Not Another Black Suit...

   If you have a limited number of suits like me, wearing the same suit over and over again gets boring very quickly.

   It was a process finding a suit to wear to the wedding I’m attending. Even though the black suit is a staple in any wardrobe, I wanted to switch it up from the norm. I found this black velvet blazer from Ralph Lauren and it is the perfect piece to set you apart from the rest of the black suit crowd. Maybe its just me, but an all velvet suit is tacky, so I broke up the suit by wearing black tapered pants from Topman, a regular white button down from Calvin Klein and ditched the tie. Since it is spring, I wore black velvet slippers from Del Toro to compliment the blazer. The pants were tailored perfectly to fall correctly on the slippers and give me a clean look overall.

   Below are some alternatives to the blazer and slipper. What do you guys think of a velvet blazer? Would you rock it?
