Olive-green corduroy suit – from Ettore de Cesare – Permanent Style
You know when you think you’re not part of a trend, and then see everyone wearing the same thing? As a clothing snob that likes to think he’s different to everyone else, it’s very annoying.
I had admired Michael Hill’s green-corduroy suit – and more importantly perhaps, the way he wore it – for several years.
So 18 months ago, while in Naples seeing Ettore de Cesare, I asked him to make me one.
I had been extremely impressed by the first jacket Ettore made for me (a navy hopsack) but a couple of the style things weren’t right, most obviously the length.
My fault, probably, but in the interests of this site I do like to see what a tailor will do as their default style, before trying to change it too much.
Then as soon as I received the suit, two months ago, I began to see green corduroy everywhere.
Trunk with De Bonne Facture has pieces in it; Drake’s with Capalbio has a collab jacket in it. It doesn’t help that corduroy itself is having a bit of a fashion moment, and this dark green is one of the three or four colours you’d make tailoring in.
Never mind. I was confident I hadn’t opted for cord out of a desire to be fashionable.
After all, I’d admired Mike’s for years, and the honey-coloured cord suits I have from Pirozzi in Naples and Anderson & Sheppard have been consistently worn and loved.
In fact that A&S one is six-years-old now – and the subject of one of my favourite photos from Pitti back in 2013, with Luca Rubinacci, eating a dripping, nut-encrusted ice cream.
I have also found corduroy to be very versatile in that time – as the best example of what I called a ‘three-way’ suit.
Such a suit, which can be worn as a separate jacket, separate trousers or all together, usually works best in casual materials, and cord is the best.
This green can certainly work in that regard. Indeed, I’ve already set aside some more to make a second pair of trousers.
The fit from Ettore was very good again. Unpadded shoulders that nonetheless sit very cleanly all the way along their length.
Nice suppression through the waist, with just a little extra room for corduroy (given it has no natural stretch). And the jacket 3cm longer than my first one.
The only thing I might change is having a slightly wider sleeve.
I’ve never quite understood why guys think a skinny sleeve looks more flattering or manly than a large one. It’s not going to make you look thin if you’re fat, or muscly if you’re skinny.
The slimness with my sleeve is marginal, however, and it does have the happy but unintended effect of adding extra wrinkles to the elbows.
This is what you want with corduroy. It looks best as it ages.
The cloth is 501281 from Scabal, 380g or 13.5oz in weight.
That’s relatively heavy for cord, but it doesn’t feel heavy at all. Certainly fine for everything but high summer in England.
The colour was the crucial thing though – that deep, muted olive-green. I looked through lots of other bunches trying to find tit in the right wale and without stretch.
The only other candidate I found was Dark Olive 304 from the T1 bunch at Brisbane Moss. But I marginally preferred to the colour of the Scabal.
I’ll wear this cord suit mostly with other matte, casual materials.
So suede shoes, knitted ties, button-down shirts. The refined geography teacher – elevated by the cut of the suit, the waist of the shoe and so on.
Here it is worn with my button-down shirt in the Lighter Denim fabric, a knitted-wool tie from Hermes that I like for its slightly unusual knit pattern, and a burnt-orange silk handkerchief from Ralph Lauren.
A grey tie here is quiet, and makes a nice supporting partner for stronger colours, like that orange. A navy tie looks great too, but is stronger and doesn’t provide the same support.
The burgundy socks from Bresciani I also find are a nice compliment to the green, although overall perhaps there is then a little too much colour going on.
Maybe green socks would have been better, unless I lost the handkerchief.
The suit bag is from Rubinacci and the umbrella Michel Heurtault.
The shoes are from Philippe Atienza in Paris – his new bespoke-made ready-to-wear line.
Given I don’t go to Paris often, this was a nice way to try Philippe’s shoes, and the fit is very good apart from a little too much fullness across the vamp.
I like the elongated, round-toed last. It has a definite French pointiness to it, but less pronounced than Berluti or Corthay.
The brass aglets on the end of the laces are made by Philippe himself, in a vintage machine he has in the atelier. More on that collection of machinery here.

Corduroy Guide – How To Wear It,What Cords To Buy & More
Often considered the poor man’s substitute for velvet, corduroy is actually a very wonderful fabric that is made from cotton which is woven to lie parallel to each other, so it forms individual cords that almost appear to be separate and attached. Soft and yet durable, it’s a variation of velvet that’s easy to maintain and clean and still keeps its shape relatively well. Made from cotton or a cotton blend, it’s very popular for hunting apparel, trousers, jackets, suits and other cool-weather attire due to its warmth. Today’s guide is all about this wonderful material and how you can use it in men’s apparel.
The History of Corduroy
In order to understand the history of corduroy, you must first understand its parent: Fustian. It is an umbrella term for thick cotton fabrics including moleskins and corduroys.
It was first woven in Norwich, England during the reign of Edward VI, and used for jackets in the 15 century. Originally dating back as far as 200 AD, it was initially woven in Fustat, a small city near Cairo, in Egypt. At the time, Fustat was a bustling marketplace and one that was known for its use of cotton and later its exportation of cotton throughout much of Europe.
Velvet is very similar to Corduroy
Fustian as Outdoor Apparel in the 19th Century
It was during the 18th century that London tailors began to adapt the textile as an option for outdoor apparel in the cooler climate. The goal was to create the perfect form of fustian that would dry quickly from the rain and provide warmth in the winter months. For hunters and gatherers, the new fabric was ideal as it was comfortable, provided protection from the elements, and offered them an easy, maintenance-free alternative to their previous clothing.

How Corduroy Got Its Name
In the past, silk used to be rather expensive and velvet was only made of silk, yet Corduroy is generally woven from cotton.
Cour du Roi
Some claim the origins of ‘Corduroy’ come from the French ‘Cour du Roi’ meaning ‘Court of the king’.
Of course, the king wore clothes made out of fine silk fabrics and so did the aristocrats at court. However, the King’s servants did not get silk but rather less expensive cotton hunting outfits. Corduroy is also woven like velvet, except the pile picks are bound by the warp, which creates the straight lines.
These are probably some of the reasons corduroy is also referred to as the velvet of the poor.

Corde du Roi
Some also claim the name was derived from the French “Corde du Roi” which means as much as ‘Cloth of the King’. Considering that cotton was not the fabric of kings, it seems less likely that this was in fact the origin of Corduroy.
Others think the word was derived from the English word cord and duroy was an adaptation of durable. Of course we will never know at what point in time Fustian was renamed Corduroy, but the first explanation seems more plausible.

Corduroy in the 20th Century
As formal wear took off throughout much of Victorian England, corduroy went from being the country gent’s textile of choice to the working-class fabric for uniforms.
During the beginning of the 20th century, it became popular among Parisian intellectuals for trousers and jackets.
By the 1930s it was also utilized for Alpine hiking clothing and by the 1960s The Beatles popularized it when they wore Corduroy suits.

The Beatles Saved The Corduroy Industry
Up until then, most corduroys were worn by students and school-boys, workers, and farmers, and as such the industry was in a constant decline. The Beatles made corduroy fashionable again. In 1965, the President of the Board of Trade even claimed that The Beatles “saved the British corduroy industry”.
In the U.S. corduroy became popular with Ivy League students in Princeton and Dartmouth in 1957, and it went on to become an Ivy Style wardrobe staple.
Throughout the seventies, eighties, and nineties Corduroy was still present but it had its ups and downs.
Today, corduroy suits or blazers are often associated with professors, who pair it with tweed, or people who are into the British Country Gentleman Style. Since velvet is almost exclusively made of cotton or cotton blends and not silk anymore, corduroy can no longer be considered to be inferior to velvet and so it is not a surprise to see that men sometimes prefer if over velvet. Corduroy has no doubt set itself apart as its own,unique textile for the modern gentleman.

What Corduroy Items Should You Buy? Pants, Suits and Maybe More
What’s unique about corduroy is that it tends to trend and go in and out of style in short bursts. Somehow, it never dies though, and just remains comatose for a brief time before re-emerging.
While corduroy upholstery on furniture was popular, it’s rare to find a sofa these days that’s not pre-owned in someone’s basement or a grandparent’s living room and covered with plastic. However, classic staples such as hunting jackets remain popular decade after decade because they keep you warm and last.
If your goal is to build a classic and timeless wardrobe, Corduroy an excellent addition for pants, jackets, vests and suits. A pair of pants should be a part of every modern gentleman’s fall-winter wardrobe, with the suit being the next upgrade once you have your basic suit needs covered. If you are into the outdoors, you definitely want to look into hunting jackets.
Because of its stiffness, corduroy works better off the rack than other garments; however, if you want the proper fit, there is no way around bespoke.
Vibrant corduroy jacket adds texture and dimension
The most versatile colors include brown, tan, olive, khaki, sand, black and navy. However, you can also find more vibrant colors such as red, burgundy mustard yellow, and bright green. Our advice is to purchase only colors you are comfortable wearing, disregarding the current fashion trends.
One of the latest trends is pigment-dyed corduroy in various colors that are both vibrant and dull. The dye is applied to the surface of the textile prior to it being cut and sewn. Over time, pigment-dyed color will fade, especially when washed, and eventually even the most vibrant of colors will appear vintage and soft.
If you do purchase vibrant corduroy clothing, it’s wise to dry-clean only and not wash it at home. If you have a suit, clean both items at the same time, because otherwise your pants may not look like your jacket.

Corduroy Details & Characteristic
Due to its outdoor heritage, corduroy jackets are usually on the casual side featuring center vents, patch pockets, and throat latches … but of course, you can also find them with side vents and flap pockets. While velvet is often used for smoking jackets and alternative dinner jackets, corduroy is usually used for blazers, suits, trousers and vests.
Because of its tight weave, it is rather warm as long as it remains dry. At the same time, it doesn’t drape as beautifully as heavy wool fabrics. So if you are prone to overheating, corduroy is probably not the best choice for you.
Medium Wale Corduroy
The Corduroy Wale
Corduroy is generally measured by what’s referred to as the ‘Wale’ of the cord, which is the number of ridges found in the item per inch. The term comes from the actual name of those ribs or cords that are called ‘Wales.’ The lower the wale number, the thicker the wales will be. The wale count is a rather large range and unlike other grades that often offer just a handful of choices, corduroy comes in everything from 1.5 all the way up to 21. However, in most cases the most desirable wale number is somewhere between 10 and 12.
Fine Wale Corduroy
Ideally, wider wale counts should be reserved for items below the waist, whereas a finer wale number can be chosen for items such as jackets and suits. Ultimately of course you pick what you like.
Tabby Back Corduroy
Genoa Back vs. Tabby Back
The backside of corduroy can either look and feel similar to the front with a twill back (Genoa Back) or it can have a plain back, which is known as Tabby Back. Higher quality corduroys are tightly woven and usually feature a Genoa Back although there are generally exceptions to the rule.

Corduroy Blazers & Sport Coats
Let’s say you buy a corduroy suit: you can also wear them them as separates with just the jackets or pants. In fact, you will greatly increase the opportunities of wearing corduroy when you wear either a jacket or pants. If you are still in the early days of building a wardrobe, it is probably wiser to invest in a corduroy jacket rather than a full suit because you can combine it more easily.
Vintage Corduroy can come in unusual colors such as gunmetal in very fine or wide wale cord. The jackets from the 50s and 60s can easily be worn today, while the styles from the 70s and 80s look quite dated. Therefore, stick with timeless shapes unless you are going to a Halloween party.
A casual fall outfit using corduroy for warmth and texture
Corduroy is one of those textiles that one tends to love or hate. For many, this love/hate relationship can be item specific.
Some men may love the idea of a corduroy jacket but despise the thought of wearing corduroy pants.
For others, corduroy is a simple yes or no to all items. In any case, corduroy has its stigma as a somewhat dated fabric and yet it is a great addition to any modern gentleman’s winter wardrobe, at least in doses. What are your thoughts on corduroy? Do you have an appreciation and respect for it?

How to Wear Corduroy in More Ways This Winter
By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Jan 9 2020
Trying to figure out how to wear corduroy in the cold weather months can feel confusing. I get it! Is it too cozy for work? Am I going to make that zhush-zhush-zhush sound all day? I’m here to tell you; don’t fret! Discovering all the ways to wear a corduroy blazer, corduroy trousers, and more will turbo boost your fall and winter wardrobe.
Let’s get this out of the way now:
Is corduroy in style?
Yes! Corduroy will never go out of style.
Apart from its warmth, the great thing about corduroy is that it looks good in so many different kinds of wardrobes. Just think. It’s at home in the closets of school teachers, beatniks, and even children’s book characters – what other cold weather material is such a style mainstay?
And really, what’s not to love about this fabric? It’s durable, soft to the touch, and super easy to wipe off any spills from lunch because of its tight weave.
What is corduroy?
What can we say about corduroy that it doesn’t already say about itself?
Sorry. Corduroy joke.
But truly, corduroy is the loudest and proudest textile in the non-jeans family. Its refusal to stay silent, whether you’re walking into a room wearing pants made of the material, or simply adjusting in your seat donned in a sport coat made from the stuff, corduroy will unapologetically announce its presence.
As a lover of loud jangly necklaces, I’m all for for stocking your closet with pieces that makes you feel a little like a one-man band. Moreover, I like that cords are comfortable, durable, and versatile..that last one being dependent on the texture of the material itself.
Should you be taking some kind of test on this later: corduroy’s vertical ribs are called wales (from the Anglo-Saxon walu, which means “to mark with stripes”). The more ribs per inch, the louder the noise gets when it all rubs together.
What kind of texture you go for will affect the formality of what you’re wearing – wales packed more tightly together will look good in a suit, and appear almost like velvet, whereas wales that are more loosely grouped will give off that more traditional, “English duke at his weekend country estate” vibe.
Here are all the ways you’ll find in this article on how to wear corduroy:
- how to wear a corduroy blazer
- how to wear a corduroy jacket
- how to wear a corduroy shirt
- how to wear a corduroy pants
- how to wear a corduroy suit
- how to wear a corduroy hat
Phew! Let’s begin, shall we?!
What to wear with a corduroy blazer
Channeling your inner college professor has never been so stylish (or cozy). Ensuring a corduroy blazer looks modern is as easy as locating your favorite chinos and adding a pop of color through a sweater or cardigan. Thin ribbed corduroy is ideal for nearly any professional setting, whether you’re running around campus or presenting at the office, especially in the cold days of fall and winter.
If you’re worried about looking too dated, keep your corduroy blazer to a slim fit and natural shoulder for a current take on a classic style. Ready for this style challenge? We’ll go ahead and calculate your grade now: A+.
SG Says: Doesn’t this look like an outfit for a spy masquerading as a college professor? I think it’s the boot. And the Archer-esque turtleneck. Keep your secret identity under wraps, and by “under wraps” I obviously mean under this corduroy blazer.
SG Says: Use one of the secondary colors in a plaid shirt to find the right color of chinos. Then, keep the rest of the outfit neutral.
SG Says: You can carry pastels through fall and into winter when they’re on thicker fabrics, like this sweater that looks cozy af.
SG Says: Channel your prep school days with all the classics separates in their go-t0 colors. Ooh, don’t forget to add a bit of shine and pattern with accessories.
SG Says: Want to dress your corduroy blazer down? No problem. Opt for a white tee with a bit of graphic detail, and choose complementary colors for the rest of the outfit.
Okay, a few last tips on styling a corduroy blazer:
- Avoid too thick of a corduroy when wearing corduroy to the office or more dressy events – a super-thick ribbing in your corduroy blazer generally makes the overall look feel more casual.
- Don’t be afraid to mix and match textures when wearing a corduroy blazer by pairing yours with a woven belt, chunky sweater, or knit tie.
- You can dress your corduroy blazer down by wearing it over a fine-gauge hoodie or lightweight henley.
- The most common issue with a well-loved corduroy blazer is showing wear in the elbows. The fix? Grab a retro-style jacket with elbow patches or have some sewn in to get the look and preserve your jacket. Here’s a DIY!

What to wear with corduroy trousers
Like sweaters for your legs, corduroy trousers are indeed a cold weather wardrobe essential.
SG Says: Everyone at SG HQ loves a good pair of corduroy trousers, like those from Todd Snyder above, for guys. They fit and feel like a modern pair of dress pants, or even just a really nice pair of chinos.
Wear yours with a crewneck sweater and chelsea boots or a nice lace-up boot for a comfortable-yet-elegant office or date outfit.
SG Says: Another corduroy trousers outfit, perfect for the office. Can’t go wrong with a patch pocket unconstrcuted sport coat like the one above (here’s one we like that’s similar from Bonobos).
What to wear with a corduroy shirt
A corduroy shirt, whether a thick work shirt or a full on shirt jacket (or “shacket”) is a great way to layer once the temperature starts dropping. In early fall, wear it as your outerwear. In the winter, wear it under your actual outerwear.
SG Says: Because why should your legs have all the fun? Outfit your torso in a corduroy shirt like this Everlane number above (which has unfortunately sold out!).
What to wear with corduroy pants
You can’t go wrong with a 5-pocket pair of corduroy pants this fall and winter. In a classic khaki hue, you’ll think you’re just wearing regular ol’ chinos, which is kind of the point. Some guys think cords are too “out there” for their personal style, but a pair that fits and feels like jeans will have you thinking otherwise.
SG Says: You don’t have to count out other bright colors or textures with the rest of your look when wearing bolder-colored corduroy pants – in fact, piling on more visually interesting pieces is encouraged.
Try wearing your cords with a chambray shirt and textured chukka boots for a look that’s eye-catching, but still casual.
Wear corduroy pants like jeans!
SG Says: Here’s what you need to know about 5-pocket pants; you’ll feel like you’re wearing jeans, even if you’re actually dressed up a bit more. Say, in twill, or the corduroy above (both from J.Crew). This is your entry-level corduroy pant situation. Very hard to mess up, I promise.
Dress them down with sneakers and a sport shirt, or add a little flair with boots and a sweater.
Wear colorful corduroy!
SG Says: Like I said, you can pretend your corduroy pants are just…regular pants by scooping up a pair in a standard hue like khaki or grey. But. BUT! You could also branch out with a pair in a rich jewel tone that is just so fall I can’t even stand it. Like what, exactly? Well, you could go with a burgundy like the Polo Ralph Lauren pair above. Greens are great. So are cords in the golden yellow (some might say mustard) hue that seems to be popping up everywhere this season (you can find my favorite sweaters in the color here).
The takeaway? If you’ve already got one pair of cords in a more traditional color, a new pair in a warm hue could be the perfect complement for your fall and winter wardrobe.
SG Says: Since you’re starting your outfit with an iconic corduroy pant, capitalize on texture with leather details like a vintage baseball cap and leather chukka boots. Don’t shy away from patterns in this look – instead, go the gingham route and layer a burgundy striped sweater to add even more visual depth.
What to wear with a corduroy jacket
SG Says: The key to this look? Simplicity. Jeans. A solid-colored tee. And a corduroy trucker jacket. Hard to f*ck it up, which is a good thing.

How to wear a corduroy suit

SG Says: Now, I admit this is an advanced style move. If you’ve already covered your suiting basics (namely, a charcoal and a navy suit), and you actually enjoy wearing suits, why not have some fun? A corduroy suit, whether you go for a festive red or green, or a more vibe-y brown, you’ll definitely stand out in a crowd.
How to wear corduroy shoes
SG Says: Don’t expect to wear them everyday, but a pair of fall-colored slip-ons in corduroy could make for a fun dose of somethin’ special in your cold weather outfit. Obviously dressier shoes are usually leather or suede, so this footwear won’t be formal. The look above would be perfect for a Saturday afternoon spent with your lady, or out at the bars with your buds.
Best colors for corduroy
Don’t limit yourself! Corduroy presents a great opportunity to add more brightness to the grey days of winter, so don’t shy away from brighter colors in your corduroy clothes. If there ever were a material made just for winter it would be corduroy, so don’t be afraid to mix it up with your color rotation.
For instance, a plush pair of corduroy pants in earth tones like grey or taupe would look awesome on you. So would a shirt jacket in a bolder color like mustard or burgundy. Either way, you’ll look equally cozy and classic.
When to stop wearing corduroy:
When it gets too warm outside!
Seriously, you can wear cords as soon as the leaves start changing color in the fall, and only (reluctantly!) tuck ’em away when the last snow has melted and flowers are starting to sprout in the spring.
The whole in-between time? Prime corduroy season.

Corduroy Suits, Trousers, & Other Garments
What Is Corduroy?
When men think of corduroy, they often think of pants they were forced to wear as school children along with turtleneck jerseys and Coke bottle glasses.
With this association, it’s no surprise that lots of men don’t take too kindly to corduroy, which is unfortunate. It happens to be a great cold-weather fabric whose ridges give it a lot of visual interest.
Corduroy is essentially a ridged form of velvet, which places it in the cotton category. A thicker material, it’s best suited to fall and winter wear, as it would be much too heavy for any warm weather applications. Furthermore, its appearance is quite casual and works best on country-inspired clothing.
The common claim as to the etymology of the word “corduroy” is that it’s an English corruption of the French phrase corde du roi, meaning “cord of the King.” This is actually false. The word is derived from the words cord and duroy, the latter of which was a coarse woolen made in 18th-century England.
In a nutshell, corduroy is a durable cloth that looks like numerous cords have been stitched together close to each other in parallel.
Historically, corduroy was utilized for British country clothing and achieved a great degree of popularity in the 1970’s.
What Is “Wale”?
No discussion of corduroy can be had without mentioning wale. The term “wale” refers to the size of each individual cord and can be further analyzed to refer to the number of ridges (cords) per inch on a given corduroy garment. The lower the wale number, the bigger the cords, and vice-versa.
The average wale is somewhere between 10 and 12. Wide wale corduroys are typically limited to very casual trousers, and finer wale cords are found on above-the-waist garments: sport coats, waistcoats, and shirts.
Different Types Of Corduroy
Not all cords are created equal. The most common types are listed below.
Named after Bedford, England, Bedford Cord is itself a misnomer: it’s not actually corduroy, but rather a durable fabric that resembles corduroy. It’s woven to have faint lengthwise ridges but lacks the weft yarns that make for true corduroy.
trousers made with this material are often referred to as “Bedford cords.”
Elephant cord refers to any corduroy with a very wide wale. Such fabric will typically be only used for trousers, but furniture may also be upholstered in such corduroy.
The polar opposite of elephant cord, pincord is to corduroy what pindots are to dots: an extremely small-scale version of the base pattern. Pincords make for excellent velvet substitutes and could theoretically work for smoking jackets to the untrained eye.
How & When To Wear Corduroy
Corduroy is, in fact, a very handsome fabric when it’s not paired with a cotton turtleneck and a haircut your mother gave you. Below we enumerate some of the best ways to wear corduroy.
A corduroy suit is a rare find and will likely require a custom tailor to acquire (they’re typically not sold off the rack), but it’s quite handsome nonetheless. It’s a casual suit, so we don’t recommend wearing one of these to a sartorially conservative office, at least not if you’re going to be client-facing.
However, if you have an affinity for suits and are looking for an easy way to keep the chill at bay, a corduroy suit is a great option. Go for one with patch pockets to hammer home the casual vibe, and be sure to go with a thick cuff (turn up) at the pant hem.
In fact, we’ve gathered a few excellent specimens, which you can peruse below!
A corduroy sport coat is undoubtedly the easiest way to wear corduroy and look awesome doing it. In a simple earth tone like brown, forest green, or burgundy, it’s a very handsome complement to denim or cavalry twill pants. The casualness of it allows you to pair chunky sweaters with it just as easily as you can a simple button-down shirt.
Our sport jacket guide has much more information on sport coats if you’re curious to learn more.
Also referred to as “corduroys” or just “cords,” corduroy pants, unlike suits, are actually quite common in menswear stores. They’re an excellent denim alternative in cold weather when thin chinos will leave you freezing, and they look great with tweed sport coats, which tend to be a bit hairier and more casual than other sport jackets.
Generally, we recommend a medium-wale corduroy trouser, as this is the most versatile cord from a body type perspective. Bigger men can get away with elephant cords, but we suggest that small-framed men steer clear of these wide-waled numbers.
If you don’t know what your body type is but would like to determine it (and we highly recommend that you do), our body type guide will help in in just a few minutes.
Waistcoats & Hats
Corduroy waistcoats & hats are the last items on the list that really see any play on the menswear scene. An odd waistcoat made of corduroy is a handsome way to add a layer of warmth to a casual outfit. if you go this route, we suggest a more casual single-breasted vest, though a double-breasted one will get you extra style points based on rarity alone.
Corduroy is a great material for hats, flat caps in particular. The material is warm, and since we lose most of our body heat through our heads, it makes sense to cover our domes with a thick, warm material.
Colors Found In Corduroy
As its heritage is in casual, British country clothing, it makes sense that corduroy is most at home in Earth tones: browns, tans, greens, blues, burgundy, and other such colors. This isn’t to say that other colors don’t exist; it’s perfectly normal to see a black corduroy sport coat or midnight blue corduroy trousers, of course.
Just don’t expect to find a lavender corduroy suit as easily as you’d find that same color in, say, linen.

What to wear with a velvet jacket
Velvet products are full-fledged representatives of modern fashion, and men’s and women’s velvet jackets are the most striking of them. Rich and rich in red, green or blue, these pieces form the basis of this year’s trendy men’s and women’s wardrobe. Originality, delicate style approach and color sophistication make this item of clothing an undoubted hit if it is correctly combined with other components of the wardrobe.
Daring and sophisticated “dictator” of fashion
Re-entered fashion a couple of years ago, this material is distinguished by sophistication and audacity. Regardless of what it will be worn with, it may not require additional decoration and decoration. If a women’s velvet jacket is chosen correctly, it is so luxurious in itself that against this background any decorative details will look poorer. A festive event, a romantic walk, a club get-together or a party is a great opportunity to show off in bright velvet clothes.Do you need to highlight your extraordinary qualities and originality? A stylish velvet blazer is what it takes! At the same time, these products should be washed with special delicacy.
There should not be a lot of velvet, as well as accessories to it, otherwise the appearance will be overloaded. And if the required balance is maintained, then the versatile velvet jacket will perfectly fit into your casual:
- at work;
- in the format of a romantic dinner;
- at home;
- in an office interior;
- at a corporate party;
- for friendly gatherings.
This year’s design developments are based on the extravagance of the described item – both male and female, and in the latter case, there are even more options available. The unexpected colors are recommended, up to the avant-garde – mint, orange, red, lemon, blue and green. The classic is a black velvet jacket, as well as beige and gray.
We build a harmonious ensemble
A well-chosen color scheme favorably distinguishes the velvet jacket from the total mass of clothes, unobtrusively testifying to the impeccable taste and bright personality of the owner.In the feminine version of the product, one should pay attention to the possibilities offered by the velvet jacket, re-interpreting the basic idea of the fabric. It is a wonderful combination of subtle adventurousness with unobtrusive theatricality, fashion and classical traditions. In cool weather, it is recommended to wear it under a plain, white, black or beige blouse.
Wear it with a pair of trousers every day. And more democratic additions will ideally fit into a harmonious ensemble – these are:
- cotton shirt;
- Cotton or wool blend trousers;
- Classic or trendy jeans.
The combination of a red velvet jacket with a white or light lemon shirt and trendy jeans looks great. A black fitted tee is a good option. In such an ensemble, it is ideal to appear at a bright event – a party, open-air or social gathering.
The color of burgundy goes well with light-colored trousers and adds sophistication, lightness and warmth to the image of its owner. The rich color of the top is well set off by a light or dark turtleneck, which can be replaced by a shirt and complemented by a tie or silk scarf in a breast pocket.
The same top, but in blue, is optimal for everyday wear. A shirt (white, blue or light gray), as well as straight black trousers, are in perfect harmony with him. This option is good in an office format.
But for a date or a friendly meeting, the classic dark blue jeans will be the best addition.
The green top gives the perfect range for jeans or trousers – mint, dark gray or black. Combinations of beige, orange, white and yellow are also good, T-shirts are welcome.But if other things can be sent to the wash with a clear conscience, then it is absolutely not recommended to wash a velvet jacket.
Impeccable taste and personality
Velvet, especially red and green, blue and black, has been a symbol of success and wealth since the Middle Ages. In products made of this fabric, courtiers flaunted. For Russia, red velvet is an indispensable companion of royal-level outfits. This material adorned the throne, all kinds of robes, as well as men’s and women’s dresses of empresses and kings.The richness of the fabric speaks for itself. A simple cut is enough to demonstrate the “royal” individuality and “courtly” sophistication of the product.
A jacket made of velvet – blue, as well as other colors, is best worn with items of the opposite texture. But complex textured fabrics “weigh down” the ensemble and make it old-fashioned. Bright jackets are good with neutral tones on the bottom, and bright and juicy tones will suit the black top. The “business” trousers, displaced from the fashionable line, are optimally replaced by jeans of a classic dark color.This option can be worn in a work format with a plain shirt and matching tie. One has only to try once, including the women’s version of the jacket, and you will immediately understand how favorably such an original solution distinguishes you in the gray mass of the dress code.
Even a simple T-shirt in combination with a blue velvet jacket of a classic cut and “serious” jeans turns out to be quite justified “street elegance” – slightly casual and therefore even sexier.The democratic style will be good for casual for every day. And going out in a velvet jacket is a truly win-win choice: a red top made of “royal” fabric plus formal trousers and a dazzling white shirt. If you decide and put on a men’s velvet tuxedo jacket, you will automatically find yourself in the center of attention of others.
Do not wash! Features of care
“Royal” fabric and personal care requires appropriate. The complex texture of velvet does not imply the expediency of washing it like other things.The most optimal would be to wash it, resorting to the services of a professional dry-cleaner.
But it is still necessary, if not to wash the product, then at least get rid of the annoying stain on the sleeve. Dampen a clean cloth with rubbing alcohol and rub off the stain until it disappears. If in some place the fabric is glazed, we process it by wiping this area with a brush moistened with an aqueous solution of ammonia.

How to wear corduroy clothes: 5 solutions for every day :: Things :: RBK Style
© marvaldel / instagram
14 February 2019
Two years ago, corduroy was a dubious fashion story, and today it appears every now and then in fashion-shoots.Pink’s review contains five ideas on how to wear this textured material.
Jacket with jeans
From the boyfriend’s wardrobe, you can pick up not only a white shirt and jeans, but also a corduroy jacket.Elongated and free – this is exactly what is in fashion today. The most versatile combination for a corduroy jacket is with jeans. Too easy? Then try tying a wide belt over the top of the jacket, or wearing a turtleneck and a shirt under the jacket at the same time: layering is always a good idea.
Trouser suit with a T-shirt
Corduroy suits were adored in the 1970s. In order not to be like a guest from the past today, follow a few rules. First, try to choose a suit that is as free of a fitted silhouette.Secondly, try on a version not of modest colors, but more saturated ones. Replace a shirt or turtleneck with a simple T-shirt – this will look even more relaxed. Finally, complement it all with sneakers or sneakers. There are no matches with 40-year-old fashion looks.
Trousers with matching top
It is believed that corduroy trousers visually increase the volume. Yes, there is some truth in this: the most relevant scar today is 3.5 mm, which looks very textured.You can avoid this effect by choosing a top to match your trousers. For example, a turtleneck – as did Jane Birkin. Such a simple technique looks as cool as possible.
Overalls + turtleneck
The case when playing with contrasts is a great solution. Jumpsuit in a working style is comfortable and practical, but still sometimes reminds of a uniform. To get rid of this association, it is worth complementing it with a strict turtleneck. Such a combo may well become an alternative to a casual dress.
Today, outerwear is also sewn from corduroy: bombers, leather jackets and raincoats, which can already be looked after for the spring. When buying, be guided by the rule: the calmer the shade, the better. So the thing will not quickly get bored and will serve you for several more seasons.

Therefore, today an extraordinary post about my purchases: I made an order on this particular promotion, and already managed to receive it, I show everything what was in it;).

5. Woodland Animal Pajama Set

velvet suit for women
Velvet is a fabric with an unusual texture, which was especially popular in the 70s – 80s of the last century.Back then, stylish ribbed clothing was considered the main proof of wealth and was chosen by women of all ages.
After the velvet excitement of the 80s, fashion designers for some time did not think about this material, but since fashion is cyclical, slightly forgotten trends can be seen again already in a modern interpretation. In the fall-winter 2016-2017 collections, there are different models of clothing, but experts advise to pay special attention to velvet suits.Why?
Features and advantages of material
Velvet is a material that we are used to seeing in winter collections of festive garments. This is not strange, because it is extremely difficult to find a fabric that would be distinguished by greater quality, nobility, style and warmth .
Clothes made of velvet always look expensive and, moreover, go well with other fabric options, which means you can create very unusual and varied looks with it.In addition, cotton is the basis of the velvet fabric, which means that the material does not cause discomfort when worn.
But this fabric also has a number of significant disadvantages. So, she always adds volume to the silhouette , which means that it can only be worn by girls with an obvious underweight of . And she requires special care for herself.
Clothes should be washed exclusively in cold water without rinse aid, and ironing in some cases is generally prohibited.If the fabric becomes too wrinkled after washing, you can iron it vertically.
Velvet has always been expensive to sew – this material is too capricious to handle . You cannot find cheap factory-made velvet products in the modern market either, but you must agree that it is never a pity to pay for quality. In the fashion collections of famous designers, you can find different models of velvet clothes, but the costumes made from it are the most unusual and interesting.
This season many eminent designers decided to please the young ladies with velvet trouser suits. Some of them preferred to create models in a classic style, creating a combination of a strict jacket and laconic trousers.
Roksalanda and Haider Ackermann decided to dilute the restrained atmosphere.They complemented the blazers with revealing cutouts and stylish collars, and the trousers made a tapered cut.
Temperley London and Antonio Berardi decided to complement the velvet suits models with classic pencil skirts of medium length. And in the Topshop Unique collections, you can generally find models that differ in a light top and a dark bottom.

As a decoration for costumes, designers usually use embroidery . She is adorned with both jackets and skirts with trousers. In some versions, beads or a combination of several shades are often used. The trendiest shades of this season are black, white, beige, coral, blue and green.
How to choose
When choosing a suit made of dense velvet fabric, first of all, you should take into account the peculiarities of your silhouette .Owners of ideal forms can safely choose fitted models of suits with tight-fitting trousers or classic skirts.
Girls with a pear-shaped figure are better off choosing suits with elongated jackets, and “inverted triangle” models with flared trousers and skirts. Girls with an “apple” body type should be wary of velvet suits, but any model of suits will suit “classic rectangles”.
Special attention should be paid to the owners of all shapes and shades . Light models of costumes can only be chosen by young ladies with ideal shapes. If you want to correct any part of the silhouette, then it is better to pay attention to the models in which both dark and light shades are combined.Suits that combine not only velvet, but also other fabrics are suitable for extraordinary personalities and informal looks.
With what to wear
Fashion experts say that this season velvet suits can be worn not only in the full set of . Combine classic velvet trousers or a skirt with a blouse, you can create a very elegant classic look.When combining a velvet jacket with jeans, you can get a very unusual everyday combination. Shirts and turtlenecks will suit a velvet suit if you want to create a street look.
Choosing shoes for a velvet suit, you should take into account that it is usually best combined with the classics. Pumps with small heels or wedge sandals are suitable for elegant looks and business combinations.
But velvet suits can consist not only of classic wardrobe items, but also of sports ones.Such models of suits are perfectly combined with sneakers and sneakers.
Stylish female images
Accessories have always been a highlight of any woman’s image. In the case of a velvet suit, a bag can become such a highlight. It is interesting that, depending on the image, you can choose both shapeless models of bags and elegant ones.It is only desirable that the bag has a smooth texture and is harmoniously combined with clothes in color.
