The Unstoppable Wide Wale Suit

January 4th, 2014

Why invest in a wide-wale corduroy suit? Because there are countless ways to wear it from casual, to office, to formal.

Here’s some examples using one of my favorite 3-piece suits.

1. The Winter 2-Piece

DB 3

With a suit this heavy you can really extend the time before you need an overcoat.

2. The Tailored Coat


Since the thick ribbed cotton is such a tough fabric, it’s like having a very trim peacoat.


3. The Perfect Trouser

When you buy a corduroy suit, don’t forget you get a perfectly tailored pair of cords!

4. Business Casual

Casual DB

As with any navy suit jacket cut from a textured cloth, you also get a perfect blazer.

5.  The Full Monty


Nothing says class like a three-piece suit, especially one in a seasonal fabric.



Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,
