Maybe I Should Go to Montgomery Wards

 You know what you don't see anymore?  Corduroys.  In the 70s you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting someone wearing corduroys.

Now?  Not so much.  I can't remember the last time I saw an article of corduory clothing in the wild.  

Amazon search brings up some, but not a lot.

I was thinking this because Jame Garner had a great old corduroy jacket in Support Your Local Sheriff.  A 1969 movie with a lotta gun content.  Double barrel shotguns, single action revolvers, lever action rifles.

There's a lot of stuff from the 70's that people wore that has disappeared. Thank bog for that.

The collar on my American Legion jean jacket is black corduroy, but that's about the last place I've seen it. And I had that collar put on custom about 4 years ago by a tailor, because the denim one was wearing out. I may have gotten the idea from the collars on some Carhartt work jackets.
