The Corduroy Comeback

August 28, 2018

Classic. Comfortable. Durable. Popularized in the 1960s by college students and beatniks seeking denim and chino alternatives, corduroy eventually became a trademark of the Baby Boomer generation.


Updated for today with new fits and colorways, Levi’s® cords combine the best of the original designs with modern details. From our bestselling slim fits to relaxed tapered styles, our cords add extra texture to your look and pair perfectly with denim shirts and jackets.

Everyday Taper

If you’re looking for a little give, our 502 Regular Taper offers a bit more room in the thigh for added comfort. The most versatile of our tapered fits, it looks great with everything from hoodies to jean jackets.

Classic Since Right Now

Our 511 Slim sits right below your waist and falls slim from hip to ankle, giving this vintage fabric a contemporary style upgrade. For the perfect fall look, load up on layers, like our Thermore Padded Parka shown here worn over our Mighty Made Rugby shirt, topped off by our tried-and-true Ribbed Beanie.

Corduroy Takeover

Be bold. Go for a head-to-toe cords look with our SilverTab Corduroy Overalls. To balance out the outfit, we paired them with a simple white crewneck tee and added accessories, like our Levi’s® x Jordan IV Sneakers.

Create your own look with our full line of corduroys for men.
