Ask the MB: New Year's Party With Black Velvet Blazer

Tartan Trousers via Brooks Brothers, $250.00
Tartan Trousers via Brooks Brothers. $250.00.
Q: What types of shirts and pants combinations can be paired with a black velvet blazer for a semi-formal New Year's Eve celebration?
--Black


A: The shirt is easy: white, pressed, no button-down. If you have one, an evening shirt with studs would be MB. The pants? Hmmmmm ... time is short ... is there a Black Fleece-stocked Brooks Brothers near you? The blazer + the shirt + these subtle tartan pants will definitely get you more than the obligatory New Year's peck on the cheek.
