GQ Selects: Ralph Lauren’s Worn-In Cords

“Another one of the things Ralph Lauren does so well is to keep some of the old-world trappings of a garment but still make it wearable. These corduroy pants have a utilitarian, work-wear look to them, but the fabric is extremely soft and the garment washing has faded them into a beautiful blue color.

Corduroy is a heavier fabric, so you should always go for a slimmer cut, like these, to avoid adding extra pounds to your physique. It’s a great weekend pant for those autumn days when the mercury starts to dip a little low.”

—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director

    These corduroys are fantastic and I agree entirely with everything you said. They are fun and comfortable to wear. These corduroys are what I like best about autumn and winter.
