A Traditional Velvet Smoking Jacket With Quilted Silk Lapel
This is a very traditional smoking jacket. A wide shawl lapel with quilted silk, turned back cuffs with matching quilted silk from the lapel, frogging and piping around the lapel and cuffs. I would say that this is one of the most authentic I have seen around at the moment. Of course, Turnbull & Asser make a very beautiful one and so too do most of the Savile Row tailors. This one, however, comes from Milan.
