WTF IS    WALE   ?
Well, there are baleen whales, sperm whales, and killer whales, which are actually dolph – oh, you mean wale! Well, that’s easy enough. Corduroy, as you may know, is really a form of tufted velvet, with a gap running between each ribbed cord (or wale). “Wale count” relates to the number of wales per inch. The lower the number, the thicker the wales are, with the actual number varying from anywhere between 1.5 and 21. Generally, a high wale count is more refined and luxurious, while a lower count is sturdier and more casual. Most of the cords men wear these days fall somewhere in the middle – at Bonobos, our dressier Italian-milled Milanese Cords are 18 wale, while our slightly more laid-back 5-pocket French Corders (pictured above) are 14 wale. So, ready to go wale watching? Good. Just grab your cords and jump on board. WTF IS    WALE   ?

WTF IS    TWEED   ?
Pssst. Hey you. Wanna try some killer tweed? Of course! But just what, exactly, is tweed? Well, the short answer is one of the finest fabrics known to man, made famous by a whole cadre of dashing detectives and literary lions.  [[MORE]] The longer answer? Here it goes. Tweed is a sturdy, unfinished woolen fabric constructed with either a plain or twill weave, and often in a herringbone pattern. Although tweed is produced around the world, the ruggedly handsome fabric has a strong association with the United Kingdom and Ireland, and with good reason – that’s where the best tweed in the world is generally milled. The fabric was first produced in Scotland in the 18th century, where a blustery northern climate demanded a sturdier breed of woolen cloth, for leisure class and working man alike.  So are you ready? Good. Because it’s about time you tried some good tweed. And from our Donegal tweed Mulroy blazer, to our Scottish tweed Galloway suit, Bonobos has some great ones to choose from.
