Vintage Smoking Robe - Burgundy Velvet

A successful gift!

Item: 008090



A Historical Emporium exclusive!

Slip into our Vintage Smoking Robe in burgundy velvet and feel your worries melting away. A jacket of this ilk was seen on many a 19th century gentleman as he wound down with a pipe, perhaps a drink, and the Daily News.

While today the smoking jacket is an elegant alternative to a formal tuxedo, in the Victorian era this garment served a much more specific purpose in at-home entertainment. Scrupulously dressed 19th century gentlemen (who literally had a coat for every occasion) would don a soft, often velvet, loose jacket over their clothing as a protective barrier from the odors of their smoking indulgences. Plus, it would provide winter warmth when they were banned to the smoking porch by the ladies!

Our more contemporary interpretation of the perennially hip smoking jacket is the longer velvet smoking robe. It features a rich dark burgundy velvet body with a black quilted velvet shawl collar and cuffs. A long single velvet tie keeps this robe closed. Three black velvet trimmed front pockets, two at the waist and one at the breast lined in satin for an opulent touch, offer ample storage for smoking necessities. No interior pockets. Robe measures approximately 40" in length and the tie measures approximately 43" long in a Large.

Imported. Made from soft velvet fashioned from 80% Polyester and 20% Rayon with a polyester lining. Professionally Dry Clean only.

A successful gift!
It's still new, so I can't speak to how it will hold up, but my husband loves it! I appreciated the service I received when I called, too; the staff was able to answer my questions to help me make a selection. My husband had asked for a bathrobe for Christmas, which I did purchase, but then I discovered the existence of smoking robes, found this site, and surprised him with this. As a matter of fact, while the nice flannel bathrobe would have been more practical in terms of care/laundering and ability to use in more seasons, my husband elected to return it because he loves the smoking robe so much that he thinks he'll only really use it. It was a success - a gift with panache!
