Corduroy Bush Dress

The Corduroy Bush Dress replaced the Cotton Bush Dress in the Fall and Winter of 1985: “Cord du roi is the cloth of kings, but nonetheless we make our corduroy bush dress equally available to women whose blood runs less than blue. Indeed, the most red-blooded adventurer will appreciate its comfort and practicality: the hefty 100% cotton wide wale is a staunch defense against a suddenly plummeting mercury, and there are four bellows pockets for metro tickets, loose francs and cafe receipts. What’s more, the loose, roomy cut of the Corduroy Bush Dress makes it a natural for layering: underneath try a Yukon Shirt or a Flannel Tartan Shirt. A dress for the uncommon commoner who’s ready to cast off her cord du plébe.”
