hook + ALBERT Small Lapel Flower

Once upon a time boutonnieres were de rigueur, but these days you don’t see many beyond high school prom. Perhaps it’s because purchasing (or plucking) a flower before an evening out feels a little odd. Instead, opt for one of these fabric lapel flowers. Meant for everyday use as well as special occasions, these made-in-New York accessories run the gamut from small and subtle to look-at-me loud.

Interesting

Cool idea, Just wish you could choose the sample color.
I can't really try it on until I get a matching tie.
but, I can't wait.

Not exactly my style
Sampled

I'm pretty traditional when it comes to wearing suits and never cared to have an accent like this product. That being said, I wore it once with a grey sport coat and, while I got a few interesting looks, I had more people come up to comment on it. It ended up being a great conversation starter. Not something I would use all of the time, but an easy way to stand out in a sea full of men wearing the same boring thing.

Not my thing.

I got one of these in my July box. It would work fine and last awhile if I wanted a flower on my suits at all. Its just not my thing.

Nice Lapel Flower
Sampled

In my box this month I received the blue lapel flower, and in looking at the other colors I think I lucked out there. I definitely wouldn't wear it at the office everyday. My girlfriend loved dark blue dresses, so this will be a nice touch to my jacket to compliment her more than anything.

Not for Me

This seems like a great idea, but maybe just a little too feminine for me. My fiance however loved it, so I'll probably wear it a time or two - ha.

fun but not for me

fun product that will definitely dress down a sport coat/suit, but too casual for me.

Not really my thing. Personally can't wear this with a suit , though it'd be great for the casual/artsy type.

Whimsical if that's your thing

I rarely have the occasion to wear a suit so was disappointed to get this, less because of what it is, and more because I won't use it. Definitely would add a dash of whimsy to a traditional suit but the color of my sample would necessitate a matchy-matchy tie so still just a smaller subset of already rare suit-wearing occasions. A little too dandy-ish for me. Overall not my thing.

Can't say I'm impressed with this lapel. Seems a bit rough around the edges. Good idea, poor execution.

Really BB?

I'm disappointed with this item. A flower for a suit? A suit I never wear? Way to read my personal interests on this one. I WILL never use this. I gave to my fiance and she's going to make a headband out of it for our daugther - but she wasn't a fan of the color.
