TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S/’60’S TRADITIONAL TAILORED MEN’S PAJAMAS

TRUE VINTAGE 1950'S/'60'S TRADITIONAL TAILORED MEN'S PAJAMAS

Now we’ll go, almost, to the other end of the spectrum for some standard-issue men’s or boys’ cotton PJs – though they’re spiffed up with some really neat prints.

Plain and basic in their style, they’re well-made enough to have survived in good shape. They could even have been from the ’40’s, but I don’t think so. Somewhere between 1955 and ’65 probably hits it.

Though not luxurious, they are comfortable (I can wear them!) and a lot of fun!  The red fans on the right are an unusual, to me, motif for men’s pajamas but, hey, what do I know?  They are a traditional East Asian motif and may have been an influence of the Pacific arena wars the U.S. had just been through in the Forties and Fifties . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

SURPRISE 1950’S SLEEPWEAR FIND!! LIKE-NEW TRUE VINTAGE PAJAMA SET

IMG_1733Another big thrill for me – finding this RARE pajama set with both pieces, and in virtually perfect condition!  Made by Barbizon, of delicious cotton batiste with smocking and lace. The pants button closed and are not elasticized – I love that.  Such a cute and comfy summer pj’s set.

Similar to the other clothing items that I like best, these are classic in design. The things that really set them apart are the superior tailoring details and the exceptional quality of fabric.  Pajamas like these last forever if they are washed gently and are extremely comfortable.

Found these just last week, but I discovered another sleepwear treasure yesterday – so stay tuned . .. . . . . . . . . . . . .
