    -Corduroy Jacket Question

    -Hey I am a noob here and the site is really great. I need a tip on what I can wear a polo corduroy sport coat with. I bought the sport coat last year and it is a black cord with brown suede elbow patches. any tips?


    There are some style rules that most people agree on, and some that are hotly debated. For the rules that are debatable, your attitude (swagger/confidence) in how you pull off the luck makes all the difference.

    Many people will tell you that black is not as versatile as tweed, gray, navy, etc. I agree with that; you need to wear colors that are equally bold / have the same impact. That said, black is also neutral so it matches every color. Here's my attempt at black cord sport coat w/ brown:

    IMO: Since you already have brown patches on the elbows, I would stick to a brown belt and brown shoes. Dark gray or indigo jeans. No dress slacks, the cord jacket is too casual. No dark navy that looks to be too close of a match to black. Maybe gray worsted wool or grayish tweed depending on how loud the texture is. Also, IMO no cord pants with a cord jacket. Shirt and optional v neck sweater can be almost anything.

    Also this general cord thread:
