Velvet Revolver star Matt Sorum is confident his styling skills will turn his new clothing line venture into a success - he has been designing outfits for bandmate Slash for years. The drummer has teamed up with designer Max Noce to create the Sorum Noce clothing line. The two friends plan to launch the new venture in March (08), a month before opening a new West Hollywood store on Melrose Avenue. Sorum says he's "always been interested in the idea of rock + roll and fashion," and he's been styling his bandmates for years. He tells, "I designed a leather jacket especially for Slash that has this special pocket for his Gitanes cigarettes and his lighter. And he loves it. "We're going to make that available to buy." And former Valentino and Dolce + Gabbana designer Noce is convinced the fashion conscious will be more than impressed with his partner's creations: "As long as I have known him, he has a tremendous eye for style."
