Is anyone else going to change after dinner in the evening?

I will be changing into my smoking jacket after dinner, as I have done before and was wondering if a cravat would be more appropriate than an untied bow tie?

Obviously it is terribly uncouth to have a cigar in ones dinner attire.

Velvet jacket works well. Mustard cords are optional.

Considering you will have to smoke your cigar outside on a cold November night a quilted smoking jacket is probably spot on.

You know you might be onto something there. Of course would have to get a dressing gown, hhhmm something like this would keep me warm while having a smoke

I changed my jacket 2 years ago. No one noticed. It was a little chilly outside, though. I like the idea of a winter smoking jacket. smile

You noticed us getting changed wink

I think most would notice that laugh

But very few (not even our dates!) noticed we had swapped dresses smile

That was a very surreal night - I haven't drunk vodka since! hehe
