A man's home is his sanctuary, it is the place where he should be able to be himself and just relax. Just like the author Catherine Pulsifer said, "Home is where we should feel secure and comfortable." That is why it is important to dress comfortably and in a way that makes you feel nice and relaxed when you are at home!
In this blog post, we will discuss types of clothes and items that are perfect for any man who wants to feel relaxed and comfortable, yet stylish. We will cover everything from pajamas for men and loungewear to a more relaxed kind of formal wear, so you can feel confident (yet comfortable) when you are lounging around the house.
So, what does the modern gentleman and stylish men wear at home?

Make Pajamas Part Of Your Personal Style
You can still present yourself as a well dressed man even if your are just lounging around the house on a Sunday morning, or even sleeping! We believe that having a good and stylish set of pajamas for men that fit properly is a necessity and should be a must-have for every well dressed man.
The sleepwear market for men has flourished in the last couple of years and today you can find pajamas in a variety of both subtile and bright colours, cool patterns, and soft fabrics. So no need to settle for the standard and classic pyjama sets, or even an old t shirt. We would recommend all modern men to get themselves at least on stylish set of sleepwear!
And if you want to be extra stylish, then why not consider getting yourself a leisure robe, also know as 'housecoat' or 'dressing gown'. By wearing a robe over your stylish pajamas, you will most definitely be the best dressed man at the breakfast table!
Psst. If you want to make sure your pajamas (or other pieces of clothing) last and feel like new for a long time, remember to always check the garments care labels!
Apart from having nice and good quality sleepwear and pajamas, we also believe that another wardrobe staple every modern man should have, is great loungewear and athleisure wear.
Why you might wonder? Simply because your comfy clothes should not be limited to just pajamas and sleepwear!
When some hear the word 'loungewear' they might instantly think about the classic grey sweatpants and some old t shirt. But forget all about that! When it comes to modern loungewear for men, the options are endless. You can choose to get the classic sweatpants and sweatshirt from one of the standard high street brands like Adidas or Puma. Or perhaps a modern tracksuit from Ralph Lauren is more your style?
However, remember sportswear is not only for the gym. Due to the fit and fabric often used for sportswear, it is the perfect thing to wear when chilling on the sofa or drinking a cup of coffee in your garden!
Whether you are looking for a cozy pair of sweatpants to lounge around in or a stylish sweatshirt to wear on a casual day, make sure you choose something that makes you feel comfortable and confident.

Dress Smart Without the Classic Suit Jackets
Do you prefer to still dress sharp and well even when spending a whole day at home? We do not see any reason why you should sacrifice style over comfort. You can still wear your favourite classic button up dress shirt for men when staying home a whole day, but maybe leave your suit jacket in the wardrobe. Because sometimes it might be a good idea to dress down and lean into what some might call casual wear.
When you are in your office job, we know that dressing smart is a great look. However, at home is a great place to try different ideas when it comes to your personal style, and perhaps start a style journey! Why not wear a colour you have never worn before!
Psst. A little pro tip from us to you. When hanging and storing your shirts in your wardrobe, we recommend you use high quality wooden hangers or a non-slip option like velvet hangers.
The famous shoe manufacturer John Wildsmith (known for his high quality shoes) once said "You are either in your bed or in your shoes so it pays to invest in both". And we could not agree more!
When it comes to what to wear at home in terms of footwear, we highly recommend that you give your feet a break from formalwear shoes like leather derby shoes. So kick off your office shoes (don not forget the shoe trees if needed) and slide into a comfortable yet stylish pair of slippers or trainers!
However, if house shoes is not your thing, lounging around in your socks work fine as well. The important thing is that you let your feet have a rest. What is great is also the fact that there are many different and fun socks for men on the market today! We believe that a pair of fun and colourful socks will definitely brighten up your outfit (and maybe day)!

Give Your Old Clothes a New Life
Remember, if you do not have much comfy and relaxed clothes but want some, buying new might not be the answer. By looking in the back of your wardrobe, you might be able to find some clothing which you totally forgot about, that can be turned into your new comfy outfit.
So before buying new comfy clothes, double check the back of your wardrobe. An old oversized dress shirt for men can easily be worn as comfy clothes together with a pair of relaxed fit pants.
This way of re-purposing old clothes into new at-home outfits is a great way to save money and still look good!

The Bottom Line
When it comes to at-home style, comfort is key. But that does not mean you have to sacrifice your personal style or overall appearance (you can still wear your favourite extreme cutaway shirt). However, being at home is the perfect time for you to kick off your boots, put away your pocket squares and throw on something more comfortable and relaxed.
With the right pieces, you can still look and feel great even when you are just relaxing at home. So, next time you are getting ready for a lazy day on the couch, make sure you choose clothes that reflect your personal style. After all, your home is your sanctuary!
We hope you enjoyed this blog post on what the well dressed and modern man could wear at home. Remember, One of the most important things to remember when dressing for relaxation at home is that comfort is key. You should never sacrifice your comfort in favour of style, because then you will not be able to relax properly. Instead, focus on finding pieces that are both comfortable and stylish.
And remember, in a modern capsule wardrobe there should always be some comfy clothes!
