Vintage Smoking Robe - Black with Burgundy Velvet


Item: 008095



A Historical Emporium exclusive!

Our Vintage Smoking Robe in black and burgundy velvet is the perfect answer in lounge wear for the questioning gentleman. Spend the evening with a snifter of brandy in hand, bantering about reality, existence, knowledge, and other philosophical issues with your cadre of colleagues.

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 black velvet body with a rich dark burgundy 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.

Merry Christmas to Me!
I have always wanted a smoking jacket or robe and this was the year I decided to treat myself. I love this garment! It makes me happy every time I put it on. Wearing this makes you want to smoke a pipe and sit back with a good book or watch some period murder mystery. It is beautifully constructed, very comfortable, and warm.

I'm sorry to have been impatient about the requirement to confirm a credit card charge. The robe came very promptly and it is so high quality

My husband loves this and I love hugging him in it. The material is so nice to touch and snuggle but also keeps him warm and handsome

If as expected
I am 6'6" so I have long arms so general do not expected things to fit my long arms so this jacket could have been a little longer in the arms but otherwise fit very well

Great looks, so-so durability
This robe looks great, fits well, and it's comfortable in the winter months. But the interior lining tears very easily, even with minimal stress. Every seam on the inside has split somewhere.

Smoking robe
Great quality, got this as a gift for my brother… he loved it, great gift. Classy looking, very elegant and a must have for a cigar connoisseur. Thank you for your service… will definitely buy again.

Since he was a baby, my grandson has always stripped down, curled up in a blanket, and claimed his corner of my couch. It was fine when he was little, but he is a teenager now. When I saw this, I knew it was perfect for him. He has always had a love for super soft, and this is way beyond that. When I showed my husband, and he tried it on, he immediately asked for one for himself. The quality of the workmanship, and the materials is out of this world
