Do men still wear a full set of pajamas?

Asked by chyna (34166 points ) January 18th, 2013

I remember when the old TV shows like Dick Van Dyke, I Love Lucy, etc, showed the men in pajama bottoms and tops, buttoned up all the way. Do men still wear them, if they actually ever did? I don’t know any men that do, but I see them for sale in the stores.

Not my man. No how, no way, and no pajamas!

+1 for buck nekid; it’s cheaper, reduces laundry and my wife wouldn’t let me anyhow!

Out of the bed, it’s sweats for me.

At the most boxers. At the least nothing.

jca's avatar

No man that I’ve ever known.

@Adirondackwannabe : that’s hot.

@jca Would you believe that made me blush? lol

Now I’m really wondering about the kind of man who actually wears pajamas. I love the way they look, don’t get me wrong, kind of classy…I’m imagining Gregory Peck right now in an old movie…but my husband and I have a phrase for the times when we have any sort of sleepwear on…“you’re wearing too many clothes”. With that, the “clothes” come off!

Maybe men’s pajamas persist because a man’s pajama top looks so damn sexy on a woman.

@Earthgirl The pajama top or a dress shirt looks so so hot on a woman. As do boxers.

Earthgirl's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I have a story about that….

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’m almost afraid to ask, but I never know when to stop. What is it?

Earthgirl's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Well….it was a dress shirt and nothing but a dress shirt…follow me so far?

Earthgirl's avatar

For a show of total class in wearing a man’s PJs see Audrey Hepburn in the morning after scene of Roman Holiday

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Oh I so like the dress shirt.

Earthgirl's avatar

it was white with tiny blue pinstripes…I came slowly down the stairs….you have to imagine the next scene

@chyna Whatever you ask me to darling.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Earthgirl Okay, i surrender.

Ela's avatar

No but they should. Not to bed tho, just around the house (tops optional if left unbuttoned)...
damn sexy, imo.

blueiiznh's avatar

Seriously, What are Men’s Pj’s?

Agreed on the Dress shirt until bedtime, but I have a daughter around the house…..

Ela's avatar

@Earthgirl make mine silk, jewel toned and buttons unbuttoned….

josie's avatar

I doubt it

Earthgirl's avatar

@Ela Isn’t he though??

cookieman's avatar

My dad did. He had full, two-piece, button-up, collared pajamas from Sears my whole life until he died. Blue mostly.

Earthgirl's avatar

@cookieman Lol, my dad wore nightshirts! They looked so cute with his knobby knees sticking out below!

gambitking's avatar

Hell yes, theyre super comfy and I love em.

DigitalBlue's avatar

My grandfathers used to wear them. I don’t know any younger men who wear anything like that, not even my father, but I love them. Not to wear them, I just love the way they look.

Earthgirl's avatar

@gambitking Just curious, would you ever wear a nightshirt? I myself hate wearing pants in bed unless it’s super cold. But I’m wondering if devoted PJ wearers are not the nightshirt type.

Sunny2's avatar

Depends on the age of the man and the weather. I don’t care what he wears as long as he’s there.

augustlan's avatar

Even my grandfather didn’t wear them. He would walk around in boxers and an undershirt before he got dressed.

Bellatrix's avatar

I have never known a man to wear pajamas. Tops, bottoms or both. I think I would be surprised if a guy came to bed in a pair. We both sleep in the nude.

cookieman's avatar

@Earthgirl: I know of what you speak. My dad was 6’3”, 160lbs. He tried a nightshirt once to shake things up. He looked like a chicken running around with a sack on. He promptly returned to his PJs.

CWOTUS's avatar

Oh yeah, I got your full set right here. ~

That’s a “no”.

burntbonez's avatar

Maybe that’s my problem.

josie's avatar

I know a guy who wears a hoodie and sweat pants to bed. Does that count?

Bellatrix's avatar

@josie, I would overheat if I wore so much clothing to bed.

Ela's avatar

@Bellatrix seems the less I wear, the warmer I get… <winks>

Bellatrix's avatar

I hear you @Ela and concur!

blueiiznh's avatar

flash update:
Still not wearing them!

chyna's avatar

^Happy to hear!

Ela's avatar

^^<fans self> ; )

jca's avatar

They just had some survey results this morning on the Today Show (2/8/13) that showed that the people who have the majority of sex are people who sleep in the nude on a regular basis.

Bellatrix's avatar

All the nudists clicking GA there @jca.

blueiiznh's avatar

@jca odd as the best sex imho starts outside of bed and with clothing still on.

just sayin

burntbonez's avatar

People are tired, and having to take clothes off before sex increases the chances you’ll fall asleep before you get there.

Ela's avatar

@burntbonez …..... can’t say that I’ve ever been that tired… clothes can be a form of foreplay, imo
OR… like unwrappin a present, ya know. sometimes you rip n tear… and sometimes it’s all about the slow anticipation ; )

burntbonez's avatar

Without an extensive interview into your bed time habits, @Ela, I can’t know if we are talking about the same thing. But I do know that one of the greatest excuses for not being interested in sex is being tired. So while you may never have been that tired, that would make you a super woman in my book. Or maybe you are still in your twenties or younger, but I thought I read something where you have kids who are no longer toddlers, so that would probably mean you are at least thirty.

Unwrapping a present sounds all nice when you have the energy for it. But I imagine there are many times when most couples might want to do something, but if they have to rip and tear or do anything to remove clothes, they’ll just fall asleep first. You may be the exception that proves the rule.

In which case, I’d like to get you a cup of coffee some day. Or at least get myself one. You know, to make sure I stay awake. j/k

Ela's avatar

Yea, I just don’t get that at all and I can’t imagine falling asleep before it… it always seems to wake me up. Maybe I am the exception or maybe I’m just weird like that. My kids are all teenagers so I’m well past 30 ; )
You don’t have to be naked to have sex… nor be in bed. Kitchen/bathroom countertops work great and quickies keep the spice in a relationship alive, imo. I think some of the best sex can happen when partially dressed. But that’s just me.
