It's a rare occasion for men to venture out into the fashion world and actually try something new. This season, we're asking men to try the velvet blazer. I already convinced a friend of mine to do it, and I know he won't regret it when he's on the prowl for women. Ladies appreciate a man with charisma, and the velvet blazer gives you just that!
Keep the rest of your outfit understated: The velvet piece should be the standout.
Velvet looks great with jeans, tees, and workwear—don't treat it as something precious.
It's warm enough to slip on in place of a light coat in fall.
Use a lint brush, a steamer, and a professional dry cleaner. Never iron or fold.
If your velvet gets wet, shake it dry and hang it up immediately.
