Wearing one of the best robes for men is an indication that you’re the ruler of your own domain; you are not trying to dress elegantly but are an elegant person—there’s a difference. Think of the old tradition of the housecoat or smoking jacket. While practical in purpose, having a separate garment to lounge around your home is the pinnacle of opulence. Whether it’s made from water-absorbing terrycloth, sumptuous silk or rich velvet, robes underscore the idea that elegance is a lifestyle, something that lasts well beyond a moment.
But what kind of lifestyle depends entirely on you. Covering yourself in, say, a jacquard robe tells others that you value the classics. A printed option made of organic cotton, on the other hand, conveys ease and a kind of indifference in the vain of Ferris Bueller. Whatever you choose to wear, it should represent your personality and values.
Below, a selection of the best men’s robes, all primed to make you the lord of your castle.
Desmond and Dempsey Quilted Robe
There’s something special about a robe that merges art and the outdoors. This three-quarter-length quilted robe not only keeps you toasty during chilly night but its painterly print also feels delightfully crunchy and urbane at the same time.

Derek Rose Duke Cashmere Robe
Cut from a cashmere fabric woven by Loro Piana and lined with Italian silk, this hand-cut robe more than lives up to its noble name. It also extends past the knees, so it feels more like a monarch’s regal cape than something you’d slide into after a quick shower.
Bown of London Dressing Gown
Made of Egyptian cotton and dyed a rich claret color, this dressing gown is perfect for those who want to feel regal. The money is in the details, like the rope piping, luxe shawl collar and deep pockets for those mid-movie snack runs.

The contrasting white piping gives it an elevated feel.
