Dear DMC: No doubt DMC members and fans will enjoy reading a fine article by David Newbury published 11/11/11 in The Independent about the propitious date for corduroy lovers and the joys of corduroy.
David points out that there has been a detachment from the fabric we wear with garments simply covering us rather than bonding with the wearer and that corduroy counteracts this — corduroy stands out. In praise of corduroy David says, “It’s noticeable, soft to the touch and pliable. Its brashness cannot be avoided as it stands out from standard flat fabric, like a future wife at a crowded party. No wonder we fall under its spell. You touch it, it’s sexy.”
