Corduroy is one timeless textile. The material has a past that stretches back 300 years and since then, it has enjoyed several spells of ribbed renaissance. From those carpet-brown pants of the ’70s to school blazers, cord has popped up in surprising places. Today, perhaps in less cringe-inducing forms, corduroy continues to occupy our wardrobes, not only in the legwear game but via head to toe apparel and accessories.
Durable not only in presence but build too, corduroy makes for a fitting outerwear fabric. Current highlight jackets in the long-lasting textile include this bargain piece from PacSun, which comes in a fall-ready burgundy at below $50. For a more dialed-back option, the navy corduroy jacket from British brand Universal Works is another must cop.
Ready to match the jacket you see above, the paint-splattered cord pants in military green by Saturdays NYC boast plenty of pockets (five to be exact) and are a choice that will stand the test of time. If you want to stay true to the cord’s ’70s legacy, Séfr’s iteration is probably the closest you’ll get.
