Fall Staple

Corduroys

Once September hits, a pair of cords makes for an ideal alternative to your daily denim. The real question is whether you want to go with a pair of classic tailored trouser-cut, or a more casual five-pocket style that wears like a pair of jeans. It all depends on your personal style, but both are great way to inject some rich seasonal texture and color into your wardrobe and are particularly suited for when you start layering on cooler weather items, like sweaters to wooly socks. But keep in mind, when it comes to wales (the little ribs that make up that signature texture), too thick looks old fashioned, but too thin looks like velvet. Go for a medium-narrow pinwale like these here.
