Etiquette #1

After requesting that friends wear black tie for an evening at his own home, a gentleman may greet them wearing a smoking jacket, along with the remainder of black-tie regalia. pakeman_co_uk_cotton_velvet_sweetened

If a gentleman actually owns a smoking jacket, he runs the risk of being deemed eccentric by his friends.

    That is one beautiful jacket. I’d love to be on the arm of the man wearing such a dashing ensemble! Great blog!

    There’s nothing wrong with eccentric; I think most men wish they possessed some kind of unique charming character trait, but settle with ubiquitousness. <3
