About Us

The Smoking Jacket Magazine is a grassroots, fully independent blog that launched on May 12, 2014 and was the result of an aspiration to bring tobacco education to both novices and aficionados alike. The magazine has contributors from all over Canada and the United States, and offers reviews and opinions on the art and hobby of smoking. We pride ourselves on our personal, unbiased reviews of quality tobacco products.  Smoking Jacket Magazine seeks to stretch new bounds by producing both written and video content to appeal to a wide variety of demographics. We are working toward daily content, and producing a PDF of the magazine quarterly. We have snowballed within an extremely short period of time and we’re delighted by all of your support!

We’ll also be seeking endorsements and advertisers so that we can continue to bring you a quality product on a monthly basis.

We welcome your thoughts, contributions, press releases, event announcements, and anything else that furthers the joy of our shared hobby!  From all of us here at Smoking Jacket Magazine, thank you for your continued support, you’re the reason we’re doing this.

Smoke em if you got em!

Comments Policy

As a mostly Canadian magazine, there are certain elements of typical internet discussion that are not permitted on our site.  Essentially, there is no excuse to be rude.

  • Racism is rude.
  • Sexism is rude.
  • Spam is rude.
  • Homophobia and transphobia are rude.
  • Personal insults as a debating technique are rude.
  • Politics are probably rude.  While, in general, our staff would describe our personal politics as mostly left wing, we have a large right wing readership.  If it is not related to tobacco regulations or import rules, we probably don’t need to discuss it here.
  • Repeated assertions of a “fact” without citing a source to back it does not make it true, and is also rude.  But citing a contradictory source as a rebuttal is not rude.
  • We reserve the right to delete comments and ban commenters for rudeness at our discretion.

Otherwise, we welcome your comments, even (especially) if you disagree with us.

  1. Dear Sir,
    Having been informed that my articles are appearing on another person’s site, I thought I should ask how this has happened … I had not received any correspondence asking if this would be alright, and hope that, as I do not understand these things, you will explain the process to me.
    I remain,
    Yours faithfully,
    P Livingstone

    • I apologize Mr Livingstone, I am a fan of your musings, and have spent time reading many articles on your site, I don’t respond often, or ever as yet, as I don’t type well As I am disabled. I do however, I agree with many of the things that you say about the degradation and deterioration of society since the time that you and I were young. This being your last post, I thought I would share it with people in the mearest glimmer of hope, that it might touch the soul of one of these soulless people in society and maybe change something. As you normally make your posts unavailable to be reblogged, I thought that you intended this one to be spread around as you didn’t do so on this post, if I am mistaken and you don’t wish your words to be spread, I’ll take the post down immediately. But I do believe you need to be heard!
