At least I'm the epitome of something

The Wife has drawn my attention to a short article, 'It's the history, man', by Alexis Petridis, in which he observes:

the corduroy suit has to fight against certain preconceptions: it's symbolic of an early-70s Open University professor nerdiness.
No comment.

It's also comfortable as hell.

As a gay guy, it's also kind of sexy. Everybody knows nerd is the new gay archetype (think "construction worker", "Indian chief", "man in uniform", "nerd").

Hang on: There was no nerdy guy in a corduroy suit in The Village People.
