Despite its French-sounding name, Corduroy is a resolutely English cloth dating back to the 18th century and the beginning of the industrial revolution. In some parts of Europe, it still retains the name Manchester cloth; a reminder of its roots in “Cottonopolis”.
Effectively a ridged velvet, corduroy is a hardy, yet soft fabric with a pedigree linked to hunting and outdoor pursuits.
This season at Timothy Everest, we have introduced two different corduroys into our popular washed programme; a pleasing green wide wale and an elegant navy pincord. Like the rest of our washed programme suiting, after the dyed garment is cut and sewn, the final washing process creates a soft hue and handle giving the finished article warmth and a vintage look.
Team with our Sanders Playboy shoes and Merino Polo for a functional, adaptable autumn outfit.
