Who does lovely, "luxury" pyjamas?

A dear friend has asked for some pyjamas for Christmas. She has had a tough year and I want to give her something that will feel nice, look nice and be a bit more exciting than a pair from M&S or the like.

Any ideas? Happy to spend up to 100 pounds for this friend.

A friend of mine (and ex sex columnist in a national newspaper) swears by this company...

hush?

Brora or Toast are good.

nipersvest Fri 16-Nov-12 11:48:27

or the white company

Another vote for hush Since I have found them, I haven't shopped anywhere else for PJs.

Bonsoir: here

I have bought some as presents before and they are very nice.

strictlycaballine Fri 16-Nov-12 16:14:55

Here too Derek Rose

Omg. On the Derek rose website. They have jarmies for over £ 400 hmm

Another OMG at the derek rose PJ's, they are not even nice, if someone got me a £400 set of PJ's I'd cry (and not tears of joy).

I've got my eye on the ivy star PJ bottoms in Fat Face with a henly t-shirt or vest.

I have always got really nice J by Jasper Conran or B by Ted Baker ones from Debenhams. Nice mix of cosy luxury, usually a mix of silk & soft jersey.
Not cheap but not crazy expensive either.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren? They're about £100 I think.

Hush pyjamas are fab. I usually wait for the sales.

Glossynotflossy Fri 16-Nov-12 21:40:51

Try TK Maxx. May be something there maybe not.

ArcticRoll Fri 16-Nov-12 22:36:07

Hush and Toast

jamaisjedors Fri 16-Nov-12 22:50:46

Big NO to Hush. I have a couple of pairs from there and they have gone really bobbly and hard.

I have some from the white company which are the same age and are just cut that much better and the fabric is still soft.

I wash and wear the 2 pairs of white company pjs I have and the rest languish in the cupboard.

Am waiting for the sales for my next pair!

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 13:51:50

If Derek Rose not suitable, then can really recommend women's pjs from

Brooks Brothers especially if you are long in the leg. Really beautiful cotton that last and last. I have had one pair for over ten years!

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 13:52:22

And no, I wouldn't spend £400 on pjs either ... grin

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 13:54:28

Dh loves Derek Rose cotton lounge shorts and t-shirts. Really beautiful soft cotton that washes beautifully and lasts forever.

dinkydoos Sat 17-Nov-12 13:57:48

Just to add I got bought some Derek rose pyjamas last Christmas, but def no where near £400!
I know they were expensive, but honestly the best I have ever had, always sad when they are in the wash.
It's the quality of the cotton, it's divine!

MichelleObarmy Sat 17-Nov-12 14:03:49

Urrrr no offence...but some seriously hideous PJs being touted about on this thread!

I have a few pairs of Ralph Lauren pj's - a tartan winter pair with a black lace edged long sleeve tee top, and a blue and white cotton striped pair with the same top in white.

They are gorgeous and come in a lovely gift box.

Hint: if you buy them in an Outlet, like Bicester, you could get her a nice cable knit blanket too?

Tommy Hilfiger will be doing a gorgeous tartan gift tin with cashmere socks in this year. I was achingly fawning over some samples in their Supplier showroom last week, and heavily hinting unsuccessfully for a gift sample. sad

Another big no to Hush, not as a special present, they wear terribly and can be very hit and miss size wise.

Brora, Toast, Celtic Sheepskin all lovely.

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 14:56:39

Each to their own Michelle - just trying to be helpful

Another suggestion here from the White Company

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 14:58:16

meant to add in a wink there - sorry - not being snippy!

worth checking out John Lewis too here

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 15:01:33

Also, there's a designer of really lovely (more modern) sleep and lounge wear -who I think may be Dutch- whose collection is entirely in gorgeous, soft, grey, good quality cotton. Wracking my brains to think of her name/outlet. Will research and get back to you.

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 15:09:20

This isn't it but similar here

strictlycaballine Sat 17-Nov-12 15:13:34

Good choice www.idlewildlondon.com/ Idlewild London

ComradeJing Sat 17-Nov-12 20:53:45

Thank you all so much!

The (non 400 quid) Derek rose ones are lovely! Will have a think and a look through everything suggested.

Have to order online sadly as I'm overseas so no outlet shopping for me.

jamaisjedors Sun 18-Nov-12 11:33:16

Are these bodas what you were thinking of caballine? Think I've seen them recommended on here before but not tried them.

strictlycaballine Mon 19-Nov-12 16:51:24

That definitely rings a bell, thank you Jamaisjedors although I remember more grey jersey cotton ... . Will investigate! Good to have link anyway.

Glad you found something you like ComradeJ

i like my white co pjs, they have worn/washed really well

Eostre1 Fri 19-Sep-14 15:34:45

I found this thread last year when I was searching for a new pair of pj's & since I'm now ordering my second pair, I thought I'd share my findings here in case anyone is still looking.

In the end I went with a friends recommendation of PJ Pan. The pj's have washed well & 9+ months on, are still as lovely as when new. Lovely quality cotton, great fit and made in Britain.

I've had a couple of pairs of DKNY pjs and they have been brill. No fading and lovely designs
