Also known as dressing gowns, mens bathrobes are usually made from a towelling or similiar absorbent textile, and often act as both a towel and a relaxing piece of loungewear.
A man’s bathrobe is an informal and loose, open gown that is fastened with a fabric belt, and is often put on over pyjamas or just boxer trunks. The dressing gown for men has roots from 18th century Asia, where the Japanes ‘yukata’ is a cotton kimono that is worn as a bathrobe or outdoor summer clothing.
Men’s bathrobes can be categorised by types of collar, and by material, as follows:
Shawl collar – the collar closes around the neck just like a shawl, and is often a very warm and cosy bathrobe.
Hooded – simply, the bathrobe with a hood!! Helps to get wet hair dry.
Kimono – the traditional Japanese bathrobe, is without collar and often worn during summer months as well as winter.
Flannel – soft, woven fabric, often cotton or wool, which is loosely spun.
Terry – terry bathrobes are made from a pile fabric, usually cotton, with uncut loops on either side. The loops give extra absorbency to the fabric.
Velour – similar to terry fabric, but more luxurious and softer to the feel.
Waffle – this bathrobe fabric had excellent water absorbency, and has a “gridlike” appearance due to it being loosely spun. Lightweight fabric.
