Lounge wear by Hamilton and Hare, luxury for your days off

More than a year ago I wrote about a new underwear brand that I really wanted to try out (read the post here). This brand was Hamilton and Hare and my wishes came true when my wife decided to give me some of these luxury boxers for Christmas. In their own words, "Hamilton and Hare set out to make the best underwear around" and I think they've come a long way in succeeding to reach this rather ambitious aim. The Hamilton and Hare boxers are, at least, the best quality boxers I've ever had.

Several new colours and designs have entered the Hamilton and Hare range of boxers since I got  mine and here are two which I think look particularly good.

Love the design of this boxer, and the yellow is marvellous.

Enough about the boxers, that's not what this post was going to be about. A while ago Hamilton and Hare introduced a new product line, the lounge wear, and that's what I want to present here. Lounge wear is what you put on to wear around the house on days when you have some time off. Days when you have time to relax, have a large and slow breakfast, read a book, watch telly or simply just don't do anything. Lounge wear is for times when you don't intend to leave the house. Many people decide to stay in their pyjamas on such days, or maybe just walk around in their underwear or a track suit. Neither of which is particularly stylish and the thought of being seen in such attire may strike fear in the style conscious gentleman. Hamilton and Hare has come up with the perfect solution with their range of lounge wear: the house coat and the house trousers. I absolutely love these products and if this is what you're wearing, you would actually want the neighbours to come knocking, just so you could show off you're wearing.

The house coat is a real piece of luxury. The fabric is made from the finest merino wools from the oldest mill in Italy, the Vitale Barberis Canonico. The double breasted fastening makes it a much better fit and much better looking that standard belt tied dressing gown, and it is silk lined for extra comfort. 

Below I've included pictures of the two house coat models and some of the different house trousers available. The charcoal house coat with Prince of Wales patterning is my favourite and I would love to pair it with the olive green house trousers.
