Description

These mid thigh-length velvet & silk robes are bad ass! Just imagine how luxurious & relaxing life would be if men wore smoking jackets during their morning coffee or evening reading by the fire. Perhaps, that’s an unrealistic expectation since we’re accustomed to our fast lives and easy-wash garments. But heck, who knows – maybe they’ll make a come back!

    That smoking jacket is just so luxurious for relaxing in. ‘Relaxing jacket’ could be the new smoking jacket. Fab velvet fabric
