No, your eyes are not deceiving you – that, my friend, is velvet. It certainly surprised my friends when we hit the town this Saturday, but I’m happy to declare that vintage is definitely something the stylish man does not have to leave to his girlfriend.

There are two things about vintage which make it the perfect team player when it comes top your wardrobe – number one, the clothes have been around for a while so inevitably know something about retaining a good deal of wearability; number two, they are likely to be well-made and use great fabric (otherwise they simply wouldn’t have lasted) but will always come at a better price than their modern equivalents.

Of course that doesn’t mean you have to wear velvet. But don’t let me stop you…
