Where the runway meets the street

Last January, the fashion circuit foreshadowed the return of corduroy. That’s right, the fabric associated with your college professor’s dusty blazers, or your grandpa’s favorite trousers, could well be your next cop.

Vetements and Supreme have latched onto the ribbed fabric, giving it a fresh stamp of approval. Take Supreme’s much-hyped corduroy zip shirt or Vetements’ darted knee corduroy trousers. The ever-fashionable A$AP Nast is a fan and incorporated the fabric into his Converse collab. Depending on whether it’s a suit or jacket, a backpack, or even a pair of Converse shoes, corduroy can be sporty, preppy or even edgy.

So if you’re tired of wearing denim or khaki, go cord. Whether it’s trousers, a professorial-looking blazer, Western-style button-down, or a full-blown suit, corduroy could be the new sartorial choice for the fall. Below we’ve put together a list of our favorite pieces to cop now.
