Pajamas might seem like the most unnecessary clothing items a man can buy, and in a way they are. It really doesn’t matter what you are wearing while you sleep.
The reality, however, is that we don’t wear pajamas to look good while we sleep. We wear them to look good just before and right after we sleep—which is to say, we do it to look nice for the women (or men) with whom we’re going to sleep and waking up. Because a man sitting around drinking coffee and reading the paper in sharp pajamas is sexy, while a man sitting around drinking coffee and reading the paper in the underwear he’s been wearing for 24 hours is not.
So what kinds of sleepwear should you be looking to add to your wardrobe? Well, that depends on your body type, the season, and the climate where you live. But here are some excellent suggestions that will get you started.
