In general I wouldn't worry about smoke outdoors, on the street in passing. If you live with a smoker or are required to be indoors in an establishment at which smoking is permitted, you are screwed.

Egh, seriously? You are outside; thus, it shouldn't be much of an issue for your "high end/bespoke clothes." I guess you could purchase non-bespoke, but I'm doubting you would be so inclined given you ridiculous and haughty attitude. My suggestion: get over yourself and enjoy life.

As others have said, outdoor encounters should be of little concern, but in other circumstances, perhaps you could get a high end/bespoke smoking jacket.

I feel like a horse's ass in my 'off the rack' bubble.

what do you do with people wearing perfumes or automobiles that emit heavy smogs then? do you assault them with your umbrella or snipe them with your cuff links?

p.s., i would definitely smoke in front of you, just so that when you attack me i could burn cigarette holes on your garment.

My thoughts exactly. You get more dirt on you, from simply walking down the street.
