| What is corduroy?

A fabric with evenly-spaced vertical rows of soft pile. Corduroys are classified by the number of lengthwise pile rows per inch—feathercord has 20-25; pinwale has 16-23; regular wale has 14; wide wale has 6-10; and broad wale has 3-5. Depending on the weight of the fabric, corduroy can be used in dresses, shirts, pants, coats and upholstery. It is a particularly popular clothing fabric for the cooler months.
