In contemporary society, it would be hard to find someone who doesn't own at least one, or more likely, multiple items of denim clothing. Denim is a wardrobe staple, and for good reason; it is versatile and can effortlessly compliment many outfits.
Corduroy deserves the same praise, but often lacks the same spotlight in the fashion world as denim. Have no fear - James Harper is here to change that and give corduroy credit where it's due.
But first, what even is the difference between denim and corduroy? Denim is composed of rugged twill, whereas corduroy has a more velvety feel with vertical ridges. Both are usually cotton based. The beauty of corduroy is that it can be dressed up or down, and James Harper's new Autumn-Winter (AW21) collection provides ample selection of various corduroy styles to choose from.
For a classy evening look, our black or French navy corduroy long sleeve shirt is the one to choose. And if you're feeling a bit bolder, why not wear the olive or bright nutmeg version?
One of the menswear trends of 2021 is textured clothing, so the ridges that characterise corduroy more than tick that box. The James Harper corduroy patch pocket jacket can be worn in olive or navy to add some texture to an outfit, or even layered over a jumper for those extra chilly days.
If you're bored of your denim jeans, give corduroy pants a chance to provide that stylish comfort you're after. Even experiment with some new colours, like with our army-coloured corduroy pants.
You know what they say; out with the old and in with the new.
