A Historical Emporium exclusive!

Slip in, sit back and relax! Our Vintage Smoking Robe dials back to a bygone era where direct messages were sent verbally to the gentleman seated in a neighboring club chair.

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 purple 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.
