Hey guys. Quick question on matching fabrics. I'm planning to wear a blue velvet jacket to prom, and I was wondering if I needed special trousers. I already have a pair of black suit trousers (140s wool). Is it ok to wear those with velvet? Here's the jacket (BOSS 'Hayford', Slim Fit).

It's an Ask a Question kind of post. Anyway, no, special pants fabric not needed and might fight for attention with the jacket if chosen.

Thanks for the response! So I don't need to get tuxedo pants?

The jacket itself technically is a bit incorrect for formal wear* (but fine for a typical prom). Therefore, using regular black wool pants instead of tuxedo pants is fine. *Edit: it's not just the color, but also the flap pockets and two front buttons, but still the jacket doesn't look bad.
