Guys, would you wear velvet like Big B?

Amitabh Bachchan kicked off the season premiere of Kaun Banega Crorepati 4 last night with a song-dance-monologue performance, wearing a velvet suit, among other outfits designed by Vikram Phadnis. The suit had a crest of sorts over the left breast pocket and on the back, in what seems to be zardosi work.

(FYI, in the quiz show Amitabh Bachchan will be wearing bespoke Ravi Bajaj suits).

Noteworthy: Mr Bachchan has worn velvet earlier. Last week, he walked the ramp for Karan Johar and Varun Bahl at HDIL India Couture Week in a long black double breasted coat with a high velvet collar.

Seinfeld’s George Costanza once said, “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.” Seems like his time has come.
