WHAT ABOUT THE SMOKING JACKET

Posted on July 07 2018

EACH OF US HAS OUR OWN STYLE OF DRESS.  I CONSIDER MYSELF TO HAVE A DECENT FASHION SENSE, FOR MY OWN LOOK (I.E. BOW TIES ONLY), THAT I'VE INTENTIONALLY DEVELOPED, OVER TIME, SINCE MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS.

SINCE MAKING CIGAR CULTURE A PART OF MY LIFE, IN MY THIRTIES, THE SMOKING JACKET CONTINUES TO PEAK MY INTEREST.  I'VE RESEARCH THE HISTORY AND VIEWED THOUSANDS OF IMAGES.  ALTHOUGH I AM NOT A FAN OF EVERY VERSION I'VE SEEN, SOME ARE PRETTY FRESH!

WITH ALL OF THAT BEING SAID, INSTEAD OF WRITING SOME REPETITIVE POST ABOUT THE HISTORY OF SMOKING JACKETS, INSTEAD, I CHOOSE TO FOCUS ON WHAT I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THE NEW SMOKING JACKET TO BE.  THESE ARE ONLY MY THOUGHTS, ON THE TOPIC.  MY STYLE.

 

SOME YEARS BACK, I VISITED A LOCAL CIGAR SHOP, TO ENJOY A BOW TIE AND CYPHER WITH MY BUDDIES.  THAT EVENING, I WORE A SIMPLE BOMBER STYLED JACKET.  IT WAS COTTON AND RELATIVELY LIGHT-WEIGHT.  THE ENTIRE EVENING, MY JACKET WAS ZIPPED UP WHILST I SMOKED.

 

WHEN I ARRIVED HOME THAT EVENING, I REALIZED THAT MY JACKET SMELLED MORE OF CIGAR, THAN MY SHIRT UNDERNEATH.  ALSO, THE ASH I DROPPED THAT EVENING LANDED ON MY JACKET, INSTEAD OF MY SHIRT.  LUCKILY, IT DIDN'T BURN.  ALSO, I WAS VERY COMFORTABLE ALL EVENING.

 

I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE BOMBER STYLED JACKET IS THE PERFECT SMOKING JACKET, FOR TODAY'S CIGAR SMOKER.

THEY COME IN ALL FABRICS AND SIZES.  COMFORTABILITY WAS PERFECT, AS WELL.  THE JACKETS TYPICALLY HAVE POCKETS FOR CONVENIENCE, AND THEY CAN BE PURCHASED ANYWHERE.  BOMBER JACKETS CAN STYLISHLY BE WORN WITH EVERYTHING FROM FORMAL WEAR (IF IT'S THE RIGHT ONE), ALL THE WAY DOWN TO JEANS AND SNEAKERS.

CURRENTLY, I AM LOOKING FOR ONE WITH A DOPE PATTERN, TO ADD TO MY WARDROBE.  THE INCLUDED IMAGES ARE A FEW THAT I LIKE.

 

YOU MAY AGREE;  YOU MAY DISAGREE.  ITS OKAY EITHER WAY.  IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN VERSION OF THE PERFECT CIGAR SMOKING JACKET, PLEASE SHARE IT IN THE COMMENTS SECTION, SO THE ENTIRE BOW TIE COMMUNITY CAN GET YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THE TOPIC.  YOU MAY JUST ASSIST ANOTHER CIGAR LOVER AND HELP THEM INCREASE THEIR OWN SMOKING EXPERIENCE.

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.
