Luxury Loungewear – Pyjamas For Stylish Gentleman

Derek Rose Loungewear - Michael 84 Fashion Blog

When do PJ’s or pyjamas become loungewear or nightwear? It’s probably when you reach get into your twenties, and then once in your thirties, you really should be embracing the comfort and luxury of some really fine clothing to wear for bed, or even when you’re just lounging around (hence the name).

Quite a while back I got some really high end loungewear, I think it’s been on the blog before but I’ve never really written a proper blog post about it. Since we’re in Winter and it’s been cold, it’s probably a good time to feature it on the blog. It’s from Derek Rose, and it’s something which I really love to wear. Now, these are not traditional PJs or “Formal nightwear” as it’s called because it’s posh, this is more for relaxing. I associate the more traditional PJ style with two age groups; Really little kids, or really old men. In our 20’s and 30’s and even 40’s, where does that leave us? With loungewear.

best-mens-christmas-jumpers-2016-1

Over the years I’ve loved my Christmas jumpers, and have quite the collection from my Christmas Jumpers 2015 and 2014, and this year will be no different. It seems there’s more and more jumpers on sale, from the absolute novelty to the verging on stylish, there’s a pattern or design for you. The ultimate in cheesy Christmas themed knits, or something a bit more toned down with a seasonal fair isle sweater.

Christmas Jumper Day is Friday 16th December this year, where you can not only wear a brilliant novelty jumper, but also you can donate to Save The Children if you want to show your support to the charity.

Men’s Fashion Tips – Winter Coat & Jacket Buying Guide

Canada Goose Jackets For Winter

UPDATED FOR 2016

Brrr it’s getting cold in ‘ere! Winter is here, or coming, depending on where in the world you live and when you’re reading this post 😉 One way or another you’ll be experiencing the depths of winter sometime soon, so you’ll need a winter coat or jacket to get you through a few horrible months of the miserable British winter weather.

Buying a good winter coat is not only important for the first year you purchase it, but it can become a good investment piece, lasting a good few winters before you need to splash out and buy another. With that said, investing in a good jacket is not only worth it because you’ll be getting much better quality which will be noticeable when you wear it, as well as it lasting longer than a cheap and cheerful coat.

My winter coat and jacket collection has grown over the past few years, and I have quite a few of the bases covered with quite the selection, including my Pull and Bear Parka, Barbour Chelsea Quilted Jacket, Adrian Hammond padded jacket and of course the daddy of them all, my Canada Goose.

The Canada Goose Is Hands Down The Best – Buy One!

I would love to advise you to go out and spend near £600 on a Canada Goose jacket, but things are not that simple. In my opinion if you need a coat for a harsh winter there is simply no better than a Canada Goose. I got a Chilliwack Parka a few years ago, and it was a godsend for 2 bad winters we had. It does come with a few problems in the UK though. For example, last winter was so mild I never actually wore it! They are amazing for harsh weather, and if it’s freezing cold, if there’s wind chill, or if it’s snowing, then wearing one will keep you toasty. However if it’s a mild winter and not really sub-zero temperatures, you’ll literally be sweating in one; They are not really designed for mildly-cold winters. There’s the price too, at around £600 it is rather expensive.

So what are the other bits of fashion advice  when looking to buy a winter coat this year? Well there are a few options, and I will go into the different styles of jackets which are available at the moment.
