I was going to write this morning about a new tailor I’m interested in, but it’s so cold in my house that it’s hard to think about anything besides how to stay warm. I should probably turn on my heater before going to bed, but the problem is that I always sleep with the windows open. It feels great at night. Just not so great in the morning.
So, I’m thinking about dressing gowns, that somewhat antiquated garment that men used to wear at home when they had to interact with people, but hadn’t yet gotten fully dressed. Personally, I think they’d be great to wear in the morning for when I’m eating breakfast, catching up on my reading, and typing out posts before I run to campus. Basically what I wish I could wear right now. Nobody would really see me in it, but put with a pair of striped light-blue pajamas and Derek Rose navy slippers,* I think I would be quite happy. And warm. Yes, very warm.
This should be in every Gentleman’s wardrobe . Well at least one.
