Small wale corduroy. Corduroy is the quintessential cool-weather fabric and comes in a variety of weights and colors. The width of the cord is commonly referred to as the size of the “wale,” or number of cords per inch. The lower the wale number, the thicker the width of the wale. This is a luxuriously soft fabric in a vibrant raw umber color. Tunic length. Two front pockets.
