Velvet Por Homme

This year, we are seeing more and more variation within the clothing industry and one fabric that has made a real impact lately is velvet. Velvet is a really extravagant fabric which oozes class and wealth. I immediately associate it with the upper class, but with this comes the stigma of it being “stuffy” or old. This is not the case however as we can bring it bang up to date with the right surrounding pieces. Velvet is present in a lot of the new collections this year, but you will find the best examples in formal wear such as: Lined shoes, ties & bow ties, blazers and waistcoats. Velvet has made its way back onto the runway but not every man feels comfortable going with a velvet suit. If you want to stay fashion forward without jumping to deeply into the trends, consider getting a blazer or suit jacket with a velvet lapel or add a velvet trouser to your tweed blazer.
