Say it isn't so

Corduroy making a comeback for adults? 

"A range of corduroy appeared in the fall-winter 2015 fashion shows, including a trench coat in “jumbo cord” on the runway for the English brand Burberry Prorsum. But corduroy pants, such as the drawstring joggers shown by the Japanese brand Sacai, are probably the easiest item to incorporate into a new fall wardrobe.

Other men’s designers, including Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs, Burberry and Boglioli, have come up with modern takes on the corduroy pant.

Adding texture to a given outfit, like a mohair knit shirt or a stonewashed denim jacket, lends the waled pants that tinge of youthful spirit evident on the runway."

The durability of the fabric has another bonus. “The more you wear corduroys, the more beautiful they get,” he said."

    Fantastic - but what about corduroy underpants, corduroy socks and for the chicks matching corduroy brassieres and nickers?

    Fuck, we could even have corduroy sheets and pillow slips for adventurous lovers.

    A corduroy car would be perfect.

    Actually I've only ever owned one pair of (cream) corduroy dacks (1960s) - the more I wore them the shabbier they became - yuk.

    Pumpkin and yours truly are doing (insanely) fine thanks Caz - I hope you and loved ones are likewise (sans the insanity).
