Item: 005031



A Historical Emporium exclusive!

Poppycock! You can totally pull off a Purple Velvet Vintage Smoking Jacket. Especially one that is so deliciously dashing as this 19th century inspired specimen. Originally purposed for keeping a gentleman warm and preventing tobacco odors from permeating his clothing, a smoking jacket also makes a sophisticated statement in so many other settings

Imagine taking a designated time-out to enjoy tobacco in this handsome habiliment, a luxurious garment with a soft, indulgent nap and unstructured cut for comfort. Additional design features include two exterior pockets, a contrast black velvet collar and lapel with braided trim around collar, lapel and front placket. Bold decorative frog closures add an aristocratic air.

Exterior: 80% Polyester and 20% Rayon. Fully lined with 100% Acetate. Imported. Dry Clean Only. Available in sizes S-4X.

Nice royal purple smoking jacket
For a theatrical production. Nice saturated color, good fit, and nice details. I would have given in a 5 star had the velvet been a better quality but is truly beautiful on stage and works quite well for period shows.

Just plain awesome!
First, why would anyone buy the jacket? Once you get past that let me tell you that the day it arrived, I slipped it on and grabbed a book and hit the Lazyboy. Up here in Michigan the evenings are brutal in the winter and the older one gets, the more so. This jacket was so warm and comfortable. Fit like a charm and so stylish. I'm so pleased with the fit and the quality. well worth the price. It's like going back in time. sometimes that's a good thing!

Greay buy
I purchased this for my husband's birthday, we're both very happy with it. He is size XL with broad shoulders and the XL fits perfectly. The material is a bit thinner than I was imagining but the extra padding in the front ensures it hangs well. The buttons and lapel are very classy. For the price it was a great buy.

Classic Cool
There's nothing quite like a classic smoking jacket. And this one is TOO classic AND classy. I'm so very pleased with the quality, the look, and the sheer awesomeness of this garment. It totally exceeds my expectations. And...the chicks really dig it, too. Bravo!

Pretty much exactly what I wanted.
Nice material, classic look, solid construction, moves well... yeah, it's a lovely piece. And the delivery was pretty much immediate, and I live in deep Alaska, and never get that kind of service. The only down side is that I spent this much on a smoking jacket...

Great fun jacket
The "velvet" and fancy loopholes are so fun. Bought as kind of a gag gift for a friend for his 50th - he loved it!!! Quality is good for the price. So fun and over the top. Purple is vibrant. Also bought paisley ascot with it - great!

Not Happy
The jacket is too stiff and I don't like the button loops.

Vintage Smoking Jacket
Hi to all at Historical Emporium: I'm glad to see you provide a space for comments. For it is something I've always felt is important in improving quality of service and/or the quality of a product. For in the end, it is the customers and/or clients that make a business. The Vintage Smoking Jacket- Purple Velvet is stunning yet elegant. It will turn customer's eyes upon the entry of my new business to be. The only thing I'm not happy about is that the inside lining stiffens up the smoking jacket. The inside lining has a 'crackling' sound as well which, makes it sound not attractive. The appearance on your website gives the smoking jacket a softer yet flowing look and that's what I expected. But I , also, understand that buying off the internet is always taking a risk. So, being very descriptive about a product will help give a larger image of what to expect. Otherwise, I'm 80% happy with the jacket. Thank you for asking for my input.

This was a gift for my brother. Great looking, my brother loved it. I bought my husband a different smoking jacket that was about $20 more, from the same store, and was blow away by the quality of his. Both jackets were incredible unique gifts.

I thought that the jacket quality was ok but fell short of the steep pricetag

Very Low quality
I really wanted to like this jacket. Upon unpacking I have to say that the color is awesome and it really shines. However, as soon as I put the jacket on it was clear that the materials and construction were very cheap. The foam or padding in the shoulders made a "ruffling noise" when it moved, and just the overall feel was cheap and nasty. I returned mine, and true to their word this was easy and no questions asked.
