Velvet"s never really gone out of style. From pre war black tie, through Roger Moore in the Persuaders, it"s been with us. The cloth in this jacket comes from Italy"s Pontoglio and I honestly don"t think there"s a finer mill. The nap is so fine and beautiful to the touch and gives this blue an almost electric iridescence. Where it with a crisp white shirt open at the neck, good jeans and a snappy pocket square.
