Brooklyn Tailors Corduroy Suit Jacket and Pants

Your closet may not be overflowing with corduroy suits, but this one is difficult to resist. Both the jacket and pants are well tailored, without looking stiff and the color is extremely flattering. You could wear the pieces separately, but we suggest keeping them together for that contemporary sharp look.
