So I'm going to get them hemmed at some point. Not sure what to wear them with though. I don't think I could wear the whole suit as an ensemble, but I wonder what people might recommend combining with purple velvet, slim-fitting trousers. I'm at a loss! I guess I could just restrict myself to wearing the whole suit, but it might look a bit Austin Powers!

Or you could just masquerade as an acrobat named Trixie.

Maybe a velvet jacket for going out at night, but I`m not sure about velvet pants. Maybe they work, but I probably won`t buy them any time soon.

I love velvet jackets, though I realize that this has been the in fashion item for several years. By the way, do you see them retreating from the mainstream in the near future?

I had a black pair of pants, which I later sold. They seem like to add a bit of unwanted bulk to the legs, even though I am fairly slim. Also, what do you put on top? A slim dress shirt I suppose. they seem a bit weird with wool sweaters. Too much texture on top and bottom. The tweed jacket looks good though.

I usually put a slim merino or cashmere sweater on top.
To slim the pants, you have to buy thin velvet, that way you only have the shines and no bulkiness.

I had a pair of burgundy velvet trousers that everybody loved. They were so much fun to wear. I remember wearing them with heavily textured shirts and jackets.

I was in Zara in London today and they have a pair of slim black velvet trousers, cut the same as their slim jeans. They're kind of bulky around the hips on me and for £50 I can think of better things to buy, but a cool idea. There's a ring of silver glitter fabric (?) around the waistband which I liked, and there's a Dior style dart on the back pocket without the Dior fit.

All things considered, I still might buy them.

I'd go for it as well.

I have a pair of black velvet. I actually picked them up at H&M on mad sale for like 10 euros. At that price, why not. Took them home and the fit is great, very slim flat front. Wish all my trousers fit that way.

Anyways, I only wear them out at night.

And I will confirm chicks love them. Girls are about textures and tactile things. Absinthe bar, Amsterdam, one girl rubbing my freshly shaved head, another rubbing my velvet trousers....

Helmut Lang made some pretty awesome washed velvet cord-like jeans. Can't hate that. I would wear slim non pressed velvet pants, but I don't see myself in a velvet jacket.

this is very true, no matter the background, education level, flirtatiousness, etc. of the girl. Very well put. No stripes. Get texture in wool and cotton.
