With a brocade collar and cuffs that exude elegance, this jacket is all about sensuality and luxury. Meanwhile, ‘the continental brocade’ is the perfect cigar smoking jacket - its subtle, swirling pattern and soft, thick belt would look perfect with a Havana and a glass of rum. The range also features a velvet, Bond-style smoking jacket as well as a floor-length golden gown with a bold African print. Designed by Randi Hilleso - whose aunt made fur coats for Hollywood’s pin-up girls throughout the 20s and 30s -these magical creations have been inspired by a life-time in theatre. Randi’s silk jackets are regularly given out as prizes at various Playboy award ceremonies, and have already graced the director’s chair on Broadway.

The Reversible Jacket


This thoroughly modern take on the smoking jacket allows you to maintain a contemporary image while indulging in the extravagance of the traditional printed silk jackets.  It’s the Swiss Army knife of smoking jackets, with its suave yet casual exterior hiding a secret weapon of disco-bright printed fabric that packs a hidden punch. Whether you’re an extravert looking for a touch of look-at-me glamour, or a laid-back chap with a care-free streak, this reversible jacket is made to suit all types of 21st-century cigar-smoking gentlemen. The jacket, which is available in both brown and black, is just one of the many ‘inventions’ dreamed up by San-Francisco-based Betabrand.  Fusing vintage, whimsical clothing with space-age fabrics and outside-the-box philosophies, the brand has a whole range of items that wouldn’t be out of place in an extra-terrestrial fancy dress party. Their smoking jacket is definitely for those cigar-lovers with a sense of fun - especially since customers can send in photos of themselves to be used on the website. So far, the jacket’s been spotted in nightclubs and even at award ceremonies - so could your modelling debut be around the corner?

The Traditional British Jacket

Fine tailoring is the domain of the British - and a gentleman would expect no less. Tails and the Unexpected have been fitting-out distinguished customers since 1979, and have developed a single, signature smoking jacket as part of their collection. Made of burgundy cotton velvet, and lined with high quality bemburg, this jacket is an elegant masterpiece. With quilted black cuffs and lapels made of pure silk, it’s the ultimate luxury smoking jacket, complete with two burgundy tassels hanging from the belt. Hand-picked by the company’s owner and his artist wife, the jacket is part of a wide range of top-quality tailoring offered by the Cardiff-based brand.

The Lucian Pellat Finet Jacket

The designer’s homage to 007, this is a contemporary smoking jacket that any incarnation of Bond would be proud to wear. It’s a sophisticated suit jacket made from a wool-cashmere blend, for the perfect mix of luxury and casual comfort. With a single, front-button fastening, notched lapels and three front pockets, it’s a fresh take on a traditional smoking jacket. For a rock-star twist, the jacket is printed with tiny, barely-noticeable skulls in perfectly-aligned rows, and a skull-printed lining to match.
