Wale Watching: Corduroys Get the Chic Treatment This Season

True, the term chic corduroy became an oxymoron when cords emerged as the go-to pants for shlubby dads, substitute teachers, and other manner of slovenly dressers. But this upgraded pair from Gucci will remind you just how fashionable the fabric can be.

Pants ($495) by Gucci.

True, the term chic corduroy became an oxymoron when cords emerged as the go-to pants for shlubby dads, substitute teachers, and other manner of slovenly dressers. But this upgraded pair from Gucci will remind you just how fashionable the fabric can be. The ultra-thin wale and exquisite stone-washed cotton give these pants a subdued, luxe feel, and the classic five-pocket style makes them versatile enough to dress up or down. Don't worry—even at their most casual, they're more cocktail lounge than teachers' lounge.
