The ultimate finish to a formal suit, a lapel pin flower to look the perfect gentleman on any outing.
Red Lapel Flower
Flowers have long been used for decoration and celebration for men. If you go all the way back to 2000 B.C. the Aztecs used the brilliant colors of flowers to show their allegiance during warfare; with modern day history regarding the origins of the boutonniere seen with the War of the Roses.
The modern fashion accessory is rumoured to have emerged when Prince Albert and Queen Victoria first married. Their wedding photos were taken a year after the marriage, whereupon she presented him with flowers as a token of her love. Being quite the gentleman, Prince Albert cut a hole in the lapel of his dress coat and inserted the flower, and a trend was born.
