Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be comfortable at home? Forget jeans and overshirts, pyjamas, hoodies and sweatpants are the order of the day at home, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on aesthetics.
A number of brands choose to focus on attention to detail and the fit of their loungewear, which is an aspect of menswear that’s often overlooked. Whether you’re working from home or just want to relax in absolute comfort, these are the men’s loungewear brands to know.
Best men's loungewear brands
For T-shirts - L’Estrange
L’Estrange is best known for its 24 trouser, which is arguably the only work-from-home trouser worth buying. The brand also does an excellent line in T-shirts though. Made from the world’s softest cotton - Supima - and designed with a back pleat for added ease of movement, they’re tough to beat.
For pyjamas - Piglet
The ultimate comfort, of course, can only be found in pyjamas. Piglet keeps it simple with theirs - made from 100% natural stonewashed flax, and with an elastic waistband, drawstring, and soft collar up top, the simple design ensures they look just as good as they feel.
For hoodies - Neutrale
Neutrale’s line of basics extends through the entire loungewear range, from slub cotton tees, to slip on sneakers. Its hoodies are a highlight though. Made from garment dyed, pre-washed organic cotton and made in Portugal, they come with a slightly oversized fit making them perfect for lounging around the house.
For slippers - Inabo
If you haven’t yet invested in a pair of slippers, you’re in for a treat. A game-changer for wearing around the house, a quality pair of slippers such as these by Inabo will take your relaxation game to another level. Crafted from either leather or suede, and with an easy slip on style, Inabo’s slippers are made to last.
For knitwear - Artknit Studios
Artknit Studios may be the best knitwear brand you’ve never heard of. Using only the finest wool, it specialises in simply, surprisingly affordable knitted clothing the likes of polos, sweaters and button throughs. For something on the more luxurious end, try and cashmere jumper - there’s nothing more comfortable (or opulent) to wear around the house.
For shorts - Nikben
When the weather gets warmer, drawstring shorts may be the ultimate stay-at-home garments. Nikben’s shorts, made from terry towelling fabric, are about as comfortable as it gets. Wear them with T-shirts, sweatshirts or hoodies, and finish off with slippers around the house or minimal sneakers outside.
For trainers - ETQ
While not strictly loungewear, if you’ve got to run out of the house while wearing sweatpants, trainers are the only option. They also work well when relaxing in the garden or when thrown on for the daily walk. ETQ’s pared back trainers are some of the most well-made, versatile designs around and can be worn with basically anything.
