MEN'S SMOKING JACKET
The smoking jacket, whether a winter or a summer one, can have buttons, frogs or overlapping flaps and are stopped at the waist with a soft fabric belt, often of the same material that makes up the jacket itself; the neck is usually a scarf in the more traditional models but can also be without a collar in the model called a kimono or even with a high collar in the models with button closure. The offer of smoking jackets and dressing gowns is divided into a wide choice of fabrics of various qualities and various weights; smoking jackets and winter dressing gowns are often made of wool or blends of the latter, velvet or cashmere, while for the warmer seasons, fabrics such as cotton, silk or viscose are preferred.
The colors in which the men's smoking jackets were made, when they first began to spread, were particularly vivid tones with wide stripes or polka dots on backgrounds that were in stark contrast with the colors of the clothes that gentlemen wore during the day, almost to express a home freedom deliberately concealed during daily activities in public.
A smoking jacket is undoubtedly a man's favorite garment when he spends his time at home. Many men use the term "home jacket" to identify a practical product that replaces the outdoor jacket, while maintaining its warmth and freedom of movement.
SMOKING JACKETS IN FLEECE, WOOL AND CASHMERE
The great success of the short men's smoking jacket has increased the choice of fabrics from which this garment can be chosen.
The offer today is really wide and ranges from men's smoking jackets in fleece to refined ones in pure wool or wool and cashmere blends. The fleece smoking jacket is certainly the one with the simplest maintenance, since it can be washed at home and does not require any particular attention. The situation is quite different for men's woolen jackets, which have to be dry-cleaned and treated with greater care. Surely a young man will be inclined to choose a fleece smoking jacket as it is sportier and more suitable for today's dynamic life. The more adult man, attentive to detail, will prefer a smoking jacket made with the finest wools, which retains the charm of traditional workmanship and guarantees unparalleled warmth.
Whether in fleece or in wool, today the men's smoking jacket is the garment that cannot be missing from a man's wardrobe.

MEN'S DRESSING GOWN
Today the distinction between a smoking jacket and a dressing gown has been lost and the use of the two garments has become consistent with that of the men's dressing gown, leaving the choice between the two to personal taste. With the evolution of costumes and as there is no longer a real distinction between the use of the two garments, personal taste is influenced only by the practicality of the movements guaranteed by the shorter smoking jacket which, however, does not warm the legs in the colder season. According to our experience, after listening to the most disparate arguments, we can conclude that tastes are subjective and everyone has the right to make his own choice.
Probably the only factor that influences the choice of both the smoking jacket and the dressing gown is the material it is made of. Those who prefer the enveloping sensation of a heavy garment will orient their choice towards carded wool fabrics; on the other hand, those who, without sacrificing warmth and comfort, prefer a less bulky garment will choose shaved wool, while those who want a very light garment to wear will be able to choose among pile fabrics; finally, those who want an exclusive garment that incorporates a little of all the previous features can choose a smoking jacket or a pure cashmere dressing gown.
