    When the temp gets below 50F, that's when I sport the chords. Always casual with some type of heavy cotton shirt. Jacket when it's really cold.
    I also wait until the weather turns cool before wearing my cords. I pair them with an oxford shirt and sweater or casual jacket.

    I start wearing them when the leaves begin to change, and wear them until Easter. Usually with an OCBD and a sweater. Occasionally with an odd jacket, usually tweed. My cords are all very Orvis-ish though.

    I don't wear cords. The thought of them reminds me of when I was 4 years old and my mom would dress me in brown cords. I wasn't particularly fond of them. Plus the only people I see wearing cords now are old men.

    I love wide-wale corduroy trousers in winter.
    I have a couple of pairs, in a chestnut colour and in navy.
    I wear them with an odd jacket (usually cashmere in either a donegal tweed or herringbone weave), with micro-check shirts, ideally worn with a knit or woollen tie, and typically either my suede, captoe Tramezza or a pair of brown, wingtip boots by Loake.

    I voted yes, even if I haven't worn corduroy pants for a while. I will once I get a pair that fits again...

    I must say I vastly more often wear a corduroy jacket, though. Corduroy SC with jeans? That would be me.

    Probably not. It sounds like the corduroy version of the Canadian tuxedo.
