GUYS BUYS: The Gentleman In The Velvet Blazer

A lot of guys probably see a Velvet Blazer and say "nah, that's not for me."

Well you are WRONG! It is for you! You just have to make sure you are buying the *right* velvet blazer.

To be safe, here are some rules:
1. Stay away from any velvet that is not brown or black. I don't know why, but velvet blazers in other colors just won't make you look as good as a dark brown or black velvet blazer will.

2. No weird designs or embellishments. I.e., don't pick up a velvet pinstripe blazer.

3. Wear a collared button down shirt underneath it that has a pattern. If you wear a solid, you will scream "HELLO! MY NAME IS ____ AND I'M WEARING A VELVET BLAZER!" And the whole point of this is for no one to even notice that your blazer is velvet. Stick with gingham or a thin pinstripe.

4. Say to yourself "if this blazer wasn't velvet, would I buy it?"

You don't have to follow these rules. This is just a jumping off point for those boys who are a bit hesitant to enter the world of velvet. If you do it right, more than one lady will notice, and who doesn't like to get noticed by some stylish ladies?
