Cast aside all images of Geography teachers in well-worn corduroy jackets and trousers, and instead look to this menswear stalwart as your new season style update.

The trick is to keep it contemporary with a narrow needle cord which gives a velvet effect to elevate corduroy to new levels. Choose from rich petrol blues through to deepest maroon and black for slick evening attire. Add a roll neck sweater beneath for a look that ticks all the boxes on every well-dressed man’s checklist.

Style Tip: Not just for evening – for a casual take on corduroy that’s of-the-moment, a cord trucker jacket updates outerwear for down-time dressing.
