These incredible corduroy pants will keep you warm all winter long
Corduroy is a fabric that has had a wide range of associations throughout its history, from its most recognizable roots in the 19th century British working class to a counterculture signifier in the 1960s. Today Yes, especially with pants, it’s more of a preppy look than anything else, but corduroy should be a staple in everyone’s winter wardrobe.

Once engineered for durability, the heavy weight of corduroy makes it warmer than other pants, especially when made from wool rather than cotton, while the padded textures give it a sort of dapper appeal that is not as stuffy as it is striped.
