Wool & Cashmere Robe
Dress for the Occasion.
In the spirit of a certain 1920s-era gangster film…
You may find yourself reading The Times in bed, ruminating in the bouquet of a Cuban you confiscated after that stint in Central America.
Suddenly, you smell a different kind of smoke (not really, this is pure fantasy). Someone has lit a match in the drawing room. You stub out the cigar (it then goes back in your mouth).
Your imaginary assailants enter with itchy trigger fingers.
You take refuge under the four-poster bed and grab your imaginary Tommy gun and aim for the shins. One down. The other flees. With a demeanor best described as utterly calm, you glide across the hallway into the guest bedroom, where the window is conveniently open. Next, you’re dangling from the gutter (your wife doesn’t bat an eye, she’s accustomed to your eccentricities).
The wise guys in the getaway car are next. Seconds later, their Model T swerves into a tree and explodes. Your estate in flames, you look down to realize you’re still wearing your robe and silk PJs.
Now, how would this come off in sweatpants and a T-shirt?

Fully lined in handsome pinstriped taffeta. Mid-calf length. Rounded patch pocket at left chest and one at each hip. Self-fabric tie. She’ll love it, too. Imported.
