20 of the best velvet jackets

Invest in a velvet tuxedo to back a winner in the festivestyle stakes

The return of 007 has had an effect: the most inevitable of which is the comeback of the tuxedo. Less starchy than the white-tie tailcoat but more formal than a business or lounge suit, it has become the go-to style for parties and events. The key is to inject some personality. This winter, the velvet dinner jacket – in all its Seventies cruise-liner splendour – reigns supreme in rich jewel colours.

Here are 20 of the best.
