We got our hands on one of the new season Corduroy Shirts, here's what we thought.
We have linked up with Selfridges to bring you an up-close look and review of the new season AW19 Corduroy Shirt! They sent us over the much sought after Rust colour to give you an idea of the look and feel of this new Jumbo Cord material!
“ The tactile, corrugated fabric forms a relaxed silhouette on this boxy overshirt, keeping the rest of its button-up profile devoid of embellishment; well, apart from the brand’s signature compass at the sleeve, of course.”
This coming season sees the brand continue with their long awaited re-visit of the classic Corduroy material. Any avid collector knows about the late 80's and 90's classic Jumbo Cord shirts that have been blown up in recent years by a certain Canadian geeza called Drake. We got stuck in to let you know how the new version matches up.
After the AW18 return to the use of Corduroy with releases of Hoodies, V Neck Sweats and Tracksuits most fans have been waiting with baited breath to see if the brand would put out a shirt in the same material. With prices on vintage Corduroy shirts hitting an all time high recently it has become near impossible to get one at a fair price, so this release couldn't come soon enough for a lot of people! The shirts are made from a 100% Cotton Corduroy material which has the classic Jumbo ridges seen on the classic shirts making them so loved by old school collectors and hypebeasts alike.
The build feels heavy and robust making for a nice quality feel when wearing. This style can be worn as an Overshirt with a T-Shirt underneath or as a standalone shirt making it very versatile from season to season, so it's not just a pure winter piece. A nice touch is the heavy set collar, cuffs, hem and front pockets which are a big throwback to the finish on the classic vintage models. The shirt comes with a beautifully subtle embroidered logo rather than the classic arm patch which in our opinion provides an understated style for those in the know. They haven't skimped on the quality that's for sure.
We've been loving the new Jumbo Cord shirts and have been pleasantly surprised at how well they match up to the vintage models in terms of quality and the heavy feel on the older models. They definitely come highly recommended from us, and if you are looking to cop hit up Selfridges here to grab one of the two colour options they are stocking.
