Arthur Payson wrote an article for Cigar Advisor about the iconic smoking jacket garment

This robe-like outer garment made of silk, velvet, or wool, was designed to protect the wearer from odors and falling ash. The origin of the smoking jacket may have been Edward VII, (1841-1910) the Prince of Wales.

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers, and much more. Cigar Advisor Magazine has an article called “Whatever Happened to the Smoking Jacket?” by Arthur Payson, an in-depth look at the history and downfall of the smoking jacket.

When you hear the words "smoking jacket," one image that comes to mind is that of Playboy magazine founder, Hugh Hefner. He's probably one of the few people who not only reintroduced it to male smokers, it actually became part of his image.

Cigar Advisor Magazine has published an article in this month's feature section, entitled, "Whatever Happened to the Smoking Jacket?" Written by Cigar Advisor contributor, Arthur Payson, readers will learn the history, design and possible future of this highly fashionable and practical garment.

"With each waking day, we look in our closet to choose what we want to wear," writes Mr. Payson. "This decision starts a chain of events that continues throughout the day. What we choose to wear tells the world a lot about ourselves."

Payson points out that sometimes our clothes reflect our interests. "A guitar player's T-shirt might sport the image of a 1958 Gibson Les Paul. Those of us with passionate interests [such as cigars] like to share them with the world. It’s what sets us apart from others."

The smoking jacket, which dates back to the late 19th Century, "was created to wear after dinner, when the men would retire to a smoking room," adds Payson. "This robe-like outer garment made of silk, velvet, or wool, was designed to protect the wearer from odors and falling ash. The origin of the smoking jacket may have been Edward VII, (1841-1910) the Prince of Wales."
