Corduroy Is Soft, Stylish and Versatile — Here’s Why It’s Our Favorite Pant in 2020


As you’ve probably noticed, 70s and 80s (and even some 90s) trends are back with a vengeance. One of the most wearable clothing trends to wear right now is men’s corduroy pants. Corduroy can be worn throughout the year and has a soft velvety touch. The most used type of corduroy is the baby wale; that’s a very fine corduroy that at first glance doesn’t seem to have any ribbing at all.

The fabric is easy to wear with either a T-shirt or a blazer. Designers have played with the fabric and created various styles of men’s corduroys in joggers, jeans and trousers.

We all need a jolt of new stuff to wear now and then, so scroll on through and find a pair or three of the best men’s corduroy pants that you can rock at home or out and about — even if it’s just a trip to the market.

  

1. Weekday Sunday Corduroy Trousers

BEST OVERALL

Swedish-based Weekday is one of H&M’s satellite brands, and they have a reputation for creating cool street style fashion that’s good for the environment. Their Sunday trousers have a dropped crotch, medium-rise and a tapered fit. That means they’re a bit wider (or generous) in the seat and thighs, then narrow down the leg.

2. Bershka Skinny Corduroy Pants

BEST SPORTY

They have a subtle all over shadow plaid, so it adds a sporty almost golf vibe to them. Cut like a chino; these corduroy pants have side slash front pockets, sit at the waist, and two faux back pockets.

Les Tiens added more comfort by giving them a tapered fit, wider at the thigh and butt, and a little narrower down the leg.
