A Conversation for In Defence of Pyjamas

Has anyone thought about the mentally reassuring properties of paisley pattern pyjamas?
I certainly think this should be discussed at greater length, along with other patterned pyjama types which may also affect mood.

I think stripes rather than paisley offer the greater reassurance.
It has to be said that the emporium run by Messrs Marks and Spencer, the principle purveyors of pyjamas to the people (I only made this entry for the joy of that alliteration) of the UK no longer stock striped (or Paisley) pyjamas with proper cords and a gaping hole in the nether regions. They have things that I can only suppose are called 'leisure suits'. I hope that this only applies in the sophisticated West End of our capital, and that those lucky enough to live in the provinces are not similarly benighted. Mr Dent would be most alarmed. It is no wonder their share price continues to fall!
Talking of which, are those flannel dressing gowns with two colour braid around the collar (also used for belt) as worn by Arthur still available anywhere?

Ah.Probably in Foster Menswear (if it still exists) or maybe Littlewoods? British Home Stores used to do good ones, but now they're bhs the'yre far too trendy to sell dressing gowns.
And I'll bet once you find some jim-jams and a dressing gown, you'll be looking for some of those slippers. You know, the plaid ones, won't you?
Pheroneous Posted Nov 23, 2000
Ahhh!, slippers! With a nice woolly lining and a soft sole.

Next you're going to let on that you're a pipe smoker??
(only kidding, I have such a dressing gown, lovely & fleecy even after all these years, and we won't be parted)

Would that I were! Unfortunately (Fortunately?) this is not real life! Comfort zones are few and far between!
