At the starting of the 2nd paragraph we have "Corduroy's link with the good breeding and country living that made it an essential ingredient in the gentleman's wardrobe along with Wellington boots and decent wooly".

Here GOOD BREEDING means RICH & COUNTRY LIVING means POOR, so D is correct.

What is meant by these lines: "I combines the comfortable nonsense appeal of cotton with the perfectly correct luxury finish of velvet".

So, I think option B is correct.
