If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, fall is probably winding down now. Outside of my house, it’s in the 30s and 40s, the trees are completely bare, and there have already been a few days of snow.
During this season, I like to keep on my pajamas, have a coffee and a donut, and maybe binge on some Netflix. Of course, this being 2020, time has lost most meaning, and it’s actually Thursday, which is not unlike Sunday, except that I have to take Zoom meetings and take out the garbage.
Here are some creature comforts that might make the rest of the year seem like every day is a calm, lazy, Sunday, rather than an interminable Monday.
If you are like a lot of us, (specifically, me) then your lounge clothes are old sweatshirts and sweatpants. Silk Pajamas? That’s for Italian cashmere magnates for whom the time of day is just some abstract concept. Wait, that’s us. In 2020. Try these on for size and see how the role fits you.
Unfortunately, you still need to take out the garbage, which I imagine Italian magnates have people to do that for them. Luckily, you can throw on the most luxurious accessories, this Brunello Cucinelli cap and this hand-rolled Vanda Fine Clothing scarf, to do just that.
And shoes? For your walk down the driveway, why not indulge in the best? These are crafted from genuine Harris Tweed and lined in cozy sheepskin. To call them “slippers” is almost an insult, and given that you will walk precisely 20 ft each way, these shoes, even though hardly inexpensive, could be a decades-long investment.
Top & Bottoms + Treats
Inside, you keep on this de Bonne facture sweater and even change into these Blue Blue Japan pants, which, besides being made from nubby, sturdy, but comfortable sashiko, also have a convenient elastic waistband. This way, you are not imprisoned if you need to walk away from your zoom meeting to restock on your bomboloni. Thank the cosmos for the internet, which allows you to order food from across the country, straight to your door, even in the middle of a pandemic.
