    So, long story short: my wife and I traveled to Toronto this past week to attend my company's annual Christmas party. It's a formal affair and as such I'd packed appropriately - MTM suit, cap toe oxfords, french cuffs, etc. - the unfortunate part was that the airline lost my luggage and so I had to scramble to assemble an appropriate outfit on a limited budget. Now I really don't want anyone's opinion as to what I "should have done" because quite frankly I've already "done", what I would appreciate however are any photo examples of velour odd-jackets in action. Yes, that's what I ended up with; a nice-fitting, single-button, notched-lapel black velour odd-jacket, worn with grayish pants, white shirt, silver tie and deep deep burgundy [almost black] shoes...and it looked good. However now I'm left with a velour jacket that I'd like to get some use out of, and am turning to the fine folk of SF to lend a hand.

    So who's going to start..........?

    Cheers! :)

    Did they make that Velour jacket expressly for me? Am I the only guy that's ever been foolish enough to buy one?

    Seriously, someone must have some pics they'd like to share. Anyone?

    No pics but velour jackets look great with plaid trousers.

    That's a good thread - thanks - I also now realize that I've been calling it a velour jacket when it is velvet ( doh! )
