JKISSI : Specific textiles and materials are sometimes deemed more acceptable to wear in certain seasons. The durable textile corduroy is one of my favorites by far compared to other materials. Corduroy is made up of twisted woven fibers aligned in a parallel pattern. I can even admit that I went as far as wearing corduroy pants rolled up during this summer just to fulfill my pre-fall corduroy crave. The comfortable and soft fabric believed to be first produced in England shares a similar preppy connotation as madras, the previous fabric that we touched on. The only obvious difference apart from texture is that madras is much more appropriate in warmer climates. For a long time corduroy was just known to be used on pants, but now it’s being used on everything from blazers to hats as the perfect fall/winter fabric.
Fit Description – The woolrich jacket was purchased on my usual thrifting sprees. It still holds up as a great wool jacket could definitely keep you warm on fall/winter days. I have been a fan of plaids and black/red is a color palette that always compliment each other nicely. The uniqlo corduroys fit great and quality seems like it would hold up for a good amount of time. The new black beads I have are definitely my favorite right now, with a combination of different finishes such as matte and glossy.
I was forced to dig in our archives for one of my favorite post to date. It seemed my nephew was already on his way as far as having a great corduroy piece to play around with. To purchase a similar blazer the good people at J.crew released a perfect substitute to go with this fall and winter. Corduroy provides the perfect versatility that can be worn in a more casual setting to even a more formal setting. The rich fabric is now produced by many designers and retailers to now include a more slimmer cut from previous designs. I was ultimately going to pass on doing a list of where to purchase different cords, but I felt it would eventually become beneficial to everyone including myself.
(The best deal to go with if you are looking for a great sportscoat concerning price point / quality)
