Corduroy's made a strong showing across countless menswear brands over the past half-decade. The ’70s-favorite fabric is popping up in a range of garments including shirts, blazers, pants and jackets — plus accessories like backpacks and hats.

There is no country dominating the push: American, Japanese and European brands are equally represented. And they’re all in. Chunky wide-wale corduroy is standard. Dusty pinks and greens are offered alongside traditional tans and blues. So if you’re interested in buying some corduroy for your wardrobe, don’t just test the water: Dive in and embrace the range of textures and colors available this season — there are more options now than ever before. These items represent 20 different ways to wear corduroy.
