    Desperately searching for a good "formal" smoking jacket. Do they even make them anymore?

    Check consignment stores.  I bought a burgundy smoking jacket, excellent condition, for $28 a few weeks ago.

    There are other threads on this topic.

    Turnbull & Asser makes them with frogs. Kiton makes them without.

    I make them. I also have a green, with a green silk shawl collar, that I have used for display purposes. It's a 42" chest.
