Wearing flowers in your lapel hole

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I've taken to wearing flowers in the lapel hole and it really works wonders on having women stop you on the street. For anyone looking to find a special lady, I'd suggest starting this practice. Do any of you wear flowers?

A few questions, this sounds like a lovely idea.

-What kind of flower do you wear?
-Do you just buy them at the florist?
-How do you keep the flower from wilting through the day?

I would love to see pics of this. I'm trying to picture this and adopt it but I really need the visual...and my gut tells me I probably should be careful about what PS I would wear if I did this.....

I guess the Captain Peacock reference was inevitable.

I would wear one once or twice a month - generally to the track

This sounds like a very nice way to brighten your day. I'm interested as well.

Have one made to match your suit. Guaranteed to attract a number of at least puzzled glances.

I lol'd when I saw that the buttonhole was two inches above the flannel rose^^.

It's a very high gorge- to wear the flower in the hole would perch the thing up on the shoulder. Besides, it's a flannel flower and you're put off by the buttonhole? Sheesh.

I often wear mini carnations or wild roses from my garden in the summer.
