    Not the traditional velvet, no, though I've seen a lot of older smoking jackets selling that are made from that fabric - mostly 60s, and typically the 'lounge around the house' style rather than blacktie-with-friends.
    If in doubt - overdress.

    I can't picture a corduroy smoking jacket. Any pix?

    Edward, I'm not sure how vintagesque the jacket is, but as one who likes corduroy I like that jacket. It looks as if it would be comfy and sort of rural sheik....
    No matter where you go......there you are.

    I sort of like it but think it looks more like work wear than a smoking jacket. The reversible side is god awful.

    Gads, what a mind bendingly annoying website.
    Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.

    Isn't it just! They seem to have grasped that "more pictures = good," while failing entirely to provide any picutres that are actually useful!!!

    I think I'm going to pass on this one - I actually rather like the lining on them, but I'm not convinced by the overall cut, I think (what I can make out from the photos anyhow...). I may just keep an eye out for one of those traditional Chinese jackets as an affordable alternative to a real smoking jacket for now...

    I have a burgundy National brand corduroy smoking jacket from the late '30s. Double breasted, belted, no buttons, burgundy satin lapels. It was done, just not like that.

    I almost bought one of those a year or two ago when I was still smoking cigars and pipes. (one of these days I should sell the cigars in my humi )

    Pros:
    Reversible (I actually LIKE the reverse pattern)
    Corduroy (I really like corduroy)
    Skull Button (LOVE it!)

    Cons:
    Price
    Cord going in an unflattering direction
    Price
