Turn up the swagger in a plush velvet suit
— 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.
