Churchillian Velvet Smoking Jacket
We are known for our bespoke suits, yet every so often we design and create new garments. One such item of clothing is this velvet smoking jacket created by M&M's very own Brian Lewis.
Inspired by Winston Churchill's time in the 4th Hussars in the late 19th Century, Brian borrowed elements from Churchill's mess kit, most notably the embroidery, to decorate the sleeves and pocket openings.
This particular jacket is single-breasted with a peak lapels. The jacket is made using cotton backed velvet and pure silk for the facings (lapels). Nowadays, this jacket is an excellent alternative to the dinner jacket.
This Churchillian velvet smoking jacket also can be made in a double-breasted option. If you would like to know anything more about this or having one made for your self, please contact us and ask for its creator, Mr Lewis. [May 2018]
