As far back as the 1860s the increasing popularity of outdoor pursuits among the British middle & upper classes led to a corresponding increase in the popularity of the lounge suit This became a country alternative to the more starchy formal daywear traditionally worn by menabouttown Men also sought an alternative to the stiffly formal tailcoat worn in the evening at society functions For some country squires the solution was to adopt the casual velvet smoking jacket by having it made from the same fabric as the evening tailcoat This made it more acceptable for more informal homedining A turningpoint in the respectability of wearing tailless jackets as a part of eveningdress came with the adoption of the style by the UK Prince of Wales (later to become King Edward VII) The Prince′s tailors Henry Poole & Co of Savile Row have an undated receipt for a blue silk smoking jacket ordered by the future monarch to wear to informal dinnerparties They have variously claimed dates of 1860 & 1865 for this receipt
o Fabric While looking out for buy a Tuxedo suiting fabric you need to look out for those materials that are guaranteed to spring back into their normal shape after you wring them. There are many suiting material that are tagged with the super 100 label which just means that the fabric yarn has just been twisted about 100 times rather than the normal 6080. o Pant fitting and length of sleeves To check the pant fitting you need to be able to slip in two fingers behind the waist while you are trying on the pant. If you can slip in your fingers without any problem then you do not have to worry about the fitting again. If you are thinner do away with pleated pants however if you are on the chubby side you can do with the pleated pants. The length of the jacket sleeves needs to be long enough so as to cover the tip of your thumb when your hands are by your side. If this is not the case you will end like a wannabe who borrowed his brother`s suit.
