Pick of the Week: Mango Shawl Collar Jacket

mango velvet tuxedo jacket for men

I hate the phrase ‘party season’ that the fashion world has thrust upon is at this time of the year. Yes there might be the typical office party and of course New Year’s Eve but ‘party season’ makes it sound like every other day you have a social event to attend.

Anyway, men there is no reason not to make a statement even if it is 1 or 100 parties you have in your diary. I know if I didn’t have a poorly planned theme to my own office Xmas party then I would be investing in this Mango shawl collar jacket.

The midnight blue colour and slim tailored fit ensures it offers a great silhouette whilst being classically stylish. Harking back to the 1950’s (granted they would have had a wider silhouette) this jacket reminds me of gentleman wining and dining a Hollywood starlet over dinner and drinks before slow dancing into the early hours.

At just £69.99 the jacket is an absolute bargain, and would be sure to impress the date on your arm should you be so lucky.

Pair it either with black or dark grey formal trousers, a slim fit white shirt and a black bow tie for maximum results.
