The corduroy blazer has been in decline for awhile. Mostly because men started wearing them with JEANS! Don’t do that, man. You have a nice jacket, wear it with nice pants and other things.
But, at least men were still trying, and believe me, a dude wouldn’t wear this without being told that he looked good doing it at some point. I think that the corduroy blazer is versatile and should be a part of every man’s wardrobe. I prefer patches on the elbows, but that’s the librarian in me talking. I mean, I would prefer tweed, too, but that shit’s EXPENSIVE!
Anyways, here’s a decent black corduroy blazer over at Men’s Wearhouse, but this deal won’t last because it’s on clearance. So work fact, and get this black blazer for $80! Adjust the size as you see fit, because there aren’t a lot of people that I think this wouldn’t look good on.
