THE MAKING OF A MODERN ICON

The heroes of the Cordings trouser collection are made in cloths that have been worn by Country Gents and Gamekeepers for over a hundred and fifty years. Still made by Brisbane Moss a Lancastrian mill that has woven traditional fabrics such as moleskin, needlecord and corduroy since 1850. Collectively knowns as ‘fustians’ these cloths are characterised by their tightly packed weave creating a strong, sturdy fabric that is superbly hard wearing and holds shape when tailored.

Cordings are famous for our iconic trouser rail; with over fifty shades, with classics such as navy and olive, as well as the brighter shades that sit so well with tweed. The weight and sturdy structure of these cloths, and their ability to be dyed in rich vibrant colours make them as unique as a Shetland tweed. Our core collection of Corduroys, Moleskins and Needlecord are permanently in stock and are an essential element of the DNA of British country clothing.

Cordings are famous for their wide colour palette in all our classic trousers.
