What ever happened to Smoke Jackets ? Nobody can quite figure out where the smoking jacket came from - the silk jackets worn in Chinese opium dens? Originally developed for men to wear during times of smoking pipes and cigars, smoking jackets were waist length and typically made of expensive material, namely velvet and silk, in dark colors like burgundy and forest green. The jackets had turned-up cuffs, button fastenings, and a high, shawl collar.
