Corduroy can be a minefield. Get it wrong and there’s a good chance you’ll spend your downtime looking like a Seventies science teacher on a school field trip. Done right however, corduroy can be the answer to your transitional dressing dreams as we head into autumn.

See beyond the stuffy connotations and corduroy’s appeal is easy to understand. Yes, it’s practical and hardwearing, but we can get that from our denim. Corduroy colours on the other hand extend beyond your usual blue and black, introducing jewel hues of rich emerald, ruby and sapphire to your outfits, plus a shimmering wale texture that keeps things interesting. It’s the country gent look we all covet come the colder days, all heavy fabrics and deep dramatic tones.


Once you’ve chosen your colour – stepping well away from anything mustard – it all comes down to cut. The beauty of the Hugo Boss Slim-Fit Fine-Ribbed Corduroy Jacket is two-fold. A fine rib creates a luxurious soft sheen that juxtaposes perfectly against autumn’s cotton tees and winter woollens, but more importantly, a slim fit steers your look well away from the science department. Perfectly tailored and in rich rust hue, it’s a seasonal take on a retro classic.
