TRUE VINTAGE MEN’S MID-CENTURY ROBE, DRESSING GOWN

I just LOVE rare finds of these early mid-century robes with gorgeous medallion prints and satin trim. As Madge illustrates, they look just as good on a girl as a guy though sizing is sometimes a barrier. In this example, I have to concede that it’s true for me and send it along to someone of larger stature.

Anyway, it’s a fabulous example of early mid-century men’s night-wear in Sanforized cotton. The design is classic, of course, but the trim, print and fabric verify it’s age and fashion era. I’d love to wear it with my men’s pajamas of similar age and design, but can’t bear the idea of cutting into it in order to alter the size. Ah, well, such is the plight of the true vintage sleuth, but well worth the peril. We always live to spy another day . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
