Worn with just the right pieces, your corduroys can make a smart statement. While they’ve being admonished for seeming studious or even boring, some designers have taken it upon themselves to give corduroy a new look and a fresh feel.
I picked some of our favorite corduroy pants to make your shopping easier:
This pair from Joseph Homme is a wardrobe essential. A deep dark bottle green adds interest to your wardrobe, and can be paired casually with a subtly patterned shirt with earthy tones. These trousers have the style lines of a dress pant and have cuffed hems. They are available at YOOX for $98.00 on sale.
Polo by Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren’s corduroys are slimmed down in all the right places, but you won’t miss the traditional details that you love in your other corduroy trousers. You still have side slash pockets and welt pockets in the back, but these trousers are a new addition to the classic world of corduroys. The straight leg style works well with a glossy pair of Italian boots and a funky tie. Available at Macy’s for a sale price of $74.99.
The Tasso Elba micro cord pants have a light texture and a clean look, so you can wear these trousers anywhere. This versatile pair has a clean front and traditional offseam side pockets. Get yours in brown, grey, or putty from Macy’s. They’re a steal at $49.99.
This interesting hybrid is for a more daring man. The flat front styling is right at home with traditional cords, but the fit make them slide close to a jeans look. They are modern, fresh, and young. Available in espresso and khaki colors, they are a sleek addition to any closet. You can find the Kenneth Cole “Destroyed Cord” trousers for $34.99 ta Macy’s.
These corduroys from Nautica have traditional details like back besom pockets and a cuffed hem.
