Gorpcore fashion trend for men
Gap Corduroy Joggers
A look inspired by hikers and nature enthusiasts, the “gorp” in gorpcore stands for the term commonly used for trail mix: Good Ol’ Raisins and Peanuts. The look focuses on functional clothing that incorporates earth tones, quilted fabrics, beanies and hiking style boots, according to Garcia. These joggers have that outdoor-inspired feel and are all about comfort, but with the polished look of corduroy.
Nordstrom Hooded Puffer Jacket
Puffer jackets are another winter fashion statement that happen to be a part of this trend. You can find this style in a range of colors, including navy and olive green, to incorporate into any wardrobe.
