I know that they are neither stylish nor beautiful but they are handy. Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation? Ideally quality thick towelling.

A man's terry towelling hooded dressing gown?

It's really beachware I'm after, bit late in the season I know. Just something comfy and warm to put on after a dip in the sea.

SIL made one for herself out of a couple of bath towels from primark. No idea why they aren't available as freely as they are for kids!

I was thinking the same, perhaps I could make one myself.

They do definitely exist as I have seen them for sale in places like St Ives and Padstow. Maybe try googling for surfer shops?

Yes they do exist, but you're right not in shops that I recognise which is why I was after a recommendation.

I was going to say surf shops too. My dh has got one.

What you'll be wanting is a Robie robe. Not sexy at all but DH who swims in the open air year round swears by them.

Yeah! Thanks for your help.

don't know if they are big enough for grown men (!) but we got some lovely thick big towels online from a company called Hooded Owls...
