Corduroy is the
season’s coziest fabric

There are two kinds of people when it comes to corduroy: Those who love it or those who fear it. Corduroy has a distinctive texture and dates all the way back to England in the 18th century. If you're on the fence, we are here to help you embrace this functional and stylish textile. And there's no better time to embrace the wale.

As daylight saving time is rapidly approaching, it's time to think of more substantial fabrics, and corduroy is certainly in that category. Blazers, chore coats, shirts, pants and even hats—this fabric is not to be played with. The texture itself is rich enough; however, corduroy always comes in great seasonal colors, such as: navy, olive and amber, just to mention a few.

Don't be put off that your English professor wore corduroy, just admire that they could pull it off. And while the versatility of this fabric can be quite overwhelming, we're here to help. Style a relaxed corduroy jacket or tapered pant with your favorite chunky-knit sweater or even have a little fun and layer it with another academic staple ... a sweater vest. The choice is yours.
