    It is a smart jacket, very similar to what men have as part of a suit.
    If you search images rather than dictionaries you can see plenty of examples.

    Unfortunately, the images I found were not that clarifying. Your explanation was far more enlightening. Thanks.

    I can see there is a trend to use “lounge” as a word to describe very casual gear, stuff you would lounge around your home in. One step up from your pyjamas! This is not the same as a traditional lounge jacket, which might even have been called a lounge suit. This name was used to mark a difference between types of menswear which still looks quite formal compared to a hoody, but not quite as formal as a top hat and tails!
