Ah, this is how you wear velvet, guys! Tailored to your measurements and making it the centrepiece of your ensemble.
I couldn’t find proper full-length pictures, but if you happen to catch that episode 12 of Koffee with Karan’s current season, do take a moment to appreciate the sartorial masterpiece that was Abhishek Bachchan’s royal blue velvet shawl-collar dinner jacket. Starting from the shoulder roll to the sleeve length (note: it’s displaying exactly half inch of shirt cuffs, which is the right amount), everything about this Tom Ford number is just flawless.
Yeah, the jacket fit Abhishek like a glove, but I suppose this is what you get for actually owning the pieces and not just renting them for just an appearance… :-p
And the fact that he kept the rest of his outfit austere, made the jacket shine even more. We want more of this, Messr Bachchan!
Btw, he wore the same look to the 2013 HT Mumbai’s Most Stylish bash – yep, #itscooltorepeat ;-)
