The iconic Smoking Jacket. I have long wanted one, but trying to figure out how to pull it off in the right setting seems to be a bit tricky. The smoking jacket has been a traditional evening jacket dating back to the 17th century. Over the years it became synonymous with fine cigars, sipping cognac or your favorite bourbon and enjoying good conversation from the comfort of your mansion.
During the past few years the smoking jacket has come of age. It is no longer reserved for after dinner relaxation and yukking it up with your butler. It is making its way into formal nights out on the town and festive holiday parties with friends and family. A great substitute for the traditional black tie wardrobe, the smoking jacket is now not only in style but maybe even becoming the norm.
Regardless of the fact that a well fitted velvet smoking jacket is the coolest jacket you might ever wear, there is no denying the usefulness that it still performs when it comes to enjoying your favorite churchill.
