A Sulka has a website (www.sulka.com) and might one day return to production; all that depends on the current corporate owner. Meanwhile, here is a silk jacquard and satin smoking suit (for such suits and dressing gowns they were especially famed), from the 1950s. In the freefall of our age, 'smoking jackets' seem to be making it out to parties in places other than one's own home. In the days when full smoking suits (such as this), were still the thing, such dress, outside the home would have been unthinkable.
