SS15 is about the Corduroy trousers ideal for cold mornings, stylish for every day wear, Corduroy is a textile composed of twisted fibers that, when woven, lie parallel (similar to twill) to one another to form the cloth’s distinct pattern, a “cord.” Modern corduroy is most commonly composed of tufted cords, sometimes exhibiting a channel (bare to the base fabric) between the tufts. Corduroy is, in essence, a ridged form of velvet, last year nearly all major men’s fashion brands included corduroy trousers in their SS15 collections, the corduroy trouser is a simple classic that never ages in my eyes, you can get corduroy trousers in many styles like 5 pocket jeans style or the simple trousers style, you a get cords in chunky cord or a fine pine cord, these are my favourite type of cords, the material feels very special very smooth, so let’s have a look at four of my favourite company’s who are offering cords in their SS15 collection.
