Corduroy classic.

Autumn favorite, corduroy needs special cleaning care to preserve the rich velvety pile and prevent shrinking. If your corduroy garment is washable, check the label before throwing it in the wash. Never wash with lint producers like fleece, felt or terry. Use the right water temperature, wash like colors together and turn the garment inside out. Then air dry until barely damp, tumble dry for ten minutes at lowest temperature to fluff the nap. Pull from dryer and shake out, turn back right side out and brush nap to remove any lint or surface wrinkles. Or skip all that and let us clean your corduroy for like-new results.

Men’s style step-up.

You love jeans, we love jeans. No one’s saying to stop wearing them. But it’s too easy to pull on some denim day after day (after day). And we’re living at a time when there’s never been more choices for men’s trousers. Make sure your closet is stocked with casual pants like cotton chinos, joggers and a pair of well-cut sweatpants. Maybe even some tailored cargos. And round things out with some proper wool pants that can be dressed up with a jacket and tie or dressed down with some sneakers.
