since college, i’ve always waited until georgia / florida weekend to pull out my cords for the fall. i’m not sure why because it’s usually still hot in jacksonville, but it’s become somewhat of a tradition. this weekend will be no different. i’ve been through a hell of a lot of cords during this time and finally found a favorite: the levi’s 514 cords. they’re a “baby wale” corduroy and fit the same as levi’s 514 slim straight jeans. i appreciate thicker wale cords, but they just don’t look good on me. the best part about these pants is that you can find them at most department stores and they won’t hurt your wallet. they retail for under $65.
