Do guys wear pajamas? It’s not a topic that I think about much. The Wall Street Journal asked that question in an article dated August 12, 2015. The consensus was “some men do” but “they’re hard to find.” This tracks an ABC News poll of 1,501 American adults which found that only 13% of men wore actual pajamas.
I can see that after getting home from work – putting on a pair of pajamas might provide that demarcation between the work day and personal time. It’s time to wind down, unlax, kick back. When I get home from work, I don a pair of jeans that are standing up in the corner waiting for me (I don’t think they’ve been washed in years). And a t-shirt. Slippers. For me, I have not had a pair of p.j.’s since I was in high school. It’s usually been a pair of boxers or gym shorts and a maybe a t-shirt in winter. Or nothing. Depending on the circumstances.
I have no context on whether guys who are reading this wear real pajamas. Maybe you don’t want to admit it or maybe you want to shout it from the rooftops. But I would be interested in an anonymous “yep” or “nope” — if you feel like sharing.
