“Corduroy is the type of fabric that has parallel, lengthwise cords or ridges. The word is derived from the French word for “Cord of the King.” Originally made of cotton, the fibers of the fabric are normally twisted as they are woven.” WiseGeek

“Camel hair is a type of cloth made from pure camel hair or a blend of camel hair and another fiber. The outer protective fur (guard hair) is coarse and inflexible and can be woven into haircloth.

Outerwear made of camel hair has been in vogue for many decades, and the trend is likely to continue.
