It was late, and he had been close to retiring before the bell began ringing frantically. Striding to his study with the letter clutched in his hand, the skirts of his robe flared behind him like the wake of his ship. "A quick glass of claret" he called to the panting messenger hurrying behind, "and then to France!…"
Elegant, luxurious, sumptuous - it's made from so much velvet and silk taffeta it's almost decadent. Just the thing to keep out the chill while taking your morning draught of caffeine or an evening glass of claret.
Based on 18th and 19th century examples, this double breasted house gown is made from 100% cotton velvet in a rich burgundy and lined in black 100% silk taffeta by James Hare. Reaching down to the ankles, it features two capacious pockets with three-point flaps, high collar, stylish broad lapels and flared button cuff. Once you've put this on you will find it extremely difficult to take off again!

Cut to fit comfortably over a shirt and waistcoat, our robe is fuller in the chest and stomach, longer in the arms yet smaller in the armhole than modern equivalents. It also features a supple collar and lapels for added comfort. If you would like a closer, more fitted look (as in the picture) then we recommend you buy a size down from your normal size.
