Silky Soft Sleepwear

Make his nights extra cosy with a pair of luxurious pyjamas. Rawbought, which is known for its luxuriously soft sleepwear for women, will be launching its very first sleepwear collection for men this Christmas.

The mens range, which will be part of its Je Dors collection featuring simple short-sleeved shirts and long pants, is made from the labels same sustainable and breathable modal fabric. The collection will be available in two hues: black and blue.

Even if your man mostly sleeps in ratty tees and shorts, his very first pair of silky smooth pyjamas may just change his mind.
