Hello, I am looking at purchasing a burgundy velvet dinner jacket for a Christmas party I'll be hosting this year (it's meant to be a somewhat formal affair, but still a relaxed atmosphere and fun for everybody). I came across a burgundy velvet shawl collar dinner jacket in my size from Suitsupply, but noticed that unlike most dinner jackets I'd seen the lapels were velvet like the rest of the jacket, as opposed to a satin or grosgrain facing. Is this still acceptable or must lapels on a velvet dinner jacket be faced and contrasting? I've attached a picture of the jacket in question.
