Summer Fashion 2012 – Pajama Party

sleepwear1Real men don’t wear pajamas.

At least that is what we’ve been led to believe. There has long been a stigma attached to men wearing pajamas. Today, what most consider as the official hip sleepwear for men are boxers and a white tee.

Part of the reason is men’s pajamas have long signified sexless-ness. There is only one phase in a guy’s lifetime when pjs are acceptable: under 12, when they look cute. The rule of thumb being once you’re old enough to shave, it’s time to ditch the jammies.

But it wasn’t always that way. Pajamas were sexy – once. Fifties heartthrobs like Cary Grant wore pajamas. But that was a time when anything slightly suggestive was sexy. Seeing Grant in his pajamas made viewers think of sex and nudity and wonder what lay beneath. These days, with full frontal nudity always a click away on the web, little is left to the imagination.

Times are changing. It’s taken half a century for it to happen but pajamas are fighting their way back ‘in’ – thanks to some of today’s leading underwear designers.

One thing these new pajamas have in common: they’re not what your Grandpa would have stepped outside in to pick up the morning paper from the curb. These new jammies are sexier and more suggestive than ever. They may even bring back the pajama party – for men.
