The tan corduroy suit will become this fall’s answer to the summer khaki suit or at least I hope it gets a chance to make its case. Like a khaki suit, the thin wale tan corduroy works best when broken up and worn as separates. Rock the jacket and waist coat with your favorite jeans or get fully suited for a day at the office. This fall when the weather is a little brisk, a corduroy suit will keep you warm enough that you can leave your heavy coat at home.
This post features a custom tan corduroy suit from Indochino (available online) styled 5 ways as a part of a two-part series. A staple of college professors, grand dads and hipsters, corduroy has been looking for a way to make it into the modern guy’s wardrobe without making you feel like he’s wearing a fire starting suit. Check out all five looks and let us know what’s your favorite outfit.

Getting the most out of a suit is always top of mind when making that purchase and the corduroy suit is surprisingly versatile pick up for the fall. Start off by rocking the jacket & waist coat with a pair of jeans. It’s a solid way to dress up a pair of jeans without feeling too stuffy. If this is your first time venturing into the world of corduroy suiting, the jacket & waist coat break up is a great jumping off point in your new style journey.
Ways To Pair A Tan Corduroy Waist Coat & Jacket With Jeans
- Shirt Choice: corduroy is a heavier weight fabric than your traditional wool suits and should be complemented by an equally heavy weight shirt. A flannel, plaid patterned button down shirt is seasonally appropriate and will add a ruggedness to your suit
- Dark Wash Denim: pairing dark wash denim with your tan corduroy ensemble is a no-brainer. The color gives off the same affect as a pair of navy dress pants, but, you’ll flip the cuff to show the selvedge underside for a casual affect
- Add Boots: leave the Oxford works shoes in the closet and switch up your style with a dress boot. A well-tailored dress boot gives a nod to the work wear qualities of the rest of the look and are refined enough to wear to the office
