Smoking Jackets Custom Ordered
Above is one of our smoking jackets that we are doing made to order only. The colours can be changed to have a contrasting shawl and cuff with the body. You may order traditional frogging with velvet body or you can have quilted satin silk all over. It's made to order so we need you to have yourself measured at home. We suggest measuring with a jacket on. The key measures we are looking for are the length you require (usually the same as what you might have on a blazer), the sleeve length, your chest, your waist, your arms. Mostly our smoking jackets are made to wear at home in a comfortable manner whilst watching the news and potentially, if anyone still does it, smoking a pipe or a cigarette. As many of you know already, smoking jackets are derived from the Orient and were used after dinner when the men adjourned to another room to smoke a pipe by the fire after removing their dinner jackets. It's function is merely to be a jacket which it was okay to ash on as opposed to your dinner jacket. It's not a replacement of a dinner jacket, but merely something to use before or after dinner for the purposes of lounging.
We've been fielding a lot more enquiry for them of recent, so much so that this could be a new trend. Here's hoping that it does become one because they are visually so pleasing to see. See our current range here
