We heard through the grapevine, aka We Are The Market, that members of The Corduroy Appreciation Club would be holding another one of their clandestine meetings this week. The gatherings are obviously bi-annual affairs, since 1/11 and 11/11 are the only two dates on the calendar that truly represent and resemble the grain of this wondrous fabric. Past keynote speakers have included Vahram Mateosian (respected tailor and costume designer of The Royal Tenenbaums) and writer Jonathan Ames, and this month Sloane Crosley is headlining. To be honest though, we're holding out for November 11th, 2011, that golden summit when all the stars will be aligned and—if we have our way—cord devotee Wes Anderson will take his turn on the podium (he recently admitted to the Guardian, "I rely on corduroy."). If the folks at Style Salvage are anything to go by, Anderson's new movie, Fantastic Mr Fox is about to be a full-on homage to the woven and waled. Info for the next top secret meeting is after the jump. We only hope that this little dude is in attendance too.
