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’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. But let’s not forget you also 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? The best men’s pajamas come in a variety of styles, so there’s something for everyone:
Every guy is different, so we made sure to feature every category that constitutes as PJs nowadays. As you check out our picks for the best men’s pajamas, you’ll find options that you’ll actually want to wear for every night sleepwear. Now lounge-on, my guy.
1. Texere Crew Neck Undershirt for Men
You haven’t lived until you’ve slept in a tee made from a blend of bamboo viscose and cotton. It’s an ultra-soft combination that makes this one of the most comfortable t-shirts around. This classic crew-neck from Texere is available on Amazon in white, light gray or black. And we wouldn’t blame you if you went for a few of them. These are perfect for lazy days and sleepy nights.
2. 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.
3. Hanes Comfortwash Tank Top
Tanks aren’t just for summer days or a quick sesh at the gym. They’re great for bed too. The cut is a little less confining, but it still gives you plenty of top coverage, if that’s what you’re looking for. The 100% cotton lightweight tank features a ribbed neckline and armholes so it won’t wear down easily. This is the closest you’ll get to wearing a shirt that feels like you’re not wearing one.
4. Fruit of the Loom Men’s Classic Waffle Crew Top
FOR COOL WEATHER
On a cool autumn night, nothing is cozier than throwing on a warm waffle top. This long-sleeve one is midweight, so it should keep you warm without making you break a sweat during the middle of the night. There are a few different neutral color options available on Amazon, and you can even pick up a multi-pack if you’re looking to stack-up.
5. Nautica Men’s Lounge Short
BEST LOUNGE SHORT
These Nautica knit shorts make it too easy to just kick your feet up and relax. The shorts are made of 60% cotton and 40% polyester — resulting in a super soft, midweight short that’ll give you the comfort you’re looking for. The elastic drawstring waist with contrasting piping trim will keep these from fallin’ down when you don’t want them to. You’ve got your choice of colors here because it’s available in navy, black, heather gray, and light blue on Amazon.
6. Uniqlo Men’s Woven Boxers
For the guys that like to wear boxer shorts to bed and nothing else, this one is for you. The woven broadcloth boxers from Uniqlo are incredibly soft, and they’re quite roomy — because who wants to wear something skin-tight when they go to bed? It comes in navy, pink or gray, and at $6.90, they’re cheap (and comfy) enough to warrant buying a few pairs.
7. Champion Men’s Long Mesh Short
BEST MESH SHORT
Let’s be honest. A lot of guys wear gym shorts to bed. And that’s cool. We don’t have to pretend it doesn’t happen. But some gym shorts, like ones with built-in spandex, just don’t cut it for the bedroom. However, these long-length men’s gym shorts from Champion are made of a lightweight mesh material and come in a slew of colors. There’s a reason why these are an Amazon top-seller. They get the job done.

8. Alexander Del Rossa Bathrobe
If you’re looking for a manly robe that you’ll want to wear all the time, then check out this warm flannel fleece robe. It features a masculine black and gray plaid print, and the fabric will feel great whether you’re sleeping in bed or stepping out of the shower. This plush robe comes with a tie closure and is available in a few other designs. As an added incentive, nearly 2,500 customers have given this a positive five-star rating on Amazon.
9. Polo Ralph Lauren Knit Jersey Pants
We’ve already covered these in the shorts version, but this fan-favorite is so comfy and stylish that we decided to throw the pants into the mix as well. Much like its shorts counterpart, these are made of 100% cotton and feature a roomy straight pant leg so you’ll be good to go on cooler nights.
10. 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.
11. 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 unpretentious, 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.
12. 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.
13. 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.
14. Me Undies Men’s Lounge Pants
BEST LOUNGE PANT
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 Espresso or Dino prints, 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.
15. 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.
16. 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.
17. 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?
18. 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 $595.00, 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.
19. 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.
20. PajamaGram Cotton Pajama Set
This set from PajamaGram ticks all the right boxes. They feature 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.
