For as much as I may be "clothes mad" (to heist a phrase), I've never been one for pyjamas in the old fashioned sense. I'm talking about the "suits" of pyjamas that come with a button front shirt/coat with lapels. I've always found that they get all twisted in the night,making them terribly uncomfortable to sleep in. But that's not to say I don't give my "house clothes", as I call them, at least some consideration.
recently acquired cardigan from Lands' End Canvas 1963. Don't get me wrong, there is no sarcasm intended here at all. I've actually grown quite fond of this sweater used this way. It's soft, warm and comfortable, and being charcoal grey it pairs well with all of my plaid or critter printed flannel pyjama pants. Besides, you should see the ratty old zip front black hoodie this sweater has replaced. Take a cue from your grandfather and Mr. Rogers, a favorite cardigan that sees near daily use but rarely leaves the house is a must have.
Toms by Rugby RL that appalled so many of you when I first picked them up have become old friends as well. I like to be well put-together, even at home, even when no-one sees. I do it for myself, you see, which is the best, and perhaps only, reason to attempt to dress well.
Did I really just post photos of myself in my pyjamas on the internet? Yikes! Well, at least I don't wear this stuff out to the grocery store at 11 a.m.
