Diane Gilman has a new pant, skinny stretch velvet. Scheduled for the shows on Ssturday. $50. The gray looks nice. Purple, Black, Navy & Red.

 

I think purple would also be a nice velvet color, any jewel tone. Wonder if the dark tones would be magnets for lint? Looking for velvet leggings as another option.

I have Diane Gilman's velvet stretch slim leg pants from about 10 years ago.  Still in great shape and wear them to holiday parties; have them in navy.  They are very slimming and never attract lint.  Perhaps she calls these skinny stretch jeans/pants "new" by changing the name.  They look exactly like the ones I already own.  Perhaps there's a difference in the stretch. I recommend them!

She wore blue velvet wowo... I love velvet but it would have to be black because my tux cat is mostly black but he has fur like a seal and doesn't shed much.

I have a feeling that many men like the look of velvet and/or velour on women.  It's such a luxurious, yet comfortable fabric.  I love velour/velvet, as long as it's not stiff and easy to care for, as some of the items posted here.  .........."She Wore Blue Velvet"...............(song)
