UNUSUAL FIND! TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S LADIES’ NYLON LINGERIE PAJAMA SET

UNUSUAL FIND!  TRUE VINTAGE 1960'S LADIES' NYLON LINGERIE PAJAMA SET

It is SO unusual to find a pair of true vintage pajamas with both pieces intact, let alone dating before the 1970’s!  I had to use a little of my special sleuthing know-how to do it, but they were hiding in plain sight.

This pair is by Shadow/Line and is made of fine vintage nylon, with netting, lace and embroidery at the neckline and on the front pocket.  In a beautiful deep coral pink, which is also an unusual color to find.  Yes, there are always fun surprises around the corner . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

A COLLECTION OF TRUE VINTAGE SLEEPWEAR & LOUNGEWEAR

A COLLECTION OF TRUE VINTAGE SLEEPWEAR & LOUNGEWEAR

It seems that in the past women, and men, made a real art of wearing at-home fashion. They didn’t bop around the house in sweats or nothing (nothing is lovely, but not very mysterious).

No, there were smoking jackets, bed jackets, peignoirs, robes, caftans, gowns, pajamas and many variations of each. I will show more in the future, but for now . . . . . .

Left to right: a quilted lounging or bed jacket from the 1950s or 1940s, a boys’ size 18 lounging jacket from the 1950s or 1960s (just right for a small woman, too), a babydoll gown and peignoir set from the 1960s or 1970s, and two 1950s bed jackets.

One should not neglect one’s fashion presence just because (maybe) no one else is around. Much more important if someone is.
I love finding these beautiful old high-quality items.  Everyone deserves the luxury.

There’s nothing like receiving casual guests in a smart caftan or reading in bed in a lovely gown with matching robe because if the doorbell rings . . . . . . . .well, you just never know . . . .. . . .

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 . . . . . .

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 . .. . . . . . . . . . . . .

RARE FIND! TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S MEN’S COTTON PAJAMAS – JUST WHAT I’D BEEN DREAMING OF . . . . . .

IMG_1669The most comfy, wonderful 100% cotton sleepwear in near-perfect condition.  I’m in heaven!  It has been years since my last pair was discovered, and I’ve been thinking about finding more . . . . . . . …

And, in a great color for me.  Blue always seems to be the men’s favorite.  Love the classic medallion print and big front buttons.  The waist closes with two buttons in front, and there’s stretchy elastic across the back.

Although it’s a vintage large size, the pants fit fabulously – not too big, not too long.  “Will wonders never cease?”  This pair was made in Canada for Simpson Sears, when the Simpson’s department store company was amalgamated with Sears & Roebuck up north.

Perfect now that evenings are getting cooler.  No matter how hot and humid it may be during the day, I’m finding the urge to snuggle up at night . . . . . . . . . . . .
