Thoughts on These Smoking Jackets?

Maximus RexMaximus Rex Posts: 3,367 ✭✭✭✭✭
As much as I enjoy smoking cigars, I really don't care for smelling for clothes to smell like smoke afterwards, so I like to get your opinions on these smoking jackets.

    That's a smoking robe and it's doing too much. There's a fine line between fly and pretentious. Besides you can't wear that shit to the club.

    That's the problem with niggas, it seems that dressing well, going to school, reading, listening to something other than rap, R&B and using correct proper English are associate with being white? Try are some things that white people do that we need to emulate, one of those is knowing who to dress. It's gotten to the point now where niggas are so fucking hood, that the don't even know how to polish shoes, tie a necktie, or coordinate causal or buisness dress. How is wearing smoking jacket considered "white," when basically the only person who wears on is Hugh Heffner. SMH @ the ratchet nigga who came in here on some hatin shit.

    man take your ass to a hootie and the blowfish thread

    This isn't dressing well it is trying to look prestigious. Every dude in the hood can't conduce business meeting because the are not businessmen. Its like the solider from infantry attempting to be a general. I believe in education and experiencing other things in the world but there is always a line. Yours is just different than others.

    SMFH, the failings of the public school system in America, coupled with niggas abject refusal to read and increase their vocabulary is a muthafucka. Dude did you mean:

    prestigious indicative of or conferring prestige: the most prestigious address in town.

    2. having a high reputation; honored; esteemed: a prestigious author.


    or

    pretentious characterized by assumption of dignity or importance, especially when exaggerated or undeserved: a pretentious, self-important waiter.

    2. making an exaggerated outward show; ostentatious.

    3. full of pretense or pretension.


    because if you're trying to convey the thought that "looking prestigious," is a bad thing and will generate negative results, then you should gone and "commit that," right now. Besides, I'm not trying to fuck with "hood niggas." I'm trying to attract and be around people who trying to make something of their lives and make it happen.

    I was referring to the terms like celebrated,distinguished, making yourself look greater than. I graduated from the hood but I never seen anyone walk around in their home or outside with that on. As long as you think buying material objects will get you accepted you will remain a nigger. Clothes don't make the man

    Yesterday was a seminal day in Rex's fashion development, for it was yesterday that Rex was fitted for his first piece of custom clothing.

    As y'all all know, I've been wanting a smoking jacket. When I went priced the jackets, surprisingly, I found it would be cheaper to have one made as opposed to buying one off-the-rack. Having my jacket made saved me roughly $100. Also, if I would had bought the jacket off-the-rack, I still would have had taken in to have some alterations made. (E.g. if I would have bought the off-the-rack, I would have had the sleeves taken in about an inch to show cuff.

    The sacrifice I'm making is in the style of the jacket. I wanted this one, except in traditional red with the black shawl collar and black cuffs.

    The place I went didn't have this pattern, and that's the major difference between a bespoke clothing and made-to-measure. With bespoke clothing, a lot more measurements are taken and from those measurements, a custom pattern of your body type is made. From that custom pattern, the tailor will make your suits. With made-to-measure, few measurements are taken and they'll match your measurements up with pre-existing patterns and that's what I did with this jacket. The smoking jacket that I'm going to get is going to look like this.

    Shit is still fly as fuck and I'm going to shut shit down walking around Catholic School with this shit on. I'm just trying to decide on what kind of shirt to get.

    I got one. It's Black on Black with a Black silk liner and silk lined pockets. stitched cuffed, real simple but dope. I only wear that mofo on rainy days when I know for a fact that I'm in the house for a while. that way I can get that super player relax on with the Cigars, Brandy and Kush. have that shit all on my Poker table. I feel you @MaximusRex it takes a REAL player to recognize what real players like.

    This what cats don't understand, the intricacies involved in game recognizing game. It's kinda like being in a secret society. As a cigar smoker, when you're smoking a cigar on the street, fellow "Brothers of the Leaf," will acknowledge in the street. When you're dressed right, people will want to fuck with, especially white people. White dudes will be like, "His suit fits, he's showing and inch of cuff, he has on dope pocket square. Dude's alright, let me find out a little more about him." Dudes need to stop reaching for the lowest common denominator and try to reach for something a little bit higher.

    Similar but no belt, I got buttons, and the only stitching I have is on the cuffs. and the lapels are just smooth.

    I like the buttons, it's smooth look, but there's just some really pimpish about the belt and the double breasted shit. You should wear you shit out to the club or the nudey bar. The good part is the jacket will open bitches for you, the bad part is bitches will come up to you with their nasty ass hands tryin' to touch all on your velvet smoking jacket. You got the ascot, playa?
