FASHION ESSENTIALS: The Smoking/Velvet Jacket
Want to know what’s pimp and rock and roll all over? Velvet jackets.
Velvet jackets have developed over time with humble beginnings as a “smoking jacket”. Smoking jackets were used to prevent regular dinner jackets from smelling like smoke when men of liesure smoked cigars.
Now, velvet jackets are the optimal choice when you want to add a little style to your “ready-for-battle” night gear.
Don’t believe me? Next time you see one at the store, try it on and take a feel. The ghost of Jimmy Hendrix will take over and you’ll want to set fire to your guitar while drinking a martini. The almighty himself will come down from the heavens and brush that dirt off your shoulder too.
So money. And trust me, you’ll know it.
