Ask the MB: Trouble Keeping PJs On

Ask the MB: Trouble Keeping PJs On
Q: Re: American Apparel Slim-Fit Pajamas. Help, MB! Neither I nor the woman I sleep with cares what I wear to bed, as it never stays on for long enough for us to form an opinion about it. What am I doing wrong?
--Ben


A: Obviously, you are not having enough sex in your kitchen, on your lawn, or in the elevator at work. When we hit the sheets, we're more than ready to sleep at least 75% of the time.

California Fleece Slim Fit Pant via American Apparel, $36.00
California Fleece Slim Fit Pant via American Apparel. $36.00.
Q: What do MB's wear to bed? Trying to spiff up someone I know away from some of the current "outfits" of ratty sweatshirts and the same plaid pajama pants. Thoughts???
—Jennifer


A: Style never sleeps, baby! This is why we recommend you buy your man a pair of these American Apparel California fleece slim-fit pants. Comfy as hell for sleeping -- especially now that it's chilly -- and suitable to run out for coffee and a paper, with two pockets to store the change. Rated 4 1/2 stars by American Apparel users, with one female user summing it up nicely: "Would cuddle with any boy in these!"

Broken-in pocket jersey polo  via J. Crew, $39.50

Q: Why are shirts made for the fat f***ers of the world and not for slim build guys. Is it still ok, not to want to have baggy clothing that makes you look as if you have just been released from prison?
—Bystander

A: Let's be honest. Most of the shirt-wearing public are fat f***ckers. Have you seen the latest US obesity statistics? Brands are just making what people can wear without them looking like a stuffed sausage.

However, there are companies that understand not everyone looks like Dick Cheney. Just about anything from Urban Outfitters will do, as will the entire American Apparel collection. As much as we might hate to admit it, one of our favorite shirts over the past two years is the J.Crew broken-in jersey polo. It's well-made and versatile; and with its slim cut and short sleeves, doesn't leave a single bench press to waste.
