National Pajama Day! Posted on 16 Apr 12:18
Today is National Pajama Day and given the resurgence of the pajama as clothing for day and night, home and play, we thought this celebration was a great way to honor this Budd staple.
Pyjamas, pajamas, jim jams or jammies, call them what you will, everybody has a favorite pair of pjs languishing in their drawer. Indeed, who amongst us, doesn’t dream of heading home at least once a week to languish in them?
A product synonymous with Budd, this luxury had only ever been available for the men. Now, with the launch of a women's line in 2017, everyone can enjoy the pure elegance of Budd pajamas.
Daniel Day Lewis showed just how great the Budd pajamas looked in Phantom Thread, donning them so stylishly for much of the movie, even when in the clutches of a few killer mushrooms. Much has been said about the actor’s sartorial know-how and splendor throughout the film and his first hand involvement in choosing his wardrobe showed a great, aesthetic eye. Mr Woodcock even gave his pj’s a daytime makeover, twinning them with his Anderson & Sheppard overcoat, for a louche look that really worked.
Budd offers a multitude of qualities and colors, from simple poplins and luxurious silks, through to cotton cashmeres for when the nights draw in. The minute things warm up or our cases are packed for hotter climes, we love the linen look and the lightness of the Batistes.
