If you’re suddenly spending a lot of time at home, then now is the perfect time to refresh your collection of loungewear. That’s right, we’re talking about men’s pajamas. Even if you sleep without any clothing at all or rock the classic boxers and t-shirt combo, we think every guy needs some comfy sweatpants, pajamas and bathrobes.
Men’s pajamas come in a variety of styles, so there’s something for everyone. Even if you’re a dude who religiously wears boxers at night, a pair of pajama shorts will be more comfortable and more versatile than those everyday-undies. Then you have more sophisticated options, from warm thermal pajama sets to snazzy satin getups for feeling like a king. And since we spend around a third of our life sleeping (plus more time relaxing around the house), why not get the right threads for the job?
Below are our picks for the best men’s pajamas, with options for every sleepwear preference and loungewear style. Lounge around the house like a king in these too-comfy-for-your-own-good pajamas for men.
1. Champion Jersey Sleep Pants
THE MODERN PJs
The Pajama industry doesn’t really adhere to fashion trends, but up-to-date sleepwear is still possible. We recently ranked our favorite men’s sweatpants, but these Champion sleep pants were made for sleeping, not sweating. They’re also proof that the best pajamas for men don’t have to look old fashioned. They’re made for sleeping with a lightweight cotton construction and comfy ribbed cuffs, but the modern design means you could actually wear these to the local market on Sunday morning when regular pants are just not in the books.
2. Nautica Men’s Sleeping Pants
In the winter, we would likely recommend a warm pair of fleece or flannel pajama pants, a classic piece of bedroom attire for men and women. However, in the warmer months, we prefer a 100% cotton pair of sleep pants like this pair from Nautica. Available on Amazon in a dozen different colors and styles, these soft and breathable pants are perfect for both sleeping and lazy days around the house.
3. Polo Ralph Lauren Knit Sleep Shorts
For some guys, a whole set of pajamas is just too much fabric to sleep in. If that sounds like you, we suggest giving up those boxers for these PJ shorts from Polo Ralph Lauren. They’re made of 100% premium cotton to keep your man-parts comfy. And in our modern era of casual-wear, you could even get away with wearing these to take out the trash or walk the dog.
4. Coyuchi Organic Crinkled Pajama Pant
BEST ECO-FRIENDLY STYLE
Coyuchi is a California brand making premium linens, sleepwear and home goods with sustainable and organic materials. All of their products have an unpretensious, laid-back vibe inspired by the California coast. The brand’s organic pajama pants for men are made from 100% organic cotton for a soft feel that’s perfect for relaxing before bedtime or first thing in the morning. With an elastic drawstring waistband and side pockets, these pajama pants have everything you need to lounge around the house in comfort.
5. Majestic International Men’s Pajamas
BEST DAD STYLE PAJAMAS
Dad fashion is all the rage these days. Sure, these old-school pajamas may not look super hip, but these 100% cotton PJs are comfortable, and that’s really all you need from the best men’s pajamas. Majestic International makes some of the best premium pajamas and robes, and their Herringbone Cotton Pajamas are made for getting a good night’s sleep. Sleepwear doesn’t get much better than this.
6. Tony and Candice Short Sleeve Pajama Set
FOR WARM WEATHER
Looking for some summery PJs? This short set from Tony and Candice is your ticket. They’re made of a deluxe satin that does double duty by keeping you cool and making you feel posh when you’re having that morning cup of Joe or watching TV before bed. The satin also has a functional purpose, as it doesn’t get tangled around your body while you move in your sleep.
7. David Archy Button-Down Pajamas Set
THE UPGRADED CLASSIC
If you like the classic button-down pajama design but want something a little more modern, go for this David Archy set. It comes with a collared button-down shirt and drawstring pants. The duo is all one solid, neutral color, save for subtle piping on the chest pocket and cuffs. They’re slightly more expensive than other classic PJs, but you get what you pay for with higher-quality cotton and a better trim fit.
8. Me Undies Men’s Lounge Pants
If you aren’t afraid of a little color in your pajamas, then you’ll definitely want to check out Me Undies selection of men’s lounge pants. We would definitely recommend the Death Star Disco print featured below, but there are over a dozen fun prints featuring tacos, otters, astronauts and other fun creatures. Of course, you can also buy solid color lounge pants from Me Undies if that suits your style better (not to mention a matching set for your sweetheart). These bold lounge pants are made from ultra-soft micro-modal cotton and are perfect for lazy Sundays.
9. PajamaGram Cotton Pajama Set
This set from PajamaGram ticks all the right boxes. They feature a soft jersey cotton that’s lightweight and breathable for summer nights yet warm enough for the winter. The styling is decidedly classic, which we like in pajamas, with a button-up front, notch collar and chest pocket. In short, they’re both comfortable and sophisticated. Plus, reviewers are big fans, saying the PJs are warm, well-made and durable enough to wash easily.
10. Fruit of the Loom Sleep Pant
Another great pair of solo sleep pants are these Fruit of the Loom jersey pants. They’re extremely affordable (most sizes are under $10) and very comfortable with a simple drawstring, button-fly design. They’re also the best-rated product on our list with 4.5/5 stars and more than 5,300 reviews, as Amazon users say they’re incredibly comfortable to wear while sleeping and around the house. In fact, some reviewers are already on their second pair.
11. Zuevi Satin Pajama Set
BEST SATIN PAJAMAS
If you really want to feel like the king of your castle, go for these satin pajamas for men from Zuevi. They come in a variety of bold designs and feature a luxe satin construction that makes them as comfortable as they are eye-catching. Are they over the top? Absolutely. But when it comes to PJs you’re wearing in your own house, who cares?
12. Majestic International Terry Velour Robe
If you’re looking for a manly robe that you’ll want to wear all the time, then check out this terry velour robe. The navy robe features a masculine brown bear print, and the terry velour fabric will feel great whether you’re sleeping in bed or stepping out of the shower. This robe is designed by Majestic International, which makes some of the best men’s pajamas in the world — with a price to match the quality.
13. Versace Baroque Bathrobe
BEST SHAMELESS INDULGENCE
If you want to feel like a total baller, even when you’re alone in your bedroom, then this Baroque Bathrobe from the fashion house of Versace is the ultimate indulgence. At a hair under $1,000, this is the most expensive bathrobe you’ll ever own (we hope). With baroque detailing, shimmering embroidery and gold accents, this bathrobe will make you feel like a king. There are more affordable Versace bathrobes, but if you’re going to treat yourself to a designer bathrobe, then don’t settle for anything less than the best.
