Corduroy shirts are made for cool weather. Thanks to their construction, they're warmer and more durable than shirt made with traditional fabrics. The cords are made by inserting yarns into the fabric from the back side. Those yarns are then shorn, velvety vertical lines on the surface of the shirt. The cords actually help trap heat better and add another layer of protection.
