For years, corduroy has been left out in the cold, much in part to its bookish credentials but, thanks the industry’s love affair with retro revivals, it has successfully made the move from the classroom to the catwalk. This ’70s-style ridged fabric has long been the uniform of academics, but this autumn, it’s been given a fashion makeover. Check out some of the best corduroy fashion to shop for fall, ahead.
