Smart Corduroy Jacket from Brooklyn Industries

Ev­er no­tice your­self de­vel­op­ing a per­son­al uni­form? As much as we strive for va­ri­ety and orig­i­nal­i­ty, most of us have some de­fault fa­vorite out­fits, a per­son­al style for­mu­la. One we like for guys: nice skin­ny jeans (avoid skin tight, please- we don’t need to see that), an un­usu­al or wit­ty graph­ic T (no Hanes, please), per­haps a but­ton-up or sweater and a blaz­er. Scarves make great win­ter ac­ces­sories with­out look­ing like you tried too hard. We’re cur­rent­ly par­tic­u­lar­ly fond of the Pro­fes­sor Cor­duroy Jack­et from Brook­lyn In­dus­tries.

The jack­et it cut slim- much dif­fer­ent from the cor­duroy box you may re­mem­ber pro­fes­sors wear­ing. This non-frumpy up­date runs small, so if you’re or­der­ing on­line, don’t un­der­es­ti­mate your size. Dustin, shown above, found the large a snug fit.

We like the fit, but the de­tails are what re­al­ly sell us on this jack­et. It has el­bow patch­es! They’re flex­i­ble, and go well with the rich brown. The cor­duroy is soft, a “wide-whale” cord. There are roomy pock­ets at the hip and- this is the best part- the lin­ing is black with white pol­ka dots.

At $138, we think this is a great way to make your wardrobe dis­tin­guished. Pair it with glass­es, wit­ty con­ver­sa­tion and bel­gian beer for a great evening.

About the Author

The ampersand tattoo on her shoulder goes a long way towards explaining Ruth's outlook on life: there's always an "and." With TrulyNet, Ruth enjoys working on social media and writing... and editing... and... Ruth went to the University of Oregon, where she studied music, dance and cognitive psychology (and sleeping very little). While there, she designed classes and taught arts enrichment to talented and gifted grade-school students. After graduation, Ruth spent several years as a Market Analyst at a large law firm in New York. Feeling the pull back to the west coast, Ruth moved to San Francisco and worked for Stanford for a year before deciding to focus on her passion for the arts. Ruth spends more time on Facebook that she cares to admit. When not attached to the computer, working for TrulyNet, or dancing, Ruth rock climbs, knits, swims, obsessively plays Boggle, plays games, plays tennis, cooks, sips beer, wine and whiskey, and travels seeking adventure.
