Pajama Party

why your favorite pj’s should get
to see the light of day
There’s something special about a crisp menswear-inspired cotton shirt. It’s perfect tucked into jeans, looks chic with slouchy trousers and it’s even better if it just so happens to have a matching companion—a pair of pajama pants.

This double-duty styling has been seen in editorials and on staffers at 770 who can’t get enough of this quirky trend (seen above on our head of crewcuts design, Jenny Cooper). Our vintage pajama tops are just right to tuck in and try this “night-for-day” idea.
