Corduroy

Having made a solid comeback in recent years, corduroy is here to stay for autumn/winter ‘19 and has been selected for its seasonal appropriateness thanks to its natural warmth and durability. An alternative to heavyweight denim or wool blends, cord easily adds character to a selection of staple silhouettes such as button through shirts, jackets and casual trousers. Slowly shaking its association with dodgy 70’s suits and flared trousers after being selected for lightly tailored silhouettes from Carhartt, Dickies, Polar and Stan Ray for a progressively more refined look, corduroy updates mean you can continue wearing your favourite silhouettes throughout the colder months.

Chosen in both regular and jumble wale counts, rich colour tones such as rust, forest and aubergine have been chosen by Dickies for their Ivel Cord Shirt, Garrison Velvet Jacket and Cloverport Cord Work Trousers which all harness the brand’s workwear heritage and focus on staple silhouettes whilst enhancing the final look with a subtle sheen finish. Like minded Carhartt have balanced their darker hues with brighter pops of pink and cold blue with workwear influenced designs and matching headwear which pairs particularly

well with their patterned outerwear for a bold, layered look.

Core styes such as the Stan Ray Painter Pant and Gramicci Original G Pants have been reworked in corduroy to ensure they remain relevant whilst also tapping into an ethos that both brands share when it comes to durability and strength. Finer wale has been favoured and earthy tones of khaki, olive, black and charcoal tones promote versatility, with the same being said for Pop Trading Company’s brown Cord Cargo pants, complete with elasticated cuffs which offer a customisable fit.

Whilst there might not be as greater abundance of options in comparison to last year, the brands that have selected corduroy this season have opted for the fabric not only for its aesthetic, but also for its comfort and insulating properties that complement their own design beliefs. Applied also to footwear, the likes of Stepney Workers Club and Converse have gone for a wider wale for a more noticeable texture across simplistic uppers with minimal stitching that lets the material take centre stage.
