Corduroy pants work well not only as weekend wear, but for business casual which is probably why they are such a seasonal favorite--aside from the rich look and velvety feel. The jeans-style and washed cords look great with distressing, which gives them a vintage look. The more tailored kind can be worn for those business casual days when paired with a button down shirt and tweed jacket. What ever your style, there's a corduroy pant out there for you, perhaps in this top picks list.
I love these cords. They have a straight leg, button fly and subtle back pocket stitching detail. All of the colors these cords come in would look great with a jean jacket or a sport coat. They also have a bit of polyester and Lycra which will help them keep their color and shape.
These Calibrate cords are a dressier pant. The fine-wale corduroy give them a velvety look and feel. The fit is more modern with a flat front and straight legs. They can easily be dressed up with a blazer and dress shirt or dressed down with a simple sweater.
These cotton and rayon blend Nautica cords are dressy like the Calibrate cords yet these are less expensive. And since they have a dressier look, they pair nicely with a sweater or a sport coat and dress shirt. They also come in four colors.
These American Rag cords have a straight fit and make a comfortable alternative to your jeans. They are available in two muted colors and they are really well priced.
