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!
We offer a full line of authentic vintage style smoking jackets in velvets and brocades, as well as an assortment of modern velvet blazers perfect for entertaining and dressing to impress.
Top off your lounging wardrobe with one of our vintage smoking caps.
