On The Fence: Statement Cords

[Pictured: Polo Slim-fit Corduroy Jean available for $69.99.]

Dan's most recent post on some serious "go-to-hell" holiday gear alerted me to some cord's on sale over at Polo.  These are not for the faint of heart or your average sartorially novice.  Anyone can (and should) rock a pair of muted cords as a nice alternative to your jeans and chinos, but boy are these "loud" for lack of a better term.  You're probably not going to find me wearing any of these, though the blue ones do strike a certain...c(h)ord?  Strictly for the bold and those trying to turn heads at their company's Christmas party.



  1. I love 'em...with the 10" Bean boots, too? "it's muuuuurder!"

  2. Jump the fence! Once you start wearing them you won't want to stop.

  3. KJ- Don't get me started on Bean Boots...haha. The green ones tucked into a pair of bean boots would be killer.

    Brian- Still not sure if I can just THIS high.

  4. You want to see some other crazy colored cords? Check these:

    I own the Mint Juleps and the Imperial Navys. Mint Juleps get tooooooooonnnnnnsssss of looks in the summer months. Guys hate on them occasionally , but girls love them.

    I posted a discount code on my post about Bonobos if anyone is ever interested in trying a pair, risk-free.

  5. I don't know if rust-colored cords are considered GTH, but that's about as far as I would go in terms of boldness.

  6. Don...I almost bought the red bonobos a while back after seeing the post on concern was the boot cut look in the photos?

    L---this is surely a first....2 Delaware guys commenting on the same post. Brian, great blog (get at me interests and less than an hour apart, thought I was the only one here in DE) L--sorry for hijacking the post.

  7. Joe- No worries, I would hope this blog is a forum for conversation at the very least. Not to mention, you are going to be hijacking Sart Inc. with your guest post later tonight, haha.

  8. Joe - I'm actually wearing my boot cut Clean Slates right now. I don't mind the boot, even thought I'm more of a straight leg fan personally. But again, the risk is so small to try them. Free shipping both ways, return any pants any time, sale today + 15% discount? If you were ever considering, now would be the time IMHO. Let me know if you pull the trigger. Perfect for Christmas parties this year!! haha

  9. Very informative post! There is a lot of information here that can help any business get starting from zero.
