Forget jeans and overshirts, pyjamas, hoodies and sweatshirts are the order of the day. But before you reach for that threadbare tracksuit you still have from your school sporting days, note that you shouldn't have to sacrifice style for comfort. An increasing number of men's loungewear brands today are creating clothing that fuses ease-of-wear with sleek, contemporary aesthetics — everything from luxurious pyjamas to cotton shorts that will look just as great at home as at the gym.
Ready to enter your comfort zone? These are the best men’s loungewear brands to know in 2023.
Best men's loungewear brands in 2023
CDLP is renowned for its eco-friendly men's underwear, made from luxuriously soft lyocell – a sustainable alternative to cotton. In recent years however, the Stockholm-based brand has expanded its offering to include a collection of 'homewear', encompassing shirts, trousers, shorts and robes, also made from lustrous lyocell. Sitting somewhere between loungewear and ready-to-wear, the home suit is the WFH uniform you never knew you needed.
Hamilton and Hare
As well as producing some of the best men's underwear and sleepwear around, Hamilton and Hare is responsible for making some damn good loungewear. Joggers, drawstring shorts, sweatshirts and hoodies are all given the next-level treatment that we've come to expect from the British brand. Our pick? The Relax Robe, in brushed cotton or towelling, is the perfect addition to your loungewear wardrobe, ideal for long lazy mornings or even as your working-from-home uniform.
Neutrale’s line of basics extends through the entire loungewear range, from slub cotton tees, to slip-on sneakers. The hoodies and sweatshirts are a highlight though. Made in Portugal from garment-dyed, pre-washed organic cotton, they have a slightly oversized fit, lending them ultimate comfort and making them ideal for lounging around the house in.
Amsterdam-based brand Unrecorded has become renowned for its fuss-free staples, which are ethically made in Portugal using eco-friendly and organic fabrics. The label's tees, heavyweight hoodies, sweaters and sweatpants are classic loungewear staples that you'll reach for time and again, thanks to their minimalist designs and flattering, easy-to-wear silhouettes, not to mention supreme comfort.
Artknit Studios may be the best knitwear brand you’ve never heard of. Using only the finest wool, it specialises in simple, surprisingly affordable knitted clothing such as polo shirts, jackets and roll necks. For something on the more luxurious end of the spectrum, try a cashmere jumper — there’s nothing more comfortable (or opulent) to wear around the house.
Dutch label WAHTS creates menswear essentials that fuse the elegance of tailoring with the comfort and functionality of premium sportswear. Sophisticated colourways, sleek silhouettes and technical fabrics characterise the brand's offering, which encompasses knitwear, hoodies, drawstring shorts and more. Whether you're lounging around, running errands or heading to the gym, WAHTS has you sorted.
Named after a natural herb with healing properties, Neem was founded as an ‘antiseptic’ for fast fashion. The label creates long-lasting menswear staples from recyclable, ethical and traceable fabrics. Key pieces include super-soft Merino T-shirts, recycled cotton socks and long-sleeve polo shirts.
L’Estrange is best known for its 24 trouser, which is arguably the only working-from-home trouser worth buying. The brand also does an excellent line of T-shirts, though. Made from ultra soft organic cotton and designed with a back pleat for added ease of movement, they’re tough to beat. The best bit? They'll serve you just as well for everyday at-home lounging as for bossing it in smart business meetings.
Luca Faloni's eponymous label was founded on the basis of fusing exceptional Italian craftsmanship with timeless style. The brand creates trend-transcending staples, be they classic Oxford shirts, leather weekender bags or cashmere jumpers. Loungewear staples like hoodies and sweatpants are taken up a notch, crafted from luxurious materials like pure cashmere and silk-cashmere blends. Lounging around never felt so sumptuous.
