Smoking Jackets

I was wondering how many people use a smoking jacket? What kind to get? And if anyone has a good place to get them from?

Nope. 'Fraid I don't have that much class. I just smoke in whatever old t-shirt I got on.

I remember on sitcoms when I was a kid, some stuffy old dude was always breaking out the (british accent on) smoking jacket (british accent off).

Check out Ebay

keep in mind what some sellers think are smoking jackets are just robes.

Because wearing a T-shirt that says, "I'm a Pompous Ass" is too obvious.

A smoking jacket is designed to protect one's fine, handmade clothing from the ash and odor associated with enjoying a cigar.

I always thought that smoking jackets were for pipe smokers and their purpose is to keep the stinky smoke smell off of your regular clothes. A pipe stuck in a pocket really reeks.
