Style Icons in Corduroy Jackets
Corduroy’s gotten a bad rap over the years, especially when it’s in jacket form.
And that’s a damned shame.
Because though you might imagine the ribbed fabric as off-limits to all but New England prep schoolers and college librarians, great men have perennially donned all forms of the stuff—pinwaled, wide-set and everything in between—and have managed to look pretty darned handsome regardless. With a bit of inspiration (and maybe a good tailor), we firmly believe that you could, too.
Herewith, a visual tutorial from iconic men in corduroy jackets:
