These days, men's formal fashion is a lot more open to different styles and creative twists on tradition. One benefit of that freedom is the revival of velvet as a viable – and desirable – fabric and a way to soften the traditional men's formalwear aesthetic, albeit slightly.
This gorgeous formal black velvet dinner jacket by Mantoni thus serves as a contemporary and trendy alternative to the standard white dinner jacket. Beyond its lovely velvet fabric, it boasts a slim fit tapering, a two button front, a peak lapel trimmed with satin, flap pockets that can be converted to a besom style, side vents, and four buttons on the sleeve. Altogether, it's a stunning exercise in modern style, making it an ideal choice for the gentleman who dresses in embrace of trendiness.
