    Wide wale corduroy

    Does anyone know where I can get quality, cotton corduroy fabric with a wale of 3 or less, please? I want to get some trousers made in the thickest wale available and I'm not having much luck through web searches. So far, all I can find is furnishing fabric in wale lower than 4. Thanks very much

    Corduroy Suit? What do you think?

     Well said, ClotheshorseHB! I agree that wearing a corduroy suit makes a statement, one of individuality, in my opinion, and I'm happy about that. I stand by my comments about tie, shirt, accessories needing to be plain, so as not to make the suit look crazy or detract from the suit itself...

    Corduroy and wales

    Cordoroy suit still in style?

    Great post, epa. My suit was bespoke and cost over 500 pounds so it's good quality and (still) a good fit. I save it for theatre, opera and special occasions so it's still in good condition and the trousers show little sign of departing from the jacket. I agree that a well-fitted suit makes a...
