Usage examples for Corduroy

Even when she employed men to repair the strip of "corduroy" road between the bridge and the fork, it was impossible to keep the bad places firm enough for any car heavier than a Ford to travel over them....
"Frying Pan Farm"
Elizabeth Brown Pryor
In a corner of the seat was a very small deal trunk, tied round with a scanty piece of cord; and on the trunk was perched-his lace-up half-boots and corduroy trousers dangling in the air-a diminutive boy, with his shoulders drawn up to his ears, and his hands planted on his knees, who glanced timidly at the schoolmaster, from time to time, with evident dread and apprehension.

Famous quotes with Corduroy

  • After all we did for Britain, selling that corduroy and making it swing, all we got was a bit of tin on a piece of leather.
    George Harrison
  • I got my wife breast implants for her birthday. I've never been a big fan of plastic surgery, but I gotta admit, I've had a lot of fun playing with these things. I haven't given them to her yet... I just keep 'em on my tour bus and just rub 'em in my face...I'm glad they clean up easy. WHAT?! I'm just glad they are not made out of corduroy, that's all I'm saying! I'd have to have 'em Scotchgarded. I find it a little ironic that the product that I use to keep from ruining my sofa should spill my drink on it is actually called...Scotch-guard. Sometimes, things just work out perfect, don't they? "Yeah, I'm looking for a product that'll protect my sofa should I spill my Scotch on it. What'd ya have?" "We've got Scotch-guard." "Yeah, let's go with that. Do you have Vodka-guard? How about Sperm-guard?" .
    Ron White
