I'm almost 100% positive its going to be a single rose. So I'm hoping my tailor can do a fantastic job at creating a button hole on the lapel at the correct angle.
Have u used the magnets for the same specific reason? If so if love to hear how u went about using them with a single rose.
Yes. Just have the florist wrap one magnet into the boutonniere with floral tape, which is green and matches the flower's stem. Then put the second magnet behind your lapel. Easy.
"Classic sartorial pundits strongly recommend that all dinner jackets have a working buttonhole on the left lapel for a boutonniere (buttonhole in UK – the literal translation of the French term). Ready-to-wear jackets may have to be taken to a qualified tailor who will know where to locate the hole and how to skillfully add it to the silk-faced lapel. Custom-made formal jackets will also sometimes have a stem holder on the reverse side of the lapel."
(By the way, could you offer a blackwatch tartan in the future?).
