COLOURS OF VELVET – SUITS AND JACKETS

Velvet really can be a universal cloth. It is a great fabric for evening wear, your wedding or even to be worn casually. Some of our pure cotton velvets give a heavier handle that’s preferred for a more casual jacket. When looking for a luxurious finish, our silk mix and modal mix cotton velvets offer a smoother and more luxurious handle, perfect for an evening event, red carpet entrance or your wedding day. Colours available in the silk and modal mixed velvets are much richer and deeper in colour, are suited for a more luxurious look. The more casual velvet range is available in a wider collection of colours, from white’s to cerise pinks, so you can push the boat out with this colour pallet.

– PARTY TIME AT DE BEERS –

We are loving a touch of Burgundy velvet, which makes a great evening wear colour for parties, styled with black trousers without the satin tape down the outside of the leg. We have finished off this look with a classic button white shirt, self-tie bowtie and skull pocket square.

– VELVET TRIM NAVY DINNER SUIT –

When going to a formal evening suit event, something a full velvet suit is not appropriate. Consider using velvet as a trim, like on this Marc Wallace navy wool and silk fashion dinner suit. We have used a navy silk velvet for the collar, pocket trim and covered buttons. Styled with a white round collar shirt £89, swallow silk navy tie £69 and lion tie slide £24.

– SILVER GREY VELVET –

This silver grey makes a nice alternative to a darker coloured jacket. For an evening event you can style it with black trousers, white shirt and a velvet bowtie. We have styled  this jacket with a navy cotton shirt for a casual look, which can be worn in the day or dressed up for the evening.
