Both Ede & Ravenscroft and Oliver Brown, the shops I visited, stock them. Both sell smoking jackets off the peg and bespoke. I liked the brighter coloured velvets, but a deep midnight blue (at Oliver Brown) looks stunning. A plain satin collar makes the coat more of a dinner jacket in style, while elaborate frogging (braiding) is also available for the more extrovert. See also smoking hats below.

I remember my grandfather (who called himself one of the last Victorians; he was born in 1901) owned a round, tasselled smoking hat. These round velvet creations, often elaborately embroidered, came in as wide a range of colours, possibly to match the owner's smoking jacket. Vintage examples can still be found, or try eBay for modern versions.
