L.L Bean Pajamas
People have been buying L.L Bean pajamas for years and are very loyal to their flannel styles. Their flannel PJ’s are known for being soft and durable, and can be expected to last for a number of year. Last years flannel material seems to have had some problems, but hopefully that has been corrected for this year line, especially for those who love to get these PJ’s for Christmas gifts or for themselves. They come in a wide variety of colors and the fit is pretty traditional with a relaxed fit on the top that includes a chest pocket. The bottoms are straight leg, and they have an elastic waistband, fly and pockets. The L.L Bean sets are a little pricey, but they are great quality and will last for years.

Another very traditional place to get men’s PJ’s is at Lands’ End. You have to buy the Men’s Flannel Pajama pants and shirt separately, so you have a bit more flexibility with sizing that can help lead to a better fit and more comfort. A nice touch with these PJ’s is that you can get them monogrammed, so they make a nice gift.These are a great choice if you have trouble staying warm, as the flannel is pretty thick and durable, while still being super soft. They come with an elastic waistband, a fly with a one-button closure, and two on-seam pockets. If you are looking for bottoms that can fit someone who is very tall, this is a good brand to check out, since they come in tall sizes.

RK Classical Sleepwear Men’s Broadcloth Woven Pajama Set
If you are looking for a traditional style that won’t break the bank Robes King Classical Sleepwear Men’s Broadcloth Woven Pajamas is a set worth taking a look at. It is a two-piece, long sleeve style made of a light fabric that is 55% cotton and 45% polyester. It is a pretty wide cute so, so if you like your PJs really baggy this may be the style for you.

Hanes Men’s Adult X-Temp Short Sleeve Tagless Cotton Raglan Shirt and Pants Pajamas Pjs Sleepwear Lounge Set
Another good, inexpensive option that works well for the summer that isn’t the traditional styling, is this set from Hanes. For the price you are paying this set is pretty good quality and reported to be very comfortable. It is meant for summer or warmer weather, but if you get very hot at night you may be able to wear this in the winter months (depending on where you live). It uses something called X-Temp technology that is supposed to keep you cool and comfortable. This style also works well as a lounge set, since it doesn’t have a strong pajama look to it. The lack of tags helps to add to the comfort level as tags can sometime rub and become irritating. Some men do have had some issues with the pants shrinking a bit, probably due to the type of cotton I guess. Anyway these are a nice looking, inexpensive option that will keep you cool, while still looking good.
