Upgrade Your Loungewear: The Sweatshirt Robe

Let’s be honest, men are terrible when it comes to good lounge-wear. Bad plaid or team logo oversized fleece pants and bad tees seem to be the standard issue for all men of all ages. For years, I blamed the brands for offering terrible options for men. And many still do. But there seems to be a new movement within fashion circles to make better lounge-wear for men – offering better pyjamas, underwear, and robes. Enter my new favourite robe from Merchant Sons – the Sweatshirt Robe.

The sweatshirt robe from Merchant Sons is exactly what you would expect. A soft cozy robe that feels like your favourite sweatshirt. Made in Canada (100% from start to finish) with the brand’s signature sweatshirt fleece and lined with a featherweight jersey for maximum warmth and coziness. I could lounge in this all day. And I do. What I love most about this version of a sweatshirt robe is the attention to detail – the over-sized hood, ribbed cuffs and attached belt make this one stand out. Available in heather gray and charcoal.

Retails for $179 CDN. Worth every fuckin penny!

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
