About The Boutonniere

A flower on the lapel is the epitome of elegance in menswear or more simply spoken: the icing on the cake. Superbly dressed gentlemen including royals, politicians and silver screen start such as the Duke of Windsor, Prince Charles, JFK, Douglas Fairbanks, or Fred Astaire wore them with grace and even decades after their death they are still admired for their elegance & taste in dress.

Although particularly popular at weddings, the lapel buttonhole flower is perfectly suitable for daywear in summer & winter with suits, sport coats & morning dress as well as in the evening with velvet jacket, tuxedo & tailcoat.

Fresh boutonnieres are beautiful but wilt easily and are difficult to find. In order to change that, Fort Belvedere developed a number of boutonnieres that are finely crafted by hand to look as authentic as the original. Moreover, it will never wilt and always looks as if it was just freshly cut!


White Phlox

If you find the Lily of the Valley boutonniere too formal, the White Phlox is a beautiful alternative for wedding suits. However, it can be perfectly combined with all kinds of other garments, including overcoats and tuxedos. If the white carnation is too generic for you, the White Phlox is your flower of choice because it harmonizes with the same kind of clothes.


What is so special about the Fort Belvedere  White Phlox boutonniere?

  1. It is entirely made by hand of custom colored & hand-dyed silk petals
  2. Authentic look - most manmade boutonnieres look fake from 10 yards away and even more so up-close. Fort Belvedere boutonnieres were modeled after existing flowers with great attention to detail in order to recreate a natural, authentic look. We tested them and people always thought they were real.
  3. Made to be worn through the buttonhole - nothing looks more disgraceful than a boutonniere pinned to the lapel with a safety pin. Fortunately, these boutonnieres are designed just like real flowers to be worn through the buttonhole of your lapel.
  4. Size & proportion - often, inexpensive pins on boutonnieres are gigantic and simply overwhelming. Men of taste have always opted for smaller sized boutonnieres that allow you to wear a pocket square as well without looking overloaded.
  5. Threaded Wire Stem - the threaded wire stem provides you with some flexibility just like on a real flower, which allows you to adjust the blossom the your taste.
  6. Enduring investment - unlike real flowers, Fort Belvedere boutonnieres will look the same for years to come if you don't abuse them.
  7. All boutonnieres come in the Fort Belvedere green signature gift box, which also serves as a great storage device.

How to Store These Boutonnieres?

Just keep them in the Fort Belvedere gift box when you are finished wearing it and it will be fine. Also make sure not to bend the wire incessantly to prevent it from breaking apart.
