Thanks! Funny you should mention as I was just about to post the photos. This fabric is Harrison's #5085 16oz. A few things I've noticed that potential buyers of corduroy fabric should know based on my experience:
1) It can shrink a decent amount after one starts wearing it just from body heat. It's a good idea to have your tailor steam it prior to having it made up to avoid this. I'm not sure if this is applicable to other cotton jacketing/suiting fabrics as well, but seems like it can't hurt.
2) It's best to get it made up looser than other suits especially around the elbows and knees. While I haven't seen it bag or fade yet, I can feel that the elbows and knees catch and stretch more than my other fabrics.
Just my $0.2.
