In Detail: Oliver Brown Needlecord Jeans
21 Mar 2016
There are moments when only jeans will do - but it needn't just be classic indigo straight leg jeans you turn to in more casual moments. Here at Oliver Brown we're big fans of needlecord jeans for adding variety and a splash of colour to your weekend look. And here's why: they're timeless, they make great spring alternatives to our heavyweight corduroy trousers, they're supremely comfortable and are available in a rainbow of seasonal and mood-boosting colours. Our five-pocket jeans are made here in England by a specialist manufacturer from a slightly finer needlecord cotton, chosen for its hard-wearing but especially soft finish. The needlecord itself is so soft thanks to it being fourteen-wale rib - the 'wale' refers to the number of ridges per inch, so the greater the number, the finer (and therefore smoother) the corduroy. As with all Oliver Brown items, it's all in the detail. The jeans have a classic, straight leg and are finished with tone-on-tone stitching and an antique brass button. So how to style them? We recommend wearing them exactly the same way you'd wear regular denim jeans. Perhaps a casual cotton shirt, cashmere jumper and tan leather brogues.
