What’s Your Personal Style?
Who says you can’t be dapper at the midnight hour? Having an evening wardrobe is an expressive way to show off your personal style. Maybe you want to channel a distinguished vibe in a silk pair? Or show off your masculinity in a rugged flannel print.
No matter your style, you can easily find a pair of pajamas in a color or pattern you like. If you plan on wearing your pajamas for a long time, it makes sense to purchase a neutral color and traditional cut to ensure they’re always in style. This is especially true if you’re purchasing a luxurious silk set. With that said, don’t be afraid to express your personality. Bonus: you’ll have fun getting ready for bed.
Where Will You Wear Them?
You don’t have to wear your pajamas to sleep. Many men choose to change into comfortable clothes after a long day of work and take them off before bed. Especially if they want to remain presentable for company.
If you’re used to wearing a suit and tie, a traditional set of collared button-up pajamas still feels polished and clean. For the guy who wants to grab a coffee while walking the dog, jersey separates can pull double duty and look modern and well-dressed on the street.
Considering how affordable pajamas are, there’s no reason you shouldn’t add a few pairs to your wardrobe for simplistic dressing in your downtime.
When Will You Wear Them?
Are you buying new pajamas to impress a partner, or for taking it easy on Saturday mornings while flipping pancakes for the kids? Knowing when you’ll actually slip into your pajamas will help you buy the appropriate pair that fits your lifestyle. If you take video calls with your boss on the regular, you might consider a long-sleeve knit tee and men’s pajama pants as your work-at-home uniform.
What Time of Year is it?
The change of seasons is an excellent time to spiff up your lounge wear.
In the spring lightweight jersey tees and pants are comfortable and still ward off chill. In the summer, a basic tee or woven broadcloth set is cool and comfortable for lounging on the patio, sipping a glass of wine. When autumn arrives, a lightweight set of thermal underwear is ideal for throwing on with a beanie and a pair of jeans for a much-needed walk in the woods. (Girls love this look.)
Come winter, flannels and fleece are rugged companions that will help stoke the fireplace in style.
Store your winter and summer pajamas apart so you can easily find the appropriate pair for the time of year.
Another thing to consider is the ease of taking pajamas on and off. Some people have physical limitations due to surgery or other conditions. If you suffer from poor eyesight or limited dexterity, you might want to nix a button-up pair and opt for a pullover nightshirt. If you tend to visit the bathroom frequently during the night, a onesie might be too much work to pull up and down. A drawstring waist or button-fly makes much more sense if you want unrestricted freedom.
Consider the varied price points of pajamas and find a pair that suits your budget and needs. Online shopping has made it convenient to find all types, fabrics, styles, and prices. There’s never been a better time to shop for pajamas. In fact, you can even do it while you’re IN your pajamas.
Ease of Cleaning
Lastly, what are your laundering habits? If you’re still staring at the pile of last week’s dirty clothes, make sure you buy a pair of PJs that are easy to clean and take care of. Dry-clean only or pajamas that need to be ironed should be avoided at all costs. There is nothing worse than getting a comfortable pair of new pajamas that you’ll never wear because they’re never clean. We’ll explore the pros and cons of several different materials and their best uses in the section below.
More Purchase Considerations
Shipping & Delivery
Once you find the best men’s pajamas, be sure to read the shipping and delivery details. Not every company will ship internationally. If you reside within the United States, there may be additional shipping charges for AK or HI residents.
It’s blissful when you can save some money and score free shipping. If you’re shopping on Amazon check if your order qualifies for Prime shipping and if it does, you’ll be putting on those pajamas in no time. Maybe tomorrow.
Warranty & Returns
Don’t get stuck with a pair of pajamas that don’t fit. Pajamas, like any article of clothing, are an investment. Review the return guidelines as they will differ from each retailer. And be sure to follow the manufacturer’s care instructions exactly or you risk damage to your garments. If you’re buying a high-end pair make sure there’s a warranty if you discover any defects in the manufacturing.
