown corduroy SC ?

Tan corduroy suits are just beautiful..

I bought one 15 years ago and it was superb.
