When a new smoking jacket arrives in from our workroom in Italy I have but an hour with it whilst I check everything off before I dispatch it onto it's final destination. This jacket was off to a customer in Los Angeles and I had but a small window to photograph it's rare beauty. I love to look at smoking jackets. I find I don't wear them that often but I could state at them for hours and I understand why Hollywood has used them to conjure up images of romance or sexuality or higher-living because even though their functional use (smoking) is now frowned upon, their symbolism lives on in people's hearts.
We custom make these jackets and they take roughly six weeks to produce and are made to measurements supplied. If you would like something similar, don't hesitate to contact us on www.lenoeudpapillon.com
