Evening wear: the buttonhole carnationThe silk carnation in the buttonhole of a tuxedo (black tie) or tailcoat (white tie) has almost disappeared from the public consciousness. But there are tireless advocates of classic clothing culture - and here you see them again as a sartorial sign of good taste: the discreet small, the classic and always "correct" medium (our bestseller) and the somewhat theatrical large buttonhole carnation.
According to the occasion
Such a Boutonnière can serve as a conversation starter and lead to interesting conversations on a rather boring evening. It is also not too formal for everyday life and certainly not for opera premieres or state receptions. However, it should be chosen according to the occasion and worn with self-confidence - only then can it unfold its full effect. Maximilian Mogg sums it up humorously: "Meanwhile owner of half a dozen boutonnières from lord of the world I can safely say that I have never trimmed my suits better. One boutonniere is the most beautiful conversation opener in conversations with star lawyers, presidents and curb swallows et cetera pp. How was it possible to dress properly without a silk boutonnière?"
