He Wore Blue Velvet | Dobell Menswear

I’ve been trying to find the right velvet jacket for years . . and have always failed dismally! The ones I pick always seem to be a horrible harsh hard fabric and not the soft velvet feeling I’ve been looking for, that’s until now!

Dobell gave me free rein to select a blazer from their massive selection so I thought I’d give the Navy Blue Slim Fit Velvet Jacket a go, and it’s everything I could have wished for! Soft velvet which falls nicely when the jacket is worn.

I like the fact this jacket can be dressed up and down, I could so easily wear a white shirt and wear this to a smart affair then again I can make it smart/casual which I have done in this OOTD, paired with some smart jeans, a roll neck jumper and brogues.

As you can see I have gone for a very James Bond inspired photo shoot here, sports car and all! I hate jackets which make moving difficult and this particularly jackets does the complete opposite! It’s so comfy and movement is not restricted whatsoever.

Who Are Dobell?

Dobell are an online formal wear store for men and boys of all ages, stocking suits and tuxedos to socks and pocket squares. It’s a one stop shop for all your formal wear needs, so perfect for weddings, gala’s or general work wear. My friend is getting married next year so I’m definitely going to be suggesting Dobell for the mens wedding attire.

This particular jacket I am wearing currently has 20% off so is only £79.99, down from £99.99! Which is great value for what you’re getting. Other velvet jackets have cost me over £150 and have all gone back due to the poor quality! But this ones a keeper! I want the Black & Red now!

If you have a special occasion coming up, or simply just want to add to your formal wear collection then check out Dobell Menswear, great quality, affordable and masses of choice.
