February 11, 2010

Satin Lapels 

A satin lapel is the modern definiton of a tuxedo. However, this one detail does not classify a suit as a tuxedo – there are other elements that make up a tuxedo

There are many ways that you can spruce up a formal black suit with satin. You can create a wide or skinny satin border or do a solid satin lapel. The addition of black pique stitching could also create an interesting detailing on the satin.  Velvet would suit a wool that lacks sheen.
