The best pyjamas and dressing gowns in the world? They're made from Sea Island cotton and cashmere and they're from Savile Row so it's a possibility.

On arriving at the house of an eminently stylish writer friend for a breakfast symposium on the nature of being, I could not have been more impressed when he opened the door clad in a pair of dark grey Sea Island cotton pyjamas, monogrammed slippers and an immaculate dove grey cashmere dressing gown. ‘I wear this lot around the house all day long,’ he nonchalantly replied when asked if he ‘dressed’ for breakfast. And for those of us who want to follow his sterling example there is, of course, Turnbull & Asser. ‘We offer monogrammed pyjamas in the finest two-fold 200 cotton that is finer than silk, and dressing gowns made from the finest cashmere,’ says company spokesman Roland Lowe Mackenzie. The favourite garments of both Hugh Hefner and Iggy Pop, one has to admit that pyjamas and a dressing gown beats the hell out of tracksuit bottoms and a T-shirt. Bespoke pyjamas start at £275; bespoke cashmere dressing gowns from £2,000.
