Mens Ready Made Outfit: Crisp Corduroy

January 21st, 2009

Mens Ready Made Outfit
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

There’s nothing quite like crisp pinwale corduroy for a crisp cool day.  In blazer form, corduroy can take you to work (in business casual environments) and out on a date. Here’s how to wear a corduroy blazer:

1.  Start with the basics: a comfy henley shirt and a pair of light khaki pants.  You may also want to layer a crewneck tee under the henley shirt.
2.  Toss on a slim cut corduroy blazer.  Make sure that the blazer features a narrow cut; the trim fit and narrow lapels are slimming.  In this outfit, notice how the deep navy blue blazer makes the white pants visually pop.
3.  Accessorize with a bright blue scarf and a pair of rich brown shoes that echo the brown belt.  For colder temperatures, switch out the lightweight scarf for something warmer, such as a cashmere knit.

    Sigh. My husband abhors corduroy … maybe if I show him this post, he’ll change his tune.

    I like the shoes, and I wanted to check them out. So I followed the link. Took me to a page at that says “search item not found,” or something like that. So, FYI about the broken link. But I did a little sleuthing and I think I found out that the shoes are the Kenneth Cole shoes they call Sharpen Up. The Kenneth Cole site is out of stock in them. I found them elsewhere, though. I like the look of them. I ordered a pair. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hi Tom,

    We create these outfits not as a direct shopping guide (since sooner or later, all of these links to products go dead), but as a form of inspiration. Thanks for the heads up, though, and glad you like and found the shoes! They are extremely versatile :)

    Thanks, Trisha. I really like that you put the items up on Polyvore, because it shows us the prices of the items and where they came from. And Polyvore still shows us these things even if one of the links expires, like the one I found. Please don’t stop putting the items up on Polyvore as you do.

    Glad that you like the Polyvore outfits. We’ll continue doing this!

    Does this kind of apply to females as well because I have a corduroy blazer and a velvet blazer that I have no clue how to wear? I got them as gifts a few years ago and I think I only worn them a couple of times in the past when the people who gave them to me were around. :0P
