Corduroy is really pretty neat if you think about it. Besides being a great producer of noise pollution, few pant materials combine more softness, durability, and weather resistance than good old toss-in-the-wash corduroy. It seems like there's a trend these days towards making cords that are finer ribbed and shaped more like fashion forward jeans, but f**k THAT. Give us the old school, straight-legged, plush, wide-wale corduroy any day, the kind that casts long groovy shadows late on a fall afternoon. Preferably with a touch of stretch and a little sheen.
