The right PJs make everything easier.
If you, like me, completely lost track of the thorny set of twists and turns in The Irishman shortly after spotting Al Pacino and Robert De Niro's practically matching pajama sets, then you, like me, are a monster that probably spends way too much time thinking about what to wear. For those who haven’t seen it, here’s a brief synopsis of the movie: Al Pacino and Robert De Niro wear the hell out of more than a few pairs of PJs. 5/5. Warning: This motion picture has been rated E for Extremely Big Fits.
My guy, if you're still wearing boxers to bed it's time to up your game. There's a reason men like art-world mainstay Julian Schnabel have made pajamas a go-to move when going out. (Schnabel's famous for rocking his particularly silky sets with nothing but a pair of tinted shades to top 'em off.) If the full set is too much of a flex for you (fair enough), make like Robert Rabensteiner, formerly of L’Uomo Vogue, and treat the top half of your jammies like you would any other button-down in the rotation. What, you think I don't remember Ryan Gosling shutting Cannes the fuck down in a navy pajama shirt and perfectly tailored cream trousers in a fit that helped launch about a hundred menswear blogs around the start of the decade? People don't forget! That shit still slaps.
To paraphrase an instantly iconic paean to the style: Sorry, sir, I am indeed in pajamas, but in full disclosure, I just hopped off the PJ. You know the vibes.
