Turn up the swag­ger in a plush vel­vet suit

Esquire (UK) - - Style -

— Ballsier than a smok­ing jacket (and way less cos­tumey), the vel­vet suit has al­ways been the ar­mour of choice for swag­ger-dons. But now that Her­mès and Ber­luti and a few oth­ers are turn­ing out up­dated ver­sions, it doesn’t feel like a stunt any­more. Skip the col­lared shirt, and don’t bill us for any ho­tel rooms you wreck in the process.
