”They come runnin’ just as fast as they can…Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man….”
Regardless where, when, or why the boutonniere originated, we’re happy it did. Boutonnieres help take the guys’ ensembles to the next level, and are a great way to express individual style. The only challenge with them is the actual process of putting them on. But have no fear, we are certified pros at pinning these bad boys on and are always happy to help!
The boutonniere should always be placed on the left lapel, parallel to the edge outer seam, and right in the middle of the two seams. Usually, it’s about four inches below the shoulder.
Put the pin through the back of the lapel, going away from the chest. Just be sure you put it through the thickest part of the stem to ensure stability so that your flower doesn’t fall over, or flop down. If you pin too low on the stem, the weight of the flower will cause it to fall to the side, which will look way too sloppy in photographs.
