Cords
« on: March 21, 2013, 09:34:00 PM »
So I have been to a lot of wholesale locations and re-sellers or whatever after I learned that shops aren't bringing in anymore cords since the demand for them is down due to them being a more out of style. I just want to know, where to find a good selection of cords and not those like extra slim ones. Thank you, Slap.

this is true, but i'd buy them a size or two big.

jcpenny has their own brand, st johns bay, really good cords, many colors, stretchy, and real cheap, picked some up for $10, fit isnt slim at all. i've also found some solid volcom cords for cheap online.

Levi's I think 509 or 501s are pretty killer. Jc penny has em. I don't give a fuck, I still rock cords.

Edit. 505 straight fit. Not too baggy not too tight. Brown and navy baby.

Hah I remember a few years back when everyone was rocking cords. I don't see too many people rockin' em these days, everyone is on the Dickies/chino tip now.
As for good cords, Levi's makes some decent ones. I had a pair that lasted me forever. Not sure what happened to them, but if I could find them I'd rock em again. I think they were 514's, not sure.

i stopped buying cords because they rip too fast on me. no cord pant held up more than one or two months on me. h&m had cords with a good 501 like fit, but they are much slimmer now...

I used to have these and they were amazing. The 514 cords are the best fit.

Just throwing this out there, in my experience, cords stretch and don't stretch back, leaving them baggier than they were when you first got them, if the fits you find are too skinny.

I had a dark brown pair of Levi's that were my favorite pants to skate in. They're so comfortable and I loved how they looked after they were worn down a bit. I need another pair

I'd always go to JCPenny in the winter to look for Levis 559 cords.  I think they usually only sell them during the winter.  You may have to check with Levis, or your local Pennys.  These here...

I remember going through a place that was littered with cords. I think it was called the 1990s you should try there. 
This isn't the 90's anymore. ESPN, Nike and Mountain Dew are Big Brother, Es and beer. Time to slip into some comfy New Balances and head towards old age.

These are fucking legit. I've had a few pairs.

Same here. The fit is a little slimmer than Levi's and show your bulge... But in all seriousness I'm backing Levi's cause they are a little more comfy.

I've always enjoyed Levis cords a whole lot. You can find them pretty cheaply at department stores in various fits and colors. I personally fuck with khaki, brown, and gray. I bought probably three or four pairs of Levis 511 cords (that fit like 514s for some reason. they're much baggier than the 511 denim, but they're comfortable as fuck) for around $30-$40 altogether at JC Penny's.

Fourstar, Slim straight 17 inch leg opening, soft and durable as all hell.
They may look slim in the photos but like previously said they expand when worn alot.

cHords are a fall release. wait another 9months and you will find a good pair. just get some light chino's.. Don't use scissors to make "chorts" either when cut-offs are a warm trend again.

Also you mall-shoppers need to step your game up from Gap to Banana, B.R. shit fits a million times better for skinny folks year round.
