Ditto - I have the same kind - Mine is too thick to wear in the summer Smile So, it's a winter-smoking-jacket.

I get to use the fire place about once a year if I'm lucky here on the coast but I love it when i sit in front of a warm fire on a cold night with my robe and a full pipe.

Hehe! I built myself a quasi-man cave by putting a cloth covered gazebo on the deck. Now I'm building a patio where I'm going to put a fire pit. I look forward to the cold weather so I can sit outside and smoke in my smoking jacket. Smile LOL

Indeed; my normal late night smoking jacket is a bathrobe as well!!! Around 1975 my wife bought me a nice dark brown lightweight robe with blue dots as the design, and said I should use it as my smoking jacket in my den. While it was quite nice, it was also made of polyester, so you know what happened everytime a piece of hot ash spilled onto the robe: a hole!! That's why my "smoking robe" now is cotton !!!

A smoking jacket only counts if you have the “Old Money” ‘ New Port RI estate to go with it...

Don't have any old money Very Happy But I do have an old smoking jacket made of pure silk that belonged to my father in law from the 1940's.
And I have worn it on special occasions, the last time was a New Year's Eve Party.

A great keepsake for sure! I do know they are not easy to come by these days.

Now that is one fine smoking jacket! I don't really have one myself. I've got a couple of sweaters that I like to wear in the winter that I smoke in, but nothing in particular that goes with a pipe full.

My friends got me this for my birthday last month. I think they meant it as a gag gift, but what the hey. My house can get a bit chilly in the winter and it sure beats my ratty old bathrobe. I think I'm almost old and eccentric enough to get away with this look. Now I just need an ascot. And maybe a monocle...

Sharp.

I use a fluffy Billabong zip-up hoodie jacket. It's a little youthful looking for my general taste, and like most things made these days, it's a piece of crap. It has lots of pockets and gets the job done, though!

I'd love to get a proper smoking jacket.

On a side note, Kyle, that just happens to be the Nording I found after you spurred me to search for The Lost Kaplan Pipes. Stem could still use some work, I see. Damn camera flash shows all our imperfections. Embarassed

Too cool! I want one. And you are correct, Sir; a monocle is a must to complete the look!

Cool! I can hope any of my wacky observations might lead someone down a path that makes 'em happy!

You do, in fact, need a monocle. Cool

I have a jacket that I only wear for smoking. When I'm having a tough day just walking by where it hangs and get a whiff of the aroma can put a smile on my face. It is funny, that whenever I am seen by family wearing that jacket, they all know what I'm off to do (or returned from).

My wife is German and NOT fond of artificial heat. So our winter thermostat is set at about 60. I have a cardigan sweater I wear for smoking during the cooler months. It has two pockets that I use for a tamper, lighter and a paper towel that I use for wiping off pipe cleaners. (Yes, I'm cheap. I use cleaners at least three or four times each.) I guess the cardigan qualifies as a "smoking jacket". I got it several years ago at a thrift store for about four bucks. Great investment.

I also have a vest I use during the summer. regardless of the season I need two pockets to hold my smoking accoutrements.

Happy Puffs! Wink
