Navy & Purple, Bronze & Black and a few others over the years.These cloths were favourites of the Mods and Rude Boys over here (Britain) in the 60's and is the origin of the the term Two Tone.You would struggle to find such bold cloths these...

This is what I'm thinking.Single button, SBPL black wool/silk mix.Light coloured linen trou.White Batiste shirt.So on.

I'm intrigued by Unbel project. and would like to help him if possible. I don't think he will be wearing this for a traditional black tie event so the traditionalists can rest easy.

Tell me about your Velvet number?
