Don’t be afraid: how to wear a velvet jacket
Equip yourself for the party season with a strokeable tux and make a statement at those black tie events.November 2, 2015
Scientific evidence has found that, when wearing a velvet dinner jacket, men feel 58% more debonair*.
The weight, the structure and the sheen create a feeling of sophistication and luxury. Velvet adds instant elegance to your look and gives you some serious ‘strokeability’ – always a handy weapon at parties.
A few points to remember: Look after the jacket – velvet can be a fragile creature.
Secondly, you don’t need too much going on elsewhere. Keep the rest of your outfit understated and let the jacket do the talking. Yes, you can wear it with a shirt and tie if you’re heading to a fancy bash, or go rock star and dress it down with a fitted t-shirt.
Lastly, the velvet jacket is a party animal so only bring it out after dark.
