A Historical Emporium exclusive!

He retreated to the study, the Evening Post tucked under his arm, to check on the ups and downs of the day’s rickety financial market. Wearing our Vintage Smoking Robe in Red Velvet, his sophisticated style was always steady and spot-on, unlike the wrinkled and weary blokes down at the bank.

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 red 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.

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