This yellow carnation has a diameter of 2.75" - 6.5 cm. We also offer a mini carnation in yellow here.

The Boutonniere

A boutonniere 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 stars 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!


Yellow Life-Size Carnation

Carnations are very classic boutonniere flowers especially for black tie and white tie events, but combined with a dark suit, they look just as stunning. Likewise, a carnation makes for a great companion to a topcoat or overcoat. This yellow carnation is carefully crafted from hand dyed silk, and something you will not find anywhere else. Once it is on your lapel, everybody will think it is a real flower. While the most common carnations are red or white, yellow is likewise classic but usually worn by more stylish individuals who want to add a personal note to their outfit. Most people enjoy a set of all 4 colors, so take a look around the store. If this yellow carnation is too large for your tastes, we also offer a smaller version of the same flower here.  


What is so special about the Fort Belvedere  Life-Size Yellow Carnation 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 to 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 This 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.


How to Wear this Boutonniere Through the Buttonhole?

Ideally, your jacket should have a stem keeper. We explained here how you can make one and how a boutonniere should be worn.
