The Pajamas of Kings... budget version

Verified Buyer Reviewed by The Beau from Chicago on Monday, November 29, 2010
These are Derek Rose's more affordable line (at retail, about two-thirds the price of English-made version), price cut obtained through omission of two skirt pockets (breast pocket remains) on the jacket and elastic (rather than drawstring) waist on bottoms and by manufacturing in Hungary rather than the U.K. Cut and fabric quality as good as English-made Derek Rose, but quality of sewing not quite in same league. All-in-all, though, a very good value-for-money proposition. I wear pajamas for lounging, so I like the tailored fit of these, but you may want to size up if you prefer your PJ's roomy. The tags in the PJ's were accurate (the size on the garment label was XL/Euro 54/UK 44), but Sierra Trading Post's size chart seems arbitrary... they list an L as 42-44 and that did not correspond to the size range here. My first pair I needed to return and size up. So, garment size accurate, size info on Web site not so much. [...]
