How To Tell The Difference Between Different Types Of Mens Longewear
Luxury bath robes for men, mens loungewear and pajama pants, and even a men’s smoking jacket are popular gifts that allow the man in your life the opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves without being concerned if their tie is straight.
For some women, the trouble has been, at times, understanding the difference between a luxury bathrobe, loungewear, and a smoking jacket and deciding which one to choose.
Men’s Smoking Jacket
Smoking Jackets are a more formal style of casual wear that gained popularity in the Victorian age. They feature front pockets designed to hold pipes, tobacco, or cigar kits since that was their original purpose.
Gentlemen would don these before smoking so that the ‘smell’ could be taken off afterwards. They are tailored and similar in appearance to that of a sports coat or suit.
While the men’s smoking jacket isn’t seen quite as much today, you can still find real vintage smoking jackets and even costumes if you look hard enough. Try ebay if your looking for the Real Classics. Or you can make your own!

They are popular among fine cigar enthusiasts and those who prefer a more tailored, formal look including businessmen hosting associates in their home. Hugh Hefner is one of the biggest icons associated with the smoking jacket, and often paired them with loungewear. (you can see a video of Hugh below)
Luxury Bath Robes For Men
Another favorite of Hugh, a luxury bathrobe is quick and easy to put on and comfortable enough to live in. They can be worn over any style of casual wear including birthday suits without sacrificing comfort.
While men’s luxury bath robes are often made from microfleece and other polyester fabrics, good luxury bath robes for men are generally found in high-end fabrics such as organic 100% Egyptian or Turkish cotton.
This makes them absorbent (perfect for after a shower) and soft to the touch.
Style and cut are important to enjoy this style of casual wear to the fullest.
Pockets should be big enough to hold small items and hands, but they should be sculptured to protect the style.
Also, select a cut and size that makes these items form fitting so that they are comfortable to wear and move in. Lastly, look for a fabric weight that will ensure he is comfortable at all times.
Mens Loungewear & Pajama Bottoms
Loungewear or mens pajamas often consist of a lone pair of loose fitting mens pajama bottoms and loungewear sets with a tie or elastic waist or a pair of shorts very similar to boxers.
Many men choose to pair the lounge pants with tie shirts that resemble short men’s bathrobes. Two-piece styles provide men with added coverage and comfort since they can take the top off if they become too warm.
These are commonly made from silk, charmeuse, or even fine cottons and flannels like mens flannel pajama bottoms. Men generally prefer these styles because they allow them to relax in them long after waking up and are loose and comfortable enough to sleep in. The two pieces also prevent embarrassment if they need to answer the door or head out for the newspaper.
Men’s casual wear is the perfect way for the men in your life to relax after being constrained to specific, rigid work wear all week.
Men’s bathrobes, smoking jackets, men’s pj pants , flannel pajama bottoms and mens loungewear allow him to relax and enjoy just being at home without the deadlines and harsh rules of everyday life.

“You Can’t Put a Price Tag on LOVE,
But You Can on ALL its ACCESSORIES.”
