    Virtually anything. My brown cords are my most versatile pair of casual pants (jeans excluded).

    I have this outfit in mind that I will put together some day:

    Chocolate brown cords, cream cashmere V-neck sweater from RLPurple Lable & chocolate suede laceups.

    This YSL overly accessorized (well, luxury brands make a living out of scarves, luggages, gloves ...etc) model seem to wear a chocolate velvet pants, or is it corduroy ?

    cord, I tried them on in the store. I think they are a silk-cotton blend. very nice. Thin wale though, I know people don't like that.

    I like the thin-waled corduroy. I had a pair by Bernard Zins that I wore out.

    Anyone got ideas on what would go with a pair of "moss" green medium wale cords??

    Ah... right. The shiny fabric must have been one of those luxurious silk/cotton blend. YSL used to do them with a cotton/cashmere blend as well...
    I like thin wale better as well. Bigger wales have always been associated to old people's corduroy for me.

    Anyway, how much were they in the store ?

    I have a pair of brown cords. One of the most comofrtable and well-fitting pairs of pants I own. You could wear them with a lot of things -- light- or medium-blue, light green, white, tan or yellow (if that's you) sport shirts, tan or medium-blue sweaters. Definitely dark brown shoes.

    Definitely cultural. I wasn't too sure about thin wale, but after seeing my husband summer cords, I'm sold. I like both, really, it depends on the interpretation.

    Le velour à grosses côtes, ce sont les pantalons de mon père, ou ceux que je portais quand j'avais six ans. En effet, c'est très culturel [​IMG] Luc
