Corduroy pants: don't wear if overweight?

I'm quite overweight, and feel if I wear corduroy pants, that type of heavy material makes me look even heavier!


I like the look of corduroy pants from my college years in 1978-1982, but do guys wear them anymore, whether young or older?

You should be concerned with the combinations of: fit/tailoring and color. Cordoroy should be possible. Everyone can see you are fat but some look beyond that to see if you are well dressed.

You’re what we call a “Cordoroy Fatty”

Not to be rude but if your thighs rub together when you walk it’s going to have an unpleasant effect on the corduroy. Stick to khakis. They wear well and look good on everyone. I’m a large guy myself so I speak from experience.

“Corduroy pants: don't wear if overweight?”

And stay far away from grease—for fear of corduroy rubbing sparks igniting a grease fire, you fat whore.

Do caftans come in corduroy?

It’s not the fashion sense, OP, it’s the fire hazard that should be your concern.

I actually can't recall seeing corduroy ANYTHING in stores for the last decade? Maybe because I haven't been looking, but...

If your thighs rub together, corduroy makes an obnoxious noise.

I just bought a pair of cords at Costco. I had to buy new clothes being I have had a 15 pound Covid 19 weight gain.

It’s hard to show off your junk in cords.

Choose the style more like jeans, not billowy baggy styles. Perhaps skip the really thick wale cords. I'm stocky, or thick, and find the fabric itself isn't an issue.

[quote] really thick wale cords.

Tee hee.

The whale should avoid the wale.

Whatever you decide, please skip pleats. It's astounding how many pairs of pleated trousers are still around; they'll only make you appear puffier.

If I wore cords i would look like a BarcaLounger.

Get yourself a made in Scotland kilt. They can be very forgiving on you full figured girls.

I love slim cut navy cords on a slim man. Doesn’t work ON ME because I am HUSKY.

Corduroy jackets, yes, corduroy trousers, no.

by Anonymousreply 1811/21/2020

Just get some pleated ones!

Umm is it 1974? Why the fuck are you wearing corduroy?

by Anonymousreply 2011/21/2020

I have horrific memories of corduroy pants. They were our school uniform. It was Sears Toughskins through 6th grade, then "Junior High" (7th and 8th grade) it was dark blue Levi's "cords", with the patch pockets on the butt like jeans. It is not a fabric I think I could ever wear again without being triggered.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
