Yes I do smoke cigars regularly and no I probably will not wear it outside the house....but wouldnt rule it out under the right circumstances either. This will be my christmas and new years party jacket. 1968 Huntsman of Saville Row made. Probably overpaid on ebay as there was a few of us after it..but I dont care... I dont think I have been as excited for a piece of clothing in a while. Just look at this jacket absolutely stunning IMHO. Always thought dinner/smoking jackets were very smart looking and now I have my own
Would love to hear thoughts on jacket/quality of jacket and workmanship from those that have an eye for these things. Brian

I'd almost take up smoking again just to wear that bad boy!

Quite nice. I have loved smoking jackets ever since I saw Desi Arnaz in them on "I Love Lucy."

I know, they don't look like pants cuffs on a sleeve. . .

I have always admired Huntsman tailoring. And the fact that this was done in the 60's by a bespoke tailor of the day enhances the appeal to me.

Off course its a bit of a gamle on how it will fit me, I will post a few pics of it on me when I get it.

Love those Padrons, the 1964 Exclusvos are one of my favorites.
