Corduroy is one of the all-time great menswear fabrics and has been since it was first introduced in the late 18th century. Which in no way means that it can't be improved upon. At least not if you're Taylor Stitch, the S.F.-based apparel artisans who specialize in taking preconceived clothing notions and turning them on their head.
To start with when reinventing the corduroy shirt, they specified fabric woven in 100% organic cotton, and had it dyed the perfect shade of cinnamon brown. After which it was cut and sewn in their classic Jack silhouette.
That translates to a tailored fit, rigorous construction, a perfectly proportioned button-down collar and dark horn buttons for the Jack in Cinnamon Corduroy. The 8.5-oz. weight of the cotton is just enough to keep you warm but still easy to layer under heavier garments, the brand notes.
In addition, the structured feel of the corduroy "will relax over time," giving the essential shirt a distinctive soft texture that "gets better with each wear," making it uniquely yours.
Note however that this is a limited, small batch item, so don't sleep on getting your order in.
