Muddler Corduroy Club Pants by Vineyard Vines

On December 18, 2010, in Mens, Pants, by Ryan & Ben

This time of year, heavy fabrics are key if you are going to be spending any time outside.  With wind chills in the teens, and snow in the forecast, a pair of cotton chinos just won’t cut it.  Of course, you could go with something flannel lined, but you could also go with something a bit heavier like a solid pair of corduroy pants. If you are in the market, we recommend the Muddler Corduroy Club Pants by Vineyard Vines ($98.50 – $175).

Of course, when you think of Vineyard Vines you think of their pink whale.  In the textile world, “wale” has a whole different meaning.  What many of us refer to us “cords” in corduroy are actually called wales.  The Muddler Corduroy Club Pants by Vineyard Vines are made of an 11-wale corduroy meaning that there are 11 wales per inch. Though a high wale count such as this tends to lead to a dressier pant than something with a wider wale, we think that these pants should be worn just like you would wear a pair of chinos, or even a pair of jeans.  Available in 5 colors (Khaki, Beach, Otter, Jolly Green, and Red), and a plaid print for those of you who are a bit more adventurous, these pants look as good with a tucked in oxford and bucks as they do with an untucked long sleeve tee and boatshoes.
