Corduroy is essential to Cool Uncle Swag. It’s low-key, yet highly functional, just like they are. And Cool Uncle’s are essential to growing up. They put us up on albums we weren’t supposed to be into yet, gave us stuff we weren’t supposed to have, took us to places we weren’t supposed to go. If you have one, they’re the best.
And winter is a real good time to rep your favorite uncle’s favorite fabric. The Beams Plus corduroy shirt is like most others — a robust shirt made for the cooler months — but the part your uncle would get into is that this particular shirt is made from indigo-dyed corduroy and will fade with wear, becoming a unique, well-faded piece of its own, just like he is.
Available for $180 at Oi Polloi.
