Corduroy may not have the best rep—the fabric’s known more for its durability than its flattering fit.  But that hasn’t stopped brands from trying to glam it up since the 1700s, when they tried to rename it “corde du roi,” or “cord of the king”. Nevertheless, the waled material has continuously fallen in and out of style.  In 1982 Gianni Versacededicated his entire menswear line to corduroy back in 1982, but other than that its popularity falls largely on the shoulders of college professors and Jerry Garcia.  Until now, at least.  This fall, designers took a stab at not only reinventing the material, but the way in which it’s—classic bell bottoms, skinnies, trousers, and even leggings.  Olivier Theyskens‘ low slung version for Theory’s our favorite, but here are a few others to get you excited about the traditionally not-so-thrilling material.
