Dressing gown Friday

A marvellous article from The Chap magazine looks at the correct attire for working from home - a dressing gown (as shown here in plaid by Tennessee Williams). Here's an excerpt:
"When it comes to dress, one of the luxuries of home working is that every day is dress-down Friday. You can take this a step further by not getting dressed at all, and spending the entire day in your bedclothes. For the men, a pair of Wynciette pyjamas, a silk dressing gown and a pair of monogrammed velvet slippers are ideal. The ladies can spend all day sheathed in Chinese silks far too expensive to wear outside the house, and enjoy the sadly neglected delights of the bed coat. This splendid woollen garment maintains an even temperature on the arms and shoulders, while permitting the erratic flourishes of the professional writer's pen."
Well worth a browse.
Thanks to Derek Workman for the alert.
