I see them more often on pants, but they're sometimes on shirts too.

BTW, feel free to comment on how cool/ugly they are and whether it should go the way of the dumpster

That looks like seersucker to me, from the picture, which is commonly striped, though there are plaid and check versions of it, too. The traditional seersucker in white with a blue stripe generally has equal width stripes that are wider than shirting stripes and pin stripes.

Personally, I love 'em.

I *hate* the new-type corduroys....they look so different, in my opinion, than the older styles found in the 90's (and before, I'm sure).

Corduroy is a fabric. Usually used for pants, but also for cold-weather shirts and sports jackets as well. I have a pair of low-rise ladies corduroy pants that I just love, about the same color as your pants. The fabric is a very nice corduroy, not stiff or heavy.

It's a great fabric, with many many uses.

Any ideas on what goes good with these besides long sleeved professional sleeves or.. white polos?
