When I think of a velvet suit, I picture a dark-haired Italian walking through the streets of Milan,  Gucci sunglasses covering his brown eyes and a stubble finely groomed to perfection. He's wearing perfectly polished Giordano Dieci shoes and in one hand he nonchalantly holds the handles of his Louis Vuitton bag while the other gleams from the gold Rolex embracing his wrist. His scent is fresh and tempting and produces a trail of suave masculinity as he proceeds to his swanky in-city apartment that's illuminating with modern paintings and glass tables.

CUT! Bringing myself back to reality and there is no reason why a man like yourself can't own the velvet suit either. It's sensuous and  presentable and, as the Autumn Winter 2012 collections showed us, can also be worn with a grungy, bohemian twist. I am especially drawn to the velvet numbers in the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 collection. Worn with printed shirts and scarves, and rounded off with charming broaches, it's a look that's formed to impress.


  1. I am utterly obsessed with velvet so the idea of a man in velvet is irresistible to me. More men in velvet I say! The Louis Vuitton and Burberry Prorsum suits are my favourite, gorgeous.

  2. omg I'm actually really liking velvet suits on guys. I mean I always thought the dresses 90's comeback for girls was cute but for men its surprisingly really good!

  3. genius! Now I need a velvet suit x

  4. Love love love velvet, there's something chic and luxe about the material!
