    I own two pairs of brown cords... (used mainly for work) but I consider myself "young & trendy"

    did anyone say oxymoron?

    Cords, beards, sandals with socks and elbow patches = the staple attire of the art teacher c1970 (possible much later as well).

    oops I utterly forgot about the essentials - socks

    A question to Beeswax though, where is the correct place to put leather elbow patches on trousers?

    I've got a pair of cords. They're from gap and haven't been worn in a while...kinda charcole in colour.

    I'm 20, drink real ale, listen to prog and classic rock amongst other things...it takes all sorts I suppose!
