Old-Money Velvet Coat
You were not legacy’d into the Metropolitan, the Carbon Studio or the Century Club. Your great-grandfather was not in attendance opening night when Henry Kendall Thaw gunned down Stanford White during the final act of Mam’zelle Champagne. You would not be afforded eight courses and champagne while on Murderers’ Row.
These are the things afforded to old money. Fear not, this velvet sport coat is just the old world luxury you need to indulge in the ballyhoo of privilege.
Velvet is your plush canvas to be celebrated with printed shirts and eye-popping raw silk ties. I recommend wearing nice jeans, or a pair of grey pants (no velvet pants, suits are an entirely different animal).
You need a pair of exquisitely distressed Balmorals or similar. Chelsea boots will do. Distressed and falling apart are not the same thing. If unsure, invest in a new pair. Finally, you must become involved in some elaborate subterfuge involving politics, love triangles, high society, and bribes.
