If the occasion does dictate the need to cover up, usually any old college T-shirt and pair of boxers is considered sufficient as an ensemble. However, with the new fabrics and styles available today, this old fall-back is no longer the only option.
First and foremost, what you choose to wear to bed should be appropriate for the climate you’re in and above all it should be comfortable. This means if you are located in the tropics of Cairns, you should probably avoid wearing thermals made of synthetic fabric.
Which takes us back to a point we find ourselves making time and time again: it’s all in the fabric.
When seeking superior comfort after dark you should look for items which offer a subtle, appealing texture while remaining breathable. The next logical step is to choose your night ensemble based where you’ll be sleeping, or the “situation.” (Stay at the in-laws, vs. a night with a lady friend) and adjust sleepwear accordingly.
When it comes down to choices, boxers and briefs are the clear favourite. A pair of loose-fitting cotton boxer shorts is one of those items which every man should already own. They’re comfortable, inexpensive, easy to maintain, and unlike tighter boxers, they’ll leave plenty of room for you to rest peacefully. Wear these with either a tank top in the summer months, or a long sleeved t-shirt in the cooler seasons. It is always recommended to buy 100% Cotton where you can as this will allow your body to breathe while you sleep.
Another favourable choice is the classic Pyjama set. Slip into these Gloster blue striped pyjamas for luxurious comfort throughout the night. Made from soft cotton, polyester blend and featuring a left chest pocket and drawstring waist on the trousers, this practical pair of Pj’s is ideal for relaxing indoors and providing a perfect nights rest.
1) Boxers: every man should own a pair if not several.
2) Silk may seem like a good idea at the time, but beware descending to Hugh Hefner-esque levels
3) The most important element is that you are comfortable, so if it turns out your more at ease buck naked, then maybe just invest in a good quality dressing down for appearance’s sake.
So go on, give yourself the gift of a peaceful night’s sleep with a pair of our high quality men’s pyjamas, or slip into a silky soft dressing gown as you sip coffee and read the papers on a Sunday morning.
