I have a fantastically patterned, velvet Pucci dinner jacket in turquoise, cream, violet and black that my father bought and wore in the 70's. It's been sitting in my closet for a few years now and I had the impulse to wear it on New Year's Eve. Unfortunately, I discovered that the sleeves are over an inch too short (it's being tailored now). But I also realized that I had no idea how to wear it. The cut of the jacket is fairly timeless and conservative. Peak lapels, unvented, conservative proportions. The lapels are velvet, not grosgrain. I wish I'd taken a picture before I dropped it off at the tailor but I can do that later.
So how does one wear this kind of thing? With tuxedo trousers, a formal shirt and bow tie - or is there another conventional way to wear a velvet jacket?
edit: Ok I found a similar jacket online. Mine is a different color scheme but the pattern is pretty much the same:
