Check out our in-depth corduroy guide, here: https://gentl.mn/corduroy-guide What is corduroy? It's also known as poor man's velvet because the fabric of velvet and corduroy is actually quite similar. The only difference is, there are twisted yarns that create this ribbed structure. Corduroy is a very soft yet durable fabric, and it is made out of cotton, either a hundred percent or a cotton blend, better qualities are a hundred percent cotton blend. Traditionally, it's popular for hunting apparel or winter apparel, hiking apparel, and anything related to cold weather. So now let's talk about the interesting history of corduroy. Corduroy is basically in the family of fustian fabrics, and it includes moleskins. Fustian dates back to the year 200, and it got its name from the Egyptian city of Fustat. The city had a vibrant marketplace and was known for its cotton exportation. Later on, it made its way to Europe, especially to France. At the court of the French king, it was actually an apparel that was given to the staff of the king for hunting. As far as the name corduroy goes, there are different theories. One is that it comes from Corde Du Roi which means as much as cloth of the king. Now, if you think about it, the king never actually wore it but just his staff, I have my doubts about this theory. Other people argue that it comes from Cour Du Roi which means as much as court of the king, I think this is more likely. Who can wear corduroy and how can you wear it? It's a modern thing that every gentleman can wear. I think it's a great idea to have at least one pair of corduroy pants in your wardrobe because they are soft, they are durable, they are warm and extremely comfortable. They also don't wrinkle a lot and come in a beautiful range of colors. When you start, I suggest you go with something in either brown or tan because they're very versatile and you can wear them with all kinds of sport coats which is an ideal companion to them. Alternatively, you can also get a corduroy suit which is a matching pair of jacket and pants. Now, while the look may remind you of 70's or 80's characters, the good thing about it is, you don't have to wear them at the same time. You can either dress wearing the pants with something else or just the jacket with a pair of chinos or even jeans.Of course, a proper cut will eliminate any 70's or 80's reference. That being said, corduroy doesn't drape as well as wool; it's thicker, but it gives a very special crinkly look, and you have to like that. Once you have the basic colors of either brown and tan, you can extend it to olive green or black. Personally, I also like burgundy and navy because they're versatile. When you look at corduroy, you can see the ribs have different sizes, and that's referred to as wale. The wale is defined as how many ribs you have per inch which is 2.54 cm. Fine wale corduroy will have as many as 16-18 ribs whereas a regular will have about 10-12 ribs. You can also find corduroy which is 6-8 ribs which is very wide ribbed and a very unique look. The lower the wale number, the thicker the corduroys will be. In terms of quality, you can find two major classes. One is the Genoa back; the other one is the tabby back. The Genoa back basically has the same twill structure on the front side and the back side.The less expensive version is the tabby back where you have a flat surface on the inside. How do you wear corduroy? Basically, it's a very three-dimensional fabric, and so you don't want to combine it with velvet because it's too close. Personally, I really like to combine it with tweed or wool. For example, the tweed jacket that I'm wearing here right now with the tie and the shirt would go perfectly with the blue or navy corduroy. It would pick up colors in my tie and in my jacket, and overall, have a very relaxed, positive, casual character. #corduroy #cords #notsponsored --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

This video is about How to wear corduroys. OK so corduroys. For some reason these have the reputation of being an old man's pant which I think is stupid. So I'm going to try and bring it down to a younger audience and show why cords are so sweet. Before we get into it hit that like button. Our first look consists of a navy and red striped T-shirt a blue and white plaid button-down a white fabric belt and some white converse. This outfit is comfy, playful and interesting. The patterns work together because they are so different in scale and density and it makes for a complex and interesting outfit. Outfit number two. Here I've got on my white T-shirt a blue crewneck sweater gray bomber jacket, a fabric belt and a pair of tan suede chukka boots. This outfit is super simple and easy to pull off but at the same time is totally fresh. Look 3. Here we've got on the dark green turtleneck a dark wash denim shirt The fabric belt in the same chukka boots. This outfit is very texturally interesting, with the cord, knit, denim suede and canvas. This gives the look lots of depth and interest. So that's about it go get a pair of cords if you don't have one. there a great pant for the winter and they'll make you stand out in a subtle but stylish way.

Corduroys gets some unjust hate from folks as "old fashion" or "something old people wear". Corduroys, however are a staple in men's style especially during cold weather months. They can both be stylish and functional while being affordable. Dubbed the "poor man's velvet" Corduroy has elevated its status in menswear from its humble beginnings. Caution: If you are getting a dark color corduroy like I did, keep a lint roller handy.
