Folks: I run a pants company named Cordarounds.com. Every Fall we auction off ridiuclous one-of-a-kind clothing to pay for our Christmas party. This year's auction is headlined by pants that are made of DaVincis last supper fabric. Jesus peeks his head out of the pockets as you walk. You can find this and other funny auctions today (ends tomorrow) by enterting Cordarounds into Ebay or clicking through from our site's blog:

My apologies for the shameless promotion. I'm just trying to get some interest going around today's auction.

Thanks for the heads up. I think that this post would have been more appropriate in the Streetwear forum

Leaveittotheexperts may be right, but I don't read streetwear, so anyway...

I should explain myself more fully. I dislike corduroy. I don't own any and don't wear it. This, I recognize, may be pure prejudice and bunkum, but I just have a hard time with the stuff. In my defense, I'll note that my youngest brother has several vintage brown (three-piece) corduroy suits and a corduroy overcoat with a fake-fur collar. So I count myself traumatized on the subject of corduroy.

What I like about cordarounds is the idea, which may exist entirely in my own head, that cordarounds represent a kind of ironic undermining of all things corduroy; a sort of post-modernist deconstruction of the very notion of corduroy-ness.

There, I've said it. I feel better now.

Sometimes corduroy pants are just corduroy pants.

My therapist says the same thing. I'm not sure I believe him.


And sometimes, corduroy pants have Jesus in the pocket!

Nothing, really. They're hardly different than regular cords, they just go in the other direction. That difference, it turns out, is enough to build a business on. We're still only two people, but it's a fun gig.

I started the company on a lark and only sell them online, and I'm blown away by how many people get into the site for the sake of the fake science, stories, etc., most of which is submitted by customers these days. We play on this with auctions like todays for Last Supper pants, Blingarounds, and the Silver Fox jacket.

Anyway, thanks for your feedback. I haven't checked out forums like this until today, and it's really interesting.

perhaps, but only a fraction as disturbing as the trousers themselves. They are engineered with the highest technology to annoy people at holiday parties.

Like Grimslade, I love Cordarounds. Unlike Grimslade, I actually own a pair and I'm so tempted to go for the pair up for auction (Tempted? Hmmm . . . perhaps a Eden motif is in order, but I digress . . .)

Leave not these pants for the great unwashed (literally) in the streetwear forum. These are highly engineered garments that appeal to the mind as well as the heart. Indeed, consider the following fact gleaned straight from the manufacturer's web site: The wind-cheating design of these horizontal cords actually reduces the drag coefficient by 16.24%!!! I can't even fathom what the Olympic medal counts would have looked like if the East Germans had gotten ahold of these babies. Combined with my streamlined cranium, I could be looking at a land speed record.

In short, buy them, love them, enjoy the little red tag.
