A corduroy suit is a beautiful thing.
It’s formal enough for most offices, but has a laidback charm to it.
Best part is, when you invest in a corduroy suit you get three wardrobe essentials: a versatile seasonal suit, a timeless pair of go-to trousers, and a sports jacket you can wear casually.
As the first of a two-part series, here’s three corduroy suits: dressed up.
1. Go-to Grey
There’s no question a grey flannel suit is a menswear staple. Men have been wearing them for decades and they look good on everybody.
A grey cord suit, in my opinion, can pull all the same moves as the uber-popular flannel, but performs a little better on the weekend.
Winter is all about texture.
Try mixing beefy, three-dimensional fabrics to stay warm and give your outfit some depth.
A grey suit works with black or brown shoes.
It’s not necessary to match your buttons to your shoes, but I chose black leather buttons for this suit because I plan to wear it with black more often than brown.
