THE STRAIGHT AND NAR­ROW

Esquire (USA) - - The Code -

Cor­duroy is not the first cloth you think of when the tem­per­a­ture rises. A fab­ric as­so­ci­ated with damp coun­try walks, log fires, and dusty li­braries, it is nev­er­the­less, done right, an ideal choice for spring and early sum­mer. Done right in this case means a cot­ton needlecord so light you could make a shirt out of it, but con­structed as a jacket with no vis­i­ble means of sup­port, so you can wear it with all the ease of a cardi­gan. Cor­duroy, like its posher cousin, vel­vet, also takes color ex­tremely well, mak­ing pos­si­ble an ar­ray of un­ex­pected and in­ter­est­ing shades, like these avail­able from Ital­ian col­orists Bogli­oli. —N.
