Default Re: School me on smoking jackets

I actually have a few of them. I have one from the 50s waist length (brocade, real wool fleece lined similar to the one in the picture above)) one from the 60s waist length (looks like something from Sgt. Peppers album) one from the 70-80s full length (silk) and one a bit newer...cotton full length, fake fleece lined. I'll try and get some pics up. The full length silk is great in the summer...especially with nothing on underneath. Feels great on the skin. The 50s is great for outside, cool weather. It is rather gaudy. The 60s one is CRAZY. I'm not sure if it has palm leaf pattern on it, or pot leaf pattern on it. It also has dangly tassles on the button holes. I never wear it..just a great conversation piece.

I do want a black or brown velvet one to complete my "set".

Wife's sister is a fashion designer...both asian. So they have an "eye" for these types of things.

Well first I thought if his wife's sister is asian, I sure hope his wife is asian too. Then I thought of how much I'd like to meet his wife's sister. THEN I thought about the custom smoking jacket

I have never seen one in person before, but I assume it has a long tradition. The coolest one I saw was from a B&M in NYC. It was an older Fire Department Jacket (the kind with relflection cloth, that firefighters wear).

I want a smoking jacket and a pan flute. Then I'm going to make everyone call me Zamfir. Except in the evening, in which case it will be proper to call me Loretta.

I think a CA smoking jacket would be rather cool. I have a smoking jacket of the robe type that I wear in the house as I think I'd look like Hef if I were to wear it out. I want to get one of the blazer style ones when I get some money that isn't dedicated to box purchases

Ok...I've just contacted my better smelling half to put the feeler out to her sister to see if it's possible to do CA jackets.

Bear in mind, these will each be individually handmade, so I'm not sure of cost.
