CORDS & CORDOVAN
Fall has finally arrived here in Metro Detroit so I can now justify the heavy corduroy trousers again.
This particular pair might be my favorite pair of trousers that I own. Nothing too fancy, just Brooks Brothers 8-wale cords in the Clark fit, but I’ve had them probably seven years now so they are extremely broken in and are holding up great. I have had to send them to the tailors a few times though: once a couple years back to accommodate an increased in my waist size and, thankfully, once earlier this year to accommodate weight loss.
The shoes are a pair of 4-eyelet shell cordovan moc toe bluchers from Alden NY. These have been my go to footwear choice for the office over the past month. So much so that I’ve decided to thin out my Alden collection because I have so many that just aren’t getting worn (check out Style Forum for some great buys as I put them out there).
