I recall reading in Bill Bryson's The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid that his father was a journalist, and a night-owl.

He used to wander to the kitchen and make himself snack-platters while writing, at all hours of the night.

The problem technically was that he never used to wear pajama pants.
But I remember, a lot of men used to be like that.

Not saying anything dirty or sexual, they really thought it was "healthier".

Not sure why.

When I'm alone I've fallen into the habit (or rather out of it), but I do it because I find the elastics too tight and uncomfortable.

Well, they say the older one gets the more one dresses for comfort; not fashion.

Of course for Bryson problems arose when there were four teenagers kissing in the dark.
And here comes the dad, butt glistening in the moonshine, to get some snacks.
He's blissfully unaware anyone is watching, while the shocked teenagers gasp in horror - the next encounter will be full frontal.

So what?
I think it's healthy.

Each to their own I say. But I'm really puzzled by ^^^^^ that.....

How on earth are you wearing your bottoms to find the elastic tight and

uncomfortable?

No it is too tight in modern boxers or pajamas for adult men.

It's painful - it cuts into you.

Maybe they took a man in China, and decided this is the average size.

But people of all types say garments don't fit these days.

That's one example for men.

And the main pain is the elastic that goes around the waist.

But for clothes nobody ever sees, you eventually think screw-it.
I just leave it off.

Have you checked in the mirror lately? Middle aged spread?

Could it be that its time for you to upsize??

These days its usually the 1/2 inch soft elastic band with lots of give?

Just remember you have left them off if you have to answer the door.

No they fit - at first.

Sleep for a few hours.

No this isn't comfortable at all.

And there is only small, medium and large.

Talking budget places - sorry not very rich.

And none of them fit me at all.

Budget places usually cut neat..... very neat.

That way every 20 or so garments will make one gratis!

So buy bigger.

Problem I have is being pre-diabetic, I am more sensitive to associated pain and especially on my lower back problems. Have read where more people sleep nude now but I can't. I wear elastic banded shorts. If a fire breaks out, I don't want to be caught with my pants down, ha, if I have to make a quick exit.

If you wear clothes to bed, you're not really a man... imo.

Walking around your own house in the night? Nude as hell. Only good excuse is temperature. When it's 50 inside, buy yourself some nice slippers. Pay your wife to make you a few robes for different seasons. A light robe for getting the mail is great if you have to worry about neighbors.

But now you go to Woolworths.

Not even that "up-market".

What is the price of men's pajamas?

You can buy wine and vegetables with that.

As a bloke, you gonna pay a quarter of the price of a real suit, just to buy something nobody ever sees?

Hi Facebook, look at my new pajama shirt I bought at woollies.

Oh the nostalgia, my first Saturday job was at Woolworths but alas we no longer

have any Woolworths in the UK.

I was under the impression that they had gone completely to the shopping centre

in the sky!!

Woolworths is still very much in South Africa.

Not all branches sell clothing.

Meeting a bro before Christmas.

A nice wife, pushing a stroller and more kids.

Thinking these people are are so great.

Next thing I hear is: "PETER!

I'm thinking what the hell is going on now, and looking to dive behind the nearest Christmas decor.

You know, when two stags meet in nature, it is quite a sight.
People aren't sure, are they going to fight?
Or are they friends?

Yeah I remember in the bush how terrified we both were.
Peeing on our feet to keep away the Athlete's Foot.

A handshake won't do - that was a man-hug.
Nice to see you.
Till next time brother.

I just don't wear anything to bed. With the heating on, my room becomes a furnace, especially if the oven has been turned on at any time of the day in the kitchen. So, even in winter I do not wear a stitch to sleep. However, that's never been because my pyjamas were uncomfortable. The last set I had were very comfortable... but I was about thirteen last time I wore actual pyjamas. They were Dennis the Menace (the UK version) and featured a red background, and a repeating pattern made up of the faces of Dennis himself, and his dog, Gnasher, and they were smashing... Until I grew out of them. Right around then, the temperature for sleeping just became a pain in the arse for me, and I gave up. So rather than having sleeping clothes, what I would do instead is have a pair of soft joggers next to the bed, so that if I needed to jump out for any reason, be it to go to the bathroom, or in an emergency, I would have something to put on in a hurry.

The only thing I have ever objected to about clothing in bed, is that it became unbearable from a temperature point of view.
