One of the best parts of staying at a hotel is the comfortable and cozy robes that are supplied for lounging on a bed that you don’t have to make in the morning. But if you want to bring the hotel experience home, we recommend buying your own robe instead of taking one from the hotel. As noted by USA Today, taking a hotel robe home with you can cost you big time, from charges on your credit card to a police report and fine levied against you (that’s only in extreme cases, but it can happen).
Not only does buying your own robe come with the perk of not having to explain a ridiculous criminal charge on your record, but it also gives you the opportunity to pick a robe to your exact preferences and one that hasn’t been worn by many, many, many other people. Want a robe for keeping warm on cold nights? Maybe something lightweight to wear when traveling or to provide some modesty when you have guests staying overnight? Whatever your preference, we have the robe for you.
From Christmas and Hanukkah to birthdays and housewarmings, robes make the perfect gift. We love having a few robes on hand to use throughout the year depending on the season while also keeping extra stocked for guests. Check out our top picks for men’s robes and get ready to find your new favorite piece of clothing.
1. Alexander Del Rossa Men’s Warm Fleece Robe
Made with a heavyweight 330 grams per square meter or GSM of coral fleece, the Alexander Del Rossa Men’s Robe is the ultimate in warm comfort. The plush microfiber fleece robe is ankle length and includes a hood, keeping you covered and warm head to toe even on the chilliest mornings and coldest nights. Machine washable and safe for the dryer, this robe is easy to care for and won’t shed or pill.
Pros: The Alexander Del Rossa robe comes with an oversized hood and two front pockets, as well as inner and outer ties. We also like that the robe is available in 13 color combinations.
Cons: Because the Alexander Del Rossa robe is made with fleece, it’s not ideal for wearing while wet, so you may want to skip it if you’re looking for a robe to wear post-shower or hot tub.
2. Nautica Men’s Long Sleeve Robe
For a lightweight robe that is perfect for warmer climates or those who want comfort without the bulk, we recommend the Nautica Men’s Long Sleeve Robe. Made from 100% cotton, the robe features a shawl-collar, outer belt and two large front pockets.
Pros: Like the Alexander Del Rossa Men’s Robe, the Nautica robe is also machine washable. The breathable robe is perfect for those who run hot or need a light robe to take on vacation or during hospital stays and features the classic J-Class Nautica logo on the chest. It’s also available in eight colors.
Cons: The Nautica robe hits around the knees, making it shorter than the Alexander Del Rossa. The robe also fits small and customers may need to go up a size.
3. Ross Michaels Men’s Hooded Robe
For a robe that is lightweight, warm, and has added features like a hood and oversized pockets, we recommend the Ross Michaels Men’s Hooded Robe. The robe lands in the middle in terms of the warmth factor between the first two robes and comes with interior ties and an exterior belt for secure closure.
Pros: The 100% polyester robe is comfortable, warm and cozy and can be machine washed. It’s a full-length robe and falls above ankle.
Cons: Like the Alexander Del Rossa Men’s Robe, the Ross Michaels Men’s Hooded Robe is also not ideal for putting on while wet as it will soak up the water.
