Turnbull & Asser stripe cotton pyjama setTurnbull & Asser stripe cotton pyjama set

Turnbull & Asser stripe cotton pyjama set

Some men understand that pyjamas flatter, comfort, conceal the ravages of time, and are the only thing it’s bearable to wear when you have a hangover. Others resist the pyjama’s welcoming embrace, wrongly believing they’re the stuffy choice of an older generation. These classically styled Turnbull & Asser pyjamas, handmade in the company’s Gloucester factory from Egyptian cotton with mother-of-pearl buttons, will delight the pyjama afficionado and convert the pyjama-resistant. An easy way to give the Daddy in your life some Cary Grant style sartorial appeal in the bedroom.
