The brown corduroy blazer is one of those items in your wardrobe that can be your go to piece for different occasions. The reason I classify the corduroy blazer as a fashion essential is because it is something that really won’t go out of style and there are multiple ways to wear it.
Originally, corduroy was used as a working fabric by Englishman because it didn’t split and was durable enough to withstand any job that would normally ruin other fabrics. As denim came into the picture, corduroy eventually got replaced due to the fact that denim was both cheaper and equally as durable. Corduroy though, stayed in the hearts of the English and was used in other ways, for example, hunting apparel. When I picture corduroy I can’t help but envision a man with a shotgun decked out in full corduroy, wellingtons on his feet, prowling for rabbits! For that reason I feel corduroy blazers have to be in a brown monochromatic palette!
