Corduroy trousers have been a classic of the men’s wardrobe since forever. The robust fabric is soft and cosy yet stylish. Available in numerous cuts, colours and fabric thicknesses, this all-rounder of the men’s fashion world is always wonderful to mix and match.
The classic woven corduroy fabric originated in the English city of Manchester. Corduroy fabric was produced there for the first time in the 18th century. For this reason, corduroy is often still called “Manchester cloth” today.
Corduroy is differentiated into the following cord types depending on the width and thickness of the woven fabric: Elephant cord is the widest corduroy variant and usually comprises 10 to 25 ribs per 10 cm. Genoa cord is also called Manchester cloth and forms a medium-fine woven fabric that comprises between 25 and 40 ribs per 10 cm and the needlecord or babycord variants form the finest appearance of this fabric with a high number of vertical ribs – 40 per 10 cm.
Whether you wear them with a jumper, cardigan or casual shirt, or paired with a smart business coat, thanks to their soft fabric, these trousers give every outfit a special look.
