Among new designs are those with decorations to represent a passion: a comic, a team, or a television show. These top five dressing gowns include the best selections for every man.
1 Toweling Dressing Gowns

Toweling dressing gowns have grown in popularity as men are more willing to bring this echo of the gym or spa into the home. All-cotton toweling is the most absorbent for the man who likes to step out of the shower straight into his dressing gown. Many gowns have a percentage of the less absorbent bamboo or viscose to create a more luxurious feel. Synthetic fibres are the least absorbent. Cut-loop cotton toweling is a luxurious, high absorbency choice. Men's toweling dressing gowns may have hoods, be personalised, and are often white or deep colours such as wine or navy. Popular brands include imports like Ralph Lauren and Jockey. Lengths range from mid-thigh to ankle-length. Measure the density of toweling by grams per square metre: The median for toweling is 500 gsm, comparable to a standard bath towel. Luxury toweling weighs in at 600-900 gsm.


2 Fleece Dressing Gowns

Some fleece dressing gowns have traditional shawl collars; others have hoods. Either way, these are warm and cosy wraps for cooler weather. They commonly fall to about the knee; a few fall to the ankle. Colours are solid, striped, and checked. The thickest Coral fleeces can turn the wearer into something of a plushie. Ambassador Coral Fleece is a double-sided leopard print, but blanket-weight Coral fleece makes a warm winter dressing gown. Popular brands of fleece dressing gown include Tom Franks, Harvey James, and Rocha John Rocha.


3 Hooded Dressing Gowns

Some are made from thick, spa toweling and may offer personalisation.

Natural fibres make comfortable dressing gowns, often in the traditional designs for which they were originally used. These kinds of men's dressing gown range in price from very reasonable to some of the most expensive in the market. Derek Rose is a traditional choice for moderately priced lightweight cotton or silk dressing gowns. Cool weather natural fibres are cotton flannels and worsted wools in solid colours, tartans, and traditional striped patterns. Derek Rose features shawl collars and pockets on medium to long robes. Silk dressing gowns from such shirtmakers as Turnbull & Asser and Sean O'Flynn are the kind of purchase that a person may not be able to afford if he has to ask the price. However, many handsome silk dressing gowns from China and Japan echo traditional European designs or bring samurai style to the English home. Chinese silk dressing gown designs include heavy fabrics embroidered with large dragon patterns. Japanese silks are typically lightweight. Wherever the garment is made, one of the most prized and comfortable silks is mulberry silk, the traditional fibre made when silkworms are fed a diet exclusively of mulberry leaves.
