Corduroy History 101
Corduroy actually has a very rich history which goes far back to 200 AD to Fustat, a small city near Cairo, Egypt where it was initially woven. Exported then to Europe, it became popular with 18 century London tailors and among the Parisian intellectuals in the early 20 century. The Beatles then hugely popularized it by wearing corduroy suits in the 60s. In the US, it was a favorite among the Ivy League students and still remains an Ivy League staple to this day.
The name Corduroy comes from the French “Corde du Roi” meaning cloth of the king.
Since then it has had its share of ups and downs, but corduroy is back and flourishing in the fashion community. High-end designers like Prada, Armani, and Caruso incorporated it in their runway collections recently.
Styling Corduroy Trousers For Men
Styling corduroy can go two ways- really well or really badly. Which is why we’re here to help you figure out how you can style your corduroy trousers to look stylish and sharp. Since the fabric is woven thick, we would suggest you to keep your trousers slim fitted and not overly baggy. Another thing to consider is the length of your trousers- they should sit just beneath your ankles and on top of your trainers. If they’re too long, you can always roll up the hems. Do not shy away from color! Step away from the basic black and try colors like tan, brown and beige.
Let’s look at how you can style corduroy trousers in your everyday life:
