This season’s fashion has imagination soaring when it comes to cut, colour and cloth. But lest we forget tailoring is the name of this game. The look is fitted, sharp, and masculine, it easy to see why it means business with textured tones of slate, charcoal and pebble being this winters suit palettes.
Cut to the chase of the new season by embracing your inner dandy with a luxurious velvet blazer; the bedrock of every gentleman’s wardrobe. On the right shoulders, this is the equivalent of last winters unstructured cotton blazer and can be worn at both informal and formal occasions. Velvet is a classic that never fails to make an impression and, when combined with immaculate tailoring, it is the optimum of elegance.
Key looks take inspiration from the British military – from front line to formalwear. Burberry Prorsum has fused velvet and military to create this louche double-breasted blazer. This piece hits every nail on the head with its fashion forwardness for the season ahead whilst still remaining pristine in appearance. It is cut for a neat fit with impeccable tailoring which creates a sophisticated silhouette, meaning it can be worn either day or night and, when teamed with a white shirt, is the poster outfit for the new urban dandy.
To stand out at the more decadent of events, pair the blazer with matching trousers and loafers, watching as you ooze luxury. Purchase your velvet blazer to keep you looking sharp from dusk until dawn at Mr.Porter.
