    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.

    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.[​IMG]

    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.[​IMG]

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